NBCOT professional development provider-13 PDUs.This course is offered for up to 1.3 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level, Professional area). Course Description: Do you have a caseload full of children who refuse to eat because of sensory challenges, food sensitivities, behaviors, or even no apparent reason? This course addresses the growing problem of food refusals and nutritional deficiencies from a revolutionary new perspective and focuses on self-regulation, socio-cultural, and emotional perspectives while incorporating conventional nutrition, oral-motor skills, sensory processing and behavioral techniques. Susan’s highly successful, integrative approach integrates body, mind and spirit and uses play, the primary occupation of childhood, as a focal point to improve outcomes and plot a course to happier and healthier mealtimes. The seminar format involves extensive case problem solving and participants will apply the provided tools to their own clients. These tools include: structured observations of play and mealtime behaviors; food journals for nutrition, sensory, and food sensitivities; functional, measurable performance objectives aligned with academic goals; and play based mealtime implementation strategies. The participant will be able to: • Discuss commonalities in the development of play, emotional intelligence, and mealtime skills. • Identify common medical conditions associated with food refusals and the research-based evidence that needs to guide mealtime interventions. • Compare and differentiate a child's current food choices for nutritional value and sensory preference. • Generate plans for successfully introducing new and nourishing foods to develop epigentic resilience to disease. • Design therapeutic interventions that motivate and reward expanded food choices and the development of competent eating skills via the gut-brain connection.

Course Description: Designing effective treatment programs to improve strength, endurance and function in children with disabilities and chronic conditions can be enormously challenging. This course will help clinicians set realistic goals, prioritize treatment and implement successful programs for children with a variety of diagnoses including cerebral palsy, autism developmental coordination disorder, and obesity. An evidence based approach to outcome measures and intervention design will be discussed including frequency, intensity, duration and types of interventions to improve strength and function. Participants will observe and practice some of these measurement and intervention techniques during short demonstration sessions and case studies. Specific intervention activities will be discussed such as strategies to enhance strength, flexibility, endurance and function such as progressive resistive exercises, resistance bands, treadmill training, therapeutic ball exercises, aquatic exercise, structured play and yoga. Evidence on the effectiveness of existing community based programs and resources to improve physical activity, strength and endurance in children will be discussed. Course Objectives: Following completion of this course, participants will be able to: • Incorporate strengthening and endurance training strategies into treatment programs to maximize function in children with and without disabilities. • Integrate evidence from applied clinical and community-based strength and endurance training programs to enhance functional outcomes in children with and without disabilities. • Identify and use systematic and objective measures to document changes in function, strength and endurance at the body structure (impairment), activity (limitation) and participation (dis ability) levels. • Identify clinical and community-based programs that provide evidence to support function, strength and endurance in children with and without disabilities. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
