This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 21 contact hours. Course Description: This course delivers clinically relevant assessment and treatment strategies for infants and children with neuromuscular impairments and challenges to their oral motor, feeding/swallowing and respiratory function. A special emphasis is on postural alignment and control as well as on sensory factors that can influence a childs feeding and swallowing. Effective treatment strategies to improve cheeks/lips, tongue, jaw and rib cage function will be highlighted. Participants will engage in extensive clinical problem-solving via group case analysis and patient demonstration sessions. Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to: • Clinically assess oral motor, feeding/swallowing and respiratory coordination function in infants and young children. • Detail the essential components of comprehensive intervention programming for young children with neuromuscular involvement. • Implement effective handling and positioning for the modification of oral motor, oral-pharyngeal and respiratory function in intervention programming. • Perform treatment strategies to improve the function of the cheeks/lips, tongue, jaw and rib cage in children with neuromuscular involvement. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
