Description: Learn to view eating (a self-regulated occupation) through the lenses of psychoneuroimmunology, which involves multiple gut-brain neurohormonal feedback loops of sensory enjoyment, positive social interactions, and the microbiome. Participants will learn to find “just-right” self-regulation approaches, evaluate developmental readiness, plan sound nutritional food-chains, and use family-focused reduction of mealtime stress to improve feeding dynamics. Objectives: • Predict which sensory, movement, and communication activities will most likely enhance self-regulated behaviors for individual children. • Evaluate a child from participant’s caseload for developmental readiness using the Rainbow Kid’s Play Scale, and the Rainbow Kid’s Mealtime Scale. • Construct a food chain that begins with a child’s favorite food and introduces new, more nutritional foods in a stepwise pattern that stays within a child’s comfort level. • Support family-focused mealtimes by following the Satter Division of Responsibility in Feeding model. • Assemble a menu of therapeutic activities (games, cooking, art, music, academics) and objectives that will guide the child toward eating competence and autonomy.
