Course Description:

The goal of this conference is to provide a framework from which to view the
continuum of infant feeding options, including breast and bottle feeding. Focus
will be on comprehensive assessment and management strategies. Participants
will have the opportunity to expand their repertoire of evaluation techniques and
intervention strategies when working with infants who demonstrate feeding or
swallowing dysfunction. It will span from the hospital/NICU environment through
homecare, EI, and outpatients within the first two years of life. This course will
be relevant to physical and occupational therapists, speech and language
pathologists, lactation consultants, nurses and other health professionals who
specialize in or who have an interest in infant feeding disorders.

Course Objectives:

Evaluate specific infant feeding disorders and generate appropriate treatment strategies for their management. 
Summarize the pathophysiologic principles underlying the suck, swallow, breathe triad and how they apply to breast and bottle feeding. 
Describe increased awareness of diagnostic procedures such as video fluoroscopic swallowing study, infant focused feeding assessment, evaluation of gastroesophageal reflux. 
Discuss the interplay between specific diagnoses (such as prematurity, gastroesophageal reflux, cleft lip and palate) and infant feeding dysfunction. 
Select and use treatment strategies to address swallowing dysfunction, aspiration and oral motor dysfunction. 
Synthesize knowledge and utilize best practices in assessment and management of feeding problems in infants
