Danielle and Nicole will discuss the required skills, behaviors and social factors for making mealtime fun. From an OT standpoint, Danielle will touch on the sensory and postural components of feeding while Nicole will dig deep into the mechanical skills necessary for feeding. There will be a question and answer segment at the end of the seminar to help problem solve challenging situations and to discuss concerns relating to mealtime success. Register online.
