When Children Won't Eat: Picky Eaters Versus Problem Feeders


The Sequential Oral Sensory (S.O.S) Approach to Feeding workshop is a trans-disciplinary program for assessing and treating children with feeding difficulties and weight/growth problems from birth to 18 years. It integrates posture, sensory, motor, behavioral/learning, medical, and nutritional factors to comprehensively evaluate and manage children with feeding/growth problems.

The 3.75-day Basic Conference is designed for babies, toddlers and small children. Other ages and special populations are covered in the Advanced Workshops.

The focus of the Conference will be assessing and treating infants and young children with Feeding Difficulties and Feeding Disorders. This includes “problem feeders” who may have mild to moderate neurological impairments and/or medical disorders, children with Autism Spectrum disorders, children with motor, oral-motor and/or sensory dysfunction, as well as the “picky eater”.

Target audience: Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Special Educators, Early Intervention Specialists, Nurses, Psychologists, Physicians, Dietitians, Mental Health Workers, other Child Care Providers and Educators.

Note: Training conferences are created for professionals. If parents wish to attend the training workshop, they must be accompanied by the child’s therapist.
