new info for me
Review by: Susan on August 15, 2012
Lots of good information about how to conduct feeding therapy no matter what the etiology of the problem. I really like the transdisciplinary approach!
Review by: Sherry on August 14, 2012
Practical information, not all theoretical.
Review by: Jasmine on August 14, 2012
Information was presented in an easy to understand format. The presenter explained the information clearly and thoroughly. There wasn't so much information that it had to be skipped over during the lecture and left up to the course participants to guess the meaning behind it, which can adversely affect course examination scores.
Review by: Beth on August 14, 2012

Review by: Amy on August 13, 2012
Good starat of a discussion about a transdiscplinary service delivery. Could have been expanded to enhance the value of having one provider interface with families and having that provider share information from the rest of the team.

I thought it was well organized and went along with the powerpoint slides
Review by: Alexandra on August 13, 2012
The presenter was a strong, informed speaker who gave pertinent and relevant examples that backed up her presentation. Her handouts were organized and well thought out. I will be using her sensory food acceptance form with my own babies I see as reference. Great!

Review by: Lauren on August 13, 2012
very interesting and thourough
Review by: Julie on August 13, 2012
some good examples of sensory activities with food
Review by: Donna on August 13, 2012
She followed the general outline using examples. I needed to take lots of notes to get the specifics of the larger grouped headlines. So when I took the exam, I had some confusion between the questions on the exam and the differences between multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary & trans-disciplinary approaches. More specifics in the outline would have helped me. However, I did learn a lot of valuable information. Thank you!

Review by: Colleen on August 13, 2012
The speaker was articulate and informative.
Review by: Navneet on August 13, 2012
Good overview. The benefits of the team approach were definitely made evident.
Review by: Anne on August 13, 2012
Interesting approach to feeding therapy. The presenter clearly outlined the different therapy groups, their goals, and target population. I especially appreciated the way she described the difference between multi, inter, and trans-disiplanary approaches- her concrete examples made the benefits of a trans approach especially clear.
