Feeding and Swallowing Disorders in Infancy: Assessment and Management


The goal of this conference is to provide a framework from which to view the continuum of infant feeding options, including breast and bottle feeding. Focus will be on comprehensive assessment and management strategies. Participants will have the opportunity to expand their repertoire of evaluation techniques and intervention strategies when working with infants who demonstrate feeding or swallowing dysfunction. It will span from the hospital/NICU environment through homecare, EI, and outpatients within the first two years of life. This course will be relevant to physical and occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, nurses and other health professionals who specialize in or who have an interest in infant feeding disorders.
