Course Abstract

Children who demonstrate picky and problem eating behaviors are some of the more difficult populations to treat as their difficulties with eating can consume the entire family. After the feeding evaluation is completed, the feeding therapist will need to determine which strategy is most appropriate for the child. It is important, regardless of which technique is chosen, that a family can complete activities with a high level of repetition at home.

This gave an overview of chaining as well as the SOS approach to feeding.

This course, as well as the intro course, have made me much more likely to pursue training in feeding therapy.
