About the Workshop
This three-day workshop is designed for parents, therapists, educators and nurses. It is based on a holistic perspective of feeding development in the context of motor development, respiration, and the sensory system, as well as those critical components of communication and control.
The course will offer hands-on training in treatment techniques for introducing and refining spoon feeding, cup drinking, and finger feeding. It will also include program planning and treatment techniques for children with sensory issues and children receiving non-oral feeding.
