Live WebinarThu, Mar 7, 2024 at 12:00 pm EST
Course: #10843Level: Introductory1 Hour
Strategies for working with children and their families to achieve feeding goals are discussed in this course. Typical feeding development, domain-specific (behavioral, anatomical, sensory) interventions, family-specific solutions, and various ways to explore and play with food are described.

20Q: In the Thick of It - The International Dysphagia Diet Standardization Initiative (IDDSI)
Presented by Jennifer Raminick, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S, Danielle Ward, MA, CCC-SLP
Course: #10756Level: Intermediate1 Hour
The importance of using IDSSI to provide standardized language when speaking about texture modification is discussed in this course. Comparisons of IDDSI and the National Dysphagia Diet (NDD), as well as IDDSI standards for pediatric vs. adult patients are presented. Additionally, potential barriers, solutions, and frequently asked questions related to implementation of IDDSI are described.

(Part 1: Course 10433)

Overview of Prematurity and Associated Conditions
Presented by Rhonda Mattingly, Ed.D, CCC-SLP
Course: #10535Level: Introductory1 Hour
An introduction to prematurity and its co-occurring problems and diagnoses is provided in this course. The impact of early experiences on outcomes, and short-term and long-term complications of prematurity, are described in relation to feeding and development.

Treating Skill-based Feeding and Swallowing Disorders: Birth to Three
Presented by Nancy B. Swigert, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Course: #10471Level: Intermediate1.5 Hours
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. Use of a total oral sensorimotor approach to treatment planning for feeding/swallowing disorders in children age 0-3 is discussed. Long-term and short-term goals and therapy objectives that are measurable, understood by payors, and that address rehabilitative, facilitative and compensatory strategies as well as caregiver engagement are described.

Assessing Skill-based Feeding and Swallowing Disorders: Birth to Three
Presented by Nancy B. Swigert, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Course: #10448Level: Intermediate1.5 Hours
This is Part 1 of a two-part series. Evaluation of feeding/swallowing in children age 0-3 is discussed, including: careful history-taking to allow comparison to age-typical anatomy, physiology and oral sensorimotor skills; assessment of overall body systems and skills with age-appropriate foods/liquids; and using assessment results to identify compensations and facilitations that support optimal function.

Feeding in Newborns with Cleft Lip and Palate: Using Evidence and Experience as a Guide for Success
Presented by Brenda Thompson, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Course: #10403Level: Intermediate1 Hour
The role of the speech-language pathologist or other feeding specialist in promoting infant feeding efficiency for optimal growth and development is described in this course.
