A leader in proven strategies for treating pediatric feeding disorders.

The Pediatric Feeding Institute provides workshops and training seminars in the area of pediatric feeding disorders. PFI follows the TR-eatTM model (Transdisciplinary Effective Assessment and Treatment) for working with children presenting with feeding problems.

We educate healthcare professionals about the incidence and etiology of this problem. PFI also offers training in treatment interventions through workshops, seminars and on-site consultation.

We have been conducting the workshop “Mealtime Miseries” throughout the US and Canada since 2007. Our research in the area of pediatric feeding disorders has been published in peer-reviewed journals.

"During my career as a speech pathologist, I’ve primarily worked with adults and only had one class in pediatric feeding/swallowing in college.  I went into the seminar knowing next to nothing about the topic and left feeling confident with the material.  Because of Carol and Elizabeth’s clear presentation with step by step instructions could comfortably implement approaches with a clear path for therapy.  The video case studies, visual aids/products and demonstrations were helpful and practical.  I will also consult the packet and abundant handouts to further guide me in my practice."
