Play with Your Food: An Integrative Approach to the Most Difficult Feeding Challenges (May 29 - 30, 2020)
Play with Your Food: An Integrative Approach to the Most Difficult Feeding Challenges is organized by Education Resources, Inc. (ERI) and will be held from May 29 - 30, 2020 at RiverKids Pediatric Home Health, Pearland, Texas, United States of America.
Do you have a caseload full of children who refuse to eat because of sensory challenges, food sensitivities, behaviors, or even no apparent reason? This course addresses the growing problem of food refusals and nutritional deficiencies from a revolutionary new perspective and focuses on self-regulation, socio-cultural, and emotional perspectives while incorporating conventional nutrition, oral-motor skills, sensory processing and behavioral techniques. Susan’s highly successful, integrative approach integrates body, mind and spirit and uses play, the primary occupation of childhood, as a focal point to improve outcomes and plot a course to happier and healthier mealtimes. The seminar format involves extensive case problem solving and participants will apply the provided tools to their own clients. These tools include: structured observations of play and mealtime behaviors; food journals for nutrition, sensory, and food sensitivities; functional, measurable performance objectives aligned with academic goals; and play based mealtime implementation strategies.
