#306 Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Disorders

Event location: Hampton Inn Perimeter Mall, Atlanta GA

Date: Nov 3-4, 2017

Research indicates that the prevalence of pediatric
feeding and swallowing disorders is 80% in the special needs population and
20% in typically developing children. Therefore, most pediatric clinicians
will encounter this disorder in some form or another. Feeding disorders come
in all shapes and sizes, such as coughing/choking during meals, poor
oral-motor skill acquisition, food refusal, oral aversion, g-tube dependence
and more. One must be versed in oral-motor and swallowing techniques,
respiration, GI issues, nutrition, motor/postural alignment, and behavioral
strategies. This is a two-day course focusing on how to approach pediatric
feeding and swallowing disorders, how to diagnose and prioritize treatment
options, and ensure successful outcomes for you and your patients. Day one
will concentrate on medical and nutritional intervention strategies, while
day two will focus on evaluation and therapeutic intervention. If children
are available, there will be 1-2 live evaluations.
