How does feeding, a process so integral to the child’s health and well-being, go awry? The focus of the 2 day Mealtime Miseries course is on the Transdisciplinary Effective Assessment and Treatment (TR-eatTM) model integrating oral motor therapy techniques and behavioral management for the treatment of complex feeding problems. The course covers innovative strategies, using video case examples, to address oral aversion, food refusal, poor transition onto solid foods, texture grading, learning to chew, self feeding and feeding difficulties related to autism and picky eaters. It is relevant for infants and children through school age. This course is packed with practical solutions and hands on techniques that will empower you with new treatment ideas for your most complex patients. These interventions are systematic and evidence based with research supporting outcomes. This course is appropriate for clinicians with all levels of experience.
