In this course, we will review the components of a multidisciplinary feeding therapy program and how we implement the program at our facility. We emphasize a multi-disciplinary approach to treating patients with feeding disorders that comprehensively addresses medical, nutritional and developmental concerns.

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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
