Jennifer Meyer's Newest Course!
Can a child with a trach eat by mouth? Is a G-tube really the “End of the Road” for Feeding? Can a Rehab therapist use a stethoscope? Anatomy is the foundation for all we do. Get back to the basics with our most complicated patients. Study anatomy in a fun, hands-on way and apply techniques that will help your medically-challenging patients learn to eat. This highly interactive workshop for OT/COTA, PT/PTAs and SLP/SLPAs encourages participants to draw from their own experiences and caseloads for group problem-solving and discussion. Enjoy this hands on presentation that will encourage and motivate all participants. Go back to your medically-challenging patients with real tools to help!
•Feeding the trach-dependent child • Various tracheostomy tubes and their parts • Stethoscope: a valuable tool to listen for signs of aspiration in the lungs. • Understanding of specific muscle groups drives therapy techniques. • G-tube placement: immediate and long-term feeding implications. • Parent training and education. • Oro-pharyngeal sensory development and aversion prevention. • Positioning and handling techniques
NOTE: Participants should bring; red, orange, blue, green and black markers, scissors, a glue stick, and a small mirror for labs
