Course Description

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.

The class includes two live evaluations and program plans, as well as interactive sensory and feeding practicums.
