Video

Course Description

Transitioning to a solid diet is an important milestone in a child's journey. Learning mastication and bolus control for a child with a pediatric feeding disorder is dependent on the experience of the practitioner, the input and compliance of the family with recommendations, and the availability of the right foods to safely, effectively, and confidently advance a child’s diet. This course is designed to create a solid foundation for clinicians on the intricacy of transitional foods. Join Michelle Dawson, MS CCC-SLP, CLC, of “First Bite,” a pediatric speech therapy podcast, and Reva Barewal, DDS, MS, the prosthodontist turned culinary chef behind Savorease Therapeutic Foods, for two tantalizing hours as they embark on a review of the literature to inform attendees of the texture preferences understood in children with PFD. This presentation will explore the definition of transitional foods and the diversity of behavior under oral conditions, as well as during IDDSI testing. Case studies will be presented to demonstrate the timing of the use of transitional foods and their therapeutic value. The best part: clinical recommendations will be provided on how to functionally integrate information into your clinical pediatric practice.


All 1-3 hour courses included for $89 / Year
