Play with your food: An Integrative Approach to the Most Difficult Feeding Challenges
March 9 @ 8:00 AM - March 10 @ 5:00 PM| $435
This 2 day course, presented by Susan Roberts, MDiv, OTR/L, 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. Roberts’ 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.
This course is designed for OTs, PTs and Assistants, SLPs, Registered Dieticians, and Special Educators. It meets the criteria for 13 contact hours.
