OT's and SLP Attend Picky Eaters Seminar

December 28, 2016

Speech-Langauge Pathologist Ashley DeBrouwere and Occupational Therapists Carlie Rinas and Brianna Woodard continue education at When Children Won't Eat: Picky Eaters vs. Problem Feeders seminar in Fargo. 

 All attendees felt this seminar was beneficial. The most important things learned were how to create, implement and individualize a feeding therapy program for problem feeders. With that, they also identified milestones to feeding; including identifying why children won't eat, how to identify physical, behavioral, motor, and sensory factors to eating. Also how to apply behavioral, social learning and systematic desensitization strategies.
