TalkTools Instructor, Monica Purdy, will be taking a look at the essential connection between sensory processing and feeding. When therapists and families approach mealtime through the lens of the child and their unique sensory system, the pressure is off -- realistic expectations can be set, and anxiety can be reduced for the whole family. Monica will be providing her proven strategies for making feeding therapy a positive experience with the pediatric client taking the lead.
We want to hear from participants about their mealtime challenges – and solutions!
- Participants will be able to understand impacts of sensory processing on feeding.
- Participants will be able to implement 3 sensory-based, child-centric strategies to improve feeding
- Participants will be able to create a checklist for families to mealtime success at home
