This 3-hour CE workshop will teach participants how SLPs and BCBAs can work together to assess and treat both oral motor skill deficits and inappropriate mealtime behavior across a range of pediatric feeding disorders. Interventions for the following problems will be described: food selectivity, packing, chewing, liquid avoidance, choking phobias, rapid eating, dysphagia, tongue thrusts, self-feeding, and tube weaning. Case studies for each feeding problem will be provided along with specific examples of how SLPs and BCBAs can collaborate to develop individualized interventions to address both skill deficits and inappropriate mealtime behavior exhibited by those with feeding problems. This LIVE webinar will be held on September 24, 2021 at 11 am - 2 pm ET. Please read the product page carefully for details.

OVERALL DESCRIPTION:

Pediatric feeding problems are complex and often require a multi-disciplinary approach to assessment and treatment. The Behavioral InTEgrated with Speech approach, known as BITES®, focuses specifically on how Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and speech-language pathologists (SLPS) can work together to assess feeding problems and develop interventions for them. To learn more about BITES®, please visit their website: https://bitesfeedingtherapy.com

With over 30 years of combined experience in the field of pediatric feeding disorders, Dr. Laura Seiverling, Psychologist and BCBA-D, and Elise Jusko, CCC-SLP, will draw from their own experiences working on a multidisciplinary feeding team together and will provide an overview of how cross-discipline collaboration between SLPs and BCBAs can look when it comes to both assessment and treatment of various pediatric feeding disorders.

OBJECTIVES:

  1. Participants will learn how to take a number of factors into account when developing a behavioral feeding intervention.  These factors include considering the client’s oral motor skills, medical status, pre-treatment diet variety, the severity of the client’s inappropriate mealtime behavior. 
  2. Participants will learn how to develop food selectivity interventions with and without the use of escape extinction.
  3. Participants will be able to list the specific skills often needed to be taught when teaching a client to how to chew. 
  4. Participants will be able to identify the interventions used to address packing (i.e., holding food in the mouth for protracted durations) related to avoidance/refusal behavior and packing related to inadequate oral motor skills. 
  5. Participants will learn how various types of prompting procedures (i.e., least-to-most, most-to-least, and graduated guidance) can be implemented in a self-feeding intervention.   
  6. Participants will learn how SLPs and BCBAs can work together to prepare a client for an instrumental swallow evaluation.
