The assignment of AOTA CEUs does not imply endorsement of specific course content, products or clinical procedures by AOTA. • NBCOT Professional Development Provider - 13.5 PDUs Course Description: This two day seminar will focus on practical strategies to address behavioral, developmental and feeding assessment and intervention with high risk infants in the NICU. Factors related to parenting, the NICU environment, and the effects of altered sensory and motor experiences will be explored. Through video analysis, demonstration and case examples, participants will practice their clinical problem-solving skills for this specialized setting. Participants will enhance their observational and clinical skills, improving early identification of therapeutic needs that define targeted interventions in the NICU and during the transition home. At the completion of this seminar, course participants will be able to: • Discuss key elements of behavioral, developmental and feeding assessment for high risk infants in the NICU and at home. • Demonstrate assessment strategies used with high risk infants in the NICU, including components of the Dubowitz Optimality Scale, the NICU Network Neurobehavioral Scale (NNNS), the Preemie-Neuro and the Neonatal Eating Outcome Scale. • Incorporate assessment and treatment strategies appropriate at different postmenstrual ages and across and across different medical interventions, including therapeutic handling, and sensory-motor activities that improve function and developmental skills. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Challenges and Solutions for Infants and Children with Complex Feeding and Swallowing Disorders (Jun, 2020)
Jun 05 - 06, 2020 | Contact Hours 14.00 | USD $450 | Valhalla, New York
Challenges and Solutions for Infants and Children with Complex Feeding and Swallowing Disorders is organized by Education Resources, Inc. (ERI) and will be held from Jun 05 - 06, 2020 at Blythedale Children's Hospital, Valhalla, New York, United States of America. CEU Credits: This course meets the criteria for 14 contact hours (1.4 CEUs). Approved provider of continuing education by the American Occupational Therapy Association #3043, for 14 contact hours - Intermediate Level Occupational Therapy Process: assessment, intervention. The assignment of AOTA CEUs does not imply endorsement of specific course content, products or clinical procedures by AOTA. This course is offered for up to 1.4 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate Level, Professional area) Course Description: Challenges with infants and children demonstrating complex feeding and swallowing disorders are addressed in a holistic evidence based framework that takes into account interrelating systems. Populations range from newborn infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) through children in school based & rehabilitation settings. Problem solving will be addressed through lecture, videos, and case analyses. Functional outcomes are emphasized through targeted strategies based on sensorimotor learning principles and neural plasticity. Problem areas include: airway (e.g., laryngomalacia, laryngeal cleft, vocal fold paralysis, tracheostomy/ventilator); GI tract (e.g., gastroesophageal reflux and eosinophilic esophagitis); nutrition/hydration; advancing feeding in NICU and beyond to include tongue & lip tie; tube feeding & weaning; barriers to oral feeding & ways to overcome; picky/finicky eaters. Discussions will include the urgent need for specific outcomes and possible measures of frequency and intensity of direct and indirect interventions. Course Objectives: Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to: • Apply knowledge of airway problems to make management decisions for infants and children with oropharyngeal dysphagia • Identify barriers to successful oral feeding (e.g., nutrition, GI tract, and neurologic conditions) • Describe primary factors necessary as foundation to advance oral feeding in infants in NICU with parents actively involved • Demonstrate processes for advancing oral feeding in tube feeders. Implement intervention for picky eaters with a range of sensory and behavior based principles. • Determine strategies to measure intervention/treatment outcomes by time, frequency, and intensity
