September 13, 2017

Pediatric Therapy Partners Speech- Language Pathologist Haley Nordskog received her certification in “Mealtime Miseries: Management of Complex Feeding Issues”. At this ASHA (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association) approved continuing education course, Nordskog learned more strategies and approaches for feeding therapy, and gained more information on implementing oral motor exercises with feeding therapy. Nordskog identified variables that can cause complex pediatric feeding problems, whether it medical, oral motor or behavioral, etc. She identified ways to apply texture grading techniques, treatment strategies for “picky eaters” and how to implement feeding therapy for children of all ages and abilities.
