Feeding disorders are similar, which makes treating them difficult, especially when they're isolated from other factors inside and outside the body… but a misdiagnosis can lead to wasted time and unnecessary discomfort for your young clients, not to mention further dangers to their health.

Most of these "feeding" disorders are actually linked to respiratory, gastrointestinal, behavioral, and nutritional conditions, which aren’t commonly considered, putting you at a disadvantage from day one of treatment, and extending pain for your client.

That's where this online course puts you at an advantage!

Picky Eaters vs Problem Feeders & Best Practices in Dysphagia Management is a multi-system approach to feeding and swallowing disorders that prepares you to accurately identify, assess, and treat feeding disorders while considering aspiration, airway considerations, reflux, the GI tract and respiratory systems, sensory issues and dozens of other contributing factors.

You'll get access to self-paced modules that prepare you to treat the whole child from beginning to end, changing the battlefield back to the family dinner table. You'll walk away with dozens of strategies to intervene that use the interrelationships between multiple systems – such as respiratory, oral-motor, gastrointestinal – and contributing factors to the child’s diagnosis, like environmental, sensory, behavioral, and many others.

Plus, when you enroll you will get a FREE bonus training on managing complex swallowing and feeding disorders in children so they begin eating with ease.

Give your clients peace of mind and earn up to 18 CE hours, when you get started today…

Picky Eaters vs Problem Feeders vs Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)

Module 1

It's common for therapists to misdiagnose common feeding disorders because they're so similar, which means assessments are key to distinguishing between and properly treating each condition in your clients.

Key topics covered in this module include:

  • Organ system issues that affect feeding, such as breathing and postural stability, which need your attention first.
  • Easy modifications to improve muscle tone and posture, which increase the child's ability to eat successfully.
