PROGRAM DETAILS

Many children, including those with cerebral palsy, prematurity, and gastro-esophageal reflux disease among others, present us with the special challenges of pediatric swallowing disorders. Too often, the whole child is lost as we struggle to address the myriad of symptoms with which we are presented. Reflux, chronic respiratory infections, poor nutrition and food refusal are just a few of the issues facing clinicians, parents and caregivers -- in the clinic, at school and at home. Management does not consistently take into account the important interplay between oral motor skills, respiration, gastrointestinal functioning, nutrition and learned behaviors.

This dynamic program will pull all the pieces together for professionals working with children with dysphagia. Beginning with a holistic approach to assessment, including consideration of gastrointestinal issues, postural stability, sensory skills, feeding readiness and including the traditional assessment areas of oral motor and pharyngeal functioning, participants will build the skills necessary to develop a comprehensive management plan. Attendees of this seminar will learn effective interventions in the areas of oral motor skills, nutritional considerations, airway management and behavior modifications. Ethical considerations specific to the pediatric population and their implications for our practice will also be discussed.


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Understand the interplay between oral-motor, gastrointestinal and respiratory systems
  • Apply principles of pediatric assessment in clinical and instrumental evaluation
  • Develop and implement holistic treatment plans which include nutrition, behavior management and normalization or sensation
  • Identify the ethical considerations specific to the pediatric population
  • How respiratory and gastrointestinal functioning impact swallowing
  • What the essential components of a feeding and swallowing assessment are
  • How learned behaviors interfere with feeding treatment and how to elicit appropriate feeding behaviors
  • When to facilitate postural stability for feeding
  • Which strategies facilitate increased swallow function
  • What the ethical implications of working with children with dysphagia are
