WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: This conference is designed to help professionals assess and treat children with Feeding Disorders and other Feeding Difficulties using the SOS Approach to Feeding. The Sequential Oral Sensory Approach to Feeding is a transdisciplinary program designed to help professionals understand the multi-factorial complexity of Feeding Problems, as well as how to identify areas needing intervention and how to treat the “whole” child. The focus of the Conference will be assessing and treating infants and children with Feeding Difficulties and Feeding Disorders. This includes “problem feeders” who may have mild to moderate neurological impairments and/or medical disorders, children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, children with motor, oral-motor and/or sensory dysfunction, as well as the “picky eater”.

This workshop is suitable for Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Psychologists, Dietitians, Nutritionists, GPs, early childhood and community nurses, mental health workers, special educators, and other paediatric health professionals.
