Creating a Menu for Success
Feeding and swallowing problems in children are always diverse, frequently misunderstood, and difficult to detect and treat effectively.
Respiratory problems, gastrointestinal disorders, oral-motor abilities, and behavioral challenges are just a few of the factors that might interfere with feeding and swallowing, restrict responsiveness to therapy, and result in serious health problems.
To be most successful, doctors must avoid the impulse to examine and treat eating and swallowing issues separately; instead, they must create care strategies that account for connections between and among the oral-motor, gastrointestinal, and respiratory systems.
This crucial course recording discusses complicated eating and swallowing issues in children with a wide range of diseases.
Attendees learn effective ways for determining the underlying cause of dysphagia. The evidence foundation for various therapy, such as oral-motor procedures, behavioral interventions, dietary interventions, and respiratory control measures, is assessed.
Arm yourself with realistic recommendations and approaches for increasing function in these difficult youngsters, as well as compelling research to back up those strategies!
