#7305 Understanding the Gastro-Intestinal Disorders that Lead to Feeding Aversions in Pediatric Care


Speech Language and Occupational Therapists are highly skilled at sensory and/or behavioral approaches to feeding disorders. Often times, however, there is a gap in knowledge regarding common Gastro-Intestinal in pediatric medical conditions (gastroesophageal reflux, dyspepsia, gastroparesis, and constipation) that can contribute to oral aversion. Less common conditions, such as eosinophilic esophagitis, food allergies, food intolerances, and altered gut flora can significantly impact gut comfort.
This course provided a basic understanding of Gastro-Intestinal Disorders and evidence based researched methods of treatment, including medications, formulas, dietary supplements, and probiotics. Case studies further illustrated how disorders were identified and treated. The participant came away with knowledge on how to better communicate with the child’s provider and multi-disciplinary team to ensure the greatest success in feeding therapy. Course instruction methods include lecture, demonstration, videos, case studies and question/answers. (Intermediate Level)
