Laura Seiverling, PhD, BCBA, LP
Date: Thursday, July 13, 2017 Time: 6:00-9:00 pm eastern Recording Information: ABACAccess5
While selective eating is the most commonly reported feeding problem in children, a number of children exhibit other types of feeding problems. These problems include the inability to chew, packing (i.e. taking longer than 30 seconds to chew and swallow), inability or refusal to self-feed, rapid eating, liquid avoidance, rumination, and choking phobias. There is an emerging literature for how to treat these more complex feeding problems in children. In this workshop, participants will learn how to define these complex feeding problems in children, identify medical and environmental factors associated with the development of these feeding problems, and learn evidence-based interventions for treating them.
After attending this event:
- Participants will be able to define and describe complex feeding problems of chewing, packing, self-feeding, rapid eating, liquid avoidance, rumination, and choking phobias.
- Participants will be able to identify various factors (i.e. medical and environmental) associated with the development of these feeding problems.
- Participants will be able to describe various types of evidence-based behavioral interventions for treating complex feeding problems in children.
