Challenges with infants and children demonstrating complex swallowing and feeding disorders are addressed in a holistic evidence-based framework that considers interrelating systems. Populations range from newborn infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) through children in school based & rehabilitation settings. Problem solving/intervention will be addressed through lecture, videos, and case analyses. Functional outcomes are emphasized through targeted intervention strategies based on sensorimotor learning principles and consideration of neural plasticity. Problem areas include: airway (e.g., laryngomalacia, laryngeal cleft, vocal fold paralysis, tracheostomy/ventilator); GI tract (e.g., gastroesophageal reflux, eosinophilic esophagitis); nutrition/hydration; advancing feeding in NICU and beyond to include tongue & lip tie; tube feeding & weaning; barriers to oral feeding & intervention strategies with; picky/finicky eaters. Discussions will include the urgent need for specific measurable outcomes and pros/cons for varied frequency and intensity of direct and indirect interventions/therapies.

Course Description: Learn to evaluate infant feeding performance and provide evidence-supported interventions to maximize infants’ outcomes. We’ll discuss diagnostic tools for bedside evaluation, cervical auscultation, modified barium swallow studies and specific medical comorbidities seen in the NICU setting and how these influence the therapy pathway. In addition, we’ll review the International Dysphagia Diet Standardization Initiative and its impact on infant oral feeding. The developmental specialists’ role in oral motor assessment and interventions to support infant feeding in the NICU will be discussed including how to support infants’ care team members in providing best practice care. This course will include lecture, small group discussion, and clinical scenarios with video to enhance observation skills of attendees.
