Webinar: Pediatric Feeding Disorders Unveiled: A Roadmap to Coordinated Care
This webinar took place on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, from 2-3:30 p.m. ET.
Pediatric Feeding Disorder (PFD) affects 1 in 37 children and consists of four domains: medical, nutrition, feeding skills, and psychosocial. Assessment and treatment of PFD requires a coordinated care model with multiple professionals working together alongside the child and their caregivers. Due to this, it is important for all medical and therapy professionals to understand the diagnosis of PFD and the obstacles many families face.
Join Dena Berg, MS, CCC-SLP, Hana Eichele, MOT OTR/L, and Yaffi Lvova, RDN, on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, from 2-3:30 p.m. ET, as they discuss Pediatric Feeding Disorder from assessment to treatment across multiple disciplines. Participants will learn about each domain of PFD, as well as treatment, assessment, and home-care planning. In addition, participants will analyze and discuss case studies of children with PFD in each domain to identify and implement the referral process and individual needs of their clients.
After completing this activity, nutrition professionals will better be able to:
- Identify the four domains of Pediatric Feeding Disorder (PFD) and the family-centered treatment approaches for them.
- Recognize the differences in referral needs for children with PFD across each domain.
- Describe how PFD can affect the family.
- Utilize a responsive approach to create an individualized treatment plan for a child with PFD.
- Explain the strategies multidisciplinary teams can use to collaboratively treat children with PFD.
