Course Description

Managing pediatric dysphagia in infants and toddlers can be challenging as practices evolve, new protocols are implemented, and the acquisition of feeding and swallowing skills is a dynamic process in a developing child. This session will focus on unraveling the tangled web we weave when working with infants and toddlers. Attendees will learn foundational skills for assessment and treatment, review development of feeding and swallowing skills from before birth to 2 years old, learn when and why to apply treatment strategies, and get up to speed on current practices. Attendees will be given tools to implement immediately as well as provided resources to obtain additional training when working with infants and toddlers.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Express an understanding of the foundational skills necessary to assess and treat pediatric dysphagia in infants and toddlers.
  2. Provide examples of tools to use when working with infants and toddlers as they transition from birth to two years of age.
  3. Express an understanding of the benefits and limitations in current best practices including positioning, thickening, treatment of dysphagia, and both clinical as well as instrumental assessment.
  4. Identify and express understanding of when and why to apply strategies when managing pediatric dysphagia
