Teaching Kids to Eat: Using Baby Led Weaning & Motor Learning Theory

Date and Time: Sun, November 5, 2017, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM PST

Location - Abbott & Burkhart Therapy


Are your clients and families struggling with the transition from breast or bottle feeding to eating solids? Working with clients stuck on purees, unable to move on to harder chewables? Concerned about chocking and how to help your clients progress in a safer manner? This 7-hour class for occupational therapists will introduce the clinician to the current research and recommendations regarding solid food feeding and learning to chew. The class will focus on traditional and alternative methods of introducing solids, as well as the reasoning behind choosing one approach over another. By applying principles of sensory and oral motor development as well as motor learning theory, clinicians will develop a strong understanding of safe, yet effective solid food introduction in both typical and atypical populations for enhanced therapy outcomes.
