Children with complex feeding aversions/disorders in hospital, school and private practice settings present a challenge for clinicians. In this course, clinicians will learn a successful, comprehensive evaluation of complex problems, including those encountered by children with structural issues, cardiac issues, prematurity, Autism, syndromes, GI issues, sensory integration disorders, and Downs Syndrome. Day two will focus on a holistic treatment approach for common feeding disorders that are characteristic of many of these children, including tube dependency, lack of autonomy, rigid eating patterns, inability to regulate their own hunger/satiety and difficulty transitioning to table foods. In addition to innovative, effective treatment techniques, participants will learn how to determine what intensity of therapy is warranted. Many case studies with videos will be used to illustrate the complex nature of these children.
