In this 60-minute virtual workshop, Dr. Dodrill, presents about what NICU families can expect when having a child who has pediatric feeding disorder. This workshop is for families who have children with pediatric feeding disorder and the healthcare professionals who care for them.
Presented by Anais Cook, Caroline Duong, and Dr. Andrew Chu
Professionals from a feeding clinic talk about how the Infant Child Feeding Questionnaire can be used as an engagement tool to help identify potential pediatric feeding disorder and hear from a parent’s perspective on life after the NICU.
This workshop will help parents, caretakers and professionals living and working with children being discharged from the NICU to be as successful of eaters as possible. Dr. Toomey will discuss how very complicated feeding babies is, as well as when and why children may begin to struggle with their feedings/eating across the first 2-3 years of their lives. At each developmental time point, Dr. Toomey will give strategies for Setting Up Your Child For Success in order to guide them towards a path of developing a healthy, lifelong relationship with food.
Presented by Amy Delaney, PhD, CCC-SLP; Praveen Goday, MD, CNSC, FAAP; and Colleen Taylor Lukens, PhD, Mary Beth Feuling, MS, RD, CSP, CD
Join Feeding Matters for the workshop “Understanding Pediatric feeding disorder: A Case-based approach” presented by authors of the field-leading consensus paper published in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition. Featuring case studies on pediatric dysphagia, ARFID, and “picky eating”; this hour-long workshop also includes a pre-recorded Q&A with Dr. Amy Delaney, Dr. Praveen Goday, and Dr. Colleen Taylor Lukens.
Food is sensory and the sensory aspects of food help children know if food is safe or enjoyable for them to eat or try. We will take a careful look at each of the sensory properties of food and look at how we can carefully grade the sensory challenges in our food presentations to help children progress through developmental mealtime transitions and make mealtimes be more enjoyable for children and parents.
With the national increase in substance use, the resulting impact on infants and young children is immense. Not only does it affect them medically and developmentally, but also it affects their relationship with their primary caregiver. Infants who may have been exposed to substances in utero are predisposed to challenging eating behavior.
Oropharyngeal dysphagia presents with difficulty feeding, noisy breathing, arching, discomfort with feeding and growth issues. For years, these symptoms were felt to be related to gastroesophageal reflux disease but with the growth of aerodigestive centers nationwide, novel data suggests that these patients are aspirating during swallowing and GERD is rarely the primary driver of symptoms.
This workshop will focus on the feeding skills that significantly influence feeding difficulties in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and will specifically highlight research in the areas of medical, nutritional, skill deficit and psychosocial domains
