Course Description

Feeding Therapy should be seen as a group project and not a solo mission. Although the feeding therapist is equipped with the knowledge regarding feeding skills and strategies, caregivers play an integral role in the long-term achievement of goals. Children eat many times a day in many different settings. Empowering families to take a seat at the table during therapy sessions will not only assist them in implementing strategies between sessions but may boost progress towards outcomes that will shorten the time a child receives therapy. This course will give therapists practical strategies and tools to involve families during feeding therapy sessions as well as activities and homework that caregivers can complete between sessions.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  1. Identify carryover strategies to address feeding therapy goals
  2. Describe challenges for families when implementing at home therapy plans
  3. Implement strategies and tools used during feeding therapy sessions with parents and caregivers
  4. Identify materials to be used by parents to target goals between sessions
