This program is designed for physicians, nurses, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, registered dietitians, behavioral health specialists, other health care providers and educators of the preschool aged child. Course content will include the evaluation of feeding problems in young children from a pediatric subspecialist’s perspective; discussion of how sensory issues impact the development of normally accepted feeding practices; food selectivity in children with autism spectrum disorder; and the impact of feeding difficulties on parents and families with toddlers and pre-school aged children. The program involves a combination of lectures, break-out sessions, and hands-on workshops; all of which will allow participants to attend areas of interest and learn evidence-based practices in both traditional and small group settings.
