In Lori’s updated Sensory/Motor Approach to Feeding class the complex issues surrounding feeding disorders are discussed. The class reflects new research and understanding of sensory processing and the impact on feeding.
Pre-feeding exercises designed to develop the motor skills for safe, effective, nutritive feeding and therapeutic feeding techniques are targeted.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify and define the developmental acquisition of feeding skills.
- Recognize individual oral-phase feeding deficiencies.
- List at least four goals of an SLP-administered oral-motor feeding program.
- Explain the benefits of improved oral movement in cases of oral-phase feeding deficiencies.
