Mealtime Miseries: 

Management of Complex Feeding Disorders

  

Course Description:
Carol Elliott and Elizabeth Clawson share their 30 years of combined clinical practice and expertise in this unique feeding course. Together they have developed the TRansdisciplinary Effective Assessment and Treatment (TR-eat) model. This model melds medical management, skill building and behavioral interventions to create a distinctive treatment method with outstanding outcomes for children with complex feeding problems.

  

This dynamic course will cover innovative strategies, using video case examples, to address oral aversion, food refusal, poor transition onto solid foods, texture grading, learning to chew, self feeding and feeding difficulties related to autism and picky eaters. Packed with practical solutions and extensive written handouts, this course will empower you with new treatment methods for your most complex patients. These interventions are systematic and evidence based with research supporting outcomes.

 

This course is appropriate for clinicians with all levels of experience. This course is appropriate for the following clinicians working with children with feeding disorders: OT, COTA, SLP, RD, RN, CSW, Psychologists.
