A Collaborative Intervention Approach for Pediatric Feeding Disorders

Presenters:

Kaitlyn Martin, MA, BCBA

Cassaundra N. Miller, MS, CCC/SLP

Dr. Susannah Poe, EdD, BCBA-D

The prevalence of feeding difficulties in children with developmental disabilities is extremely high.  To ensure the use of best practice, we must not only advance our knowledge in behavioral feeding intervention but also collaborate with other disciplines.  This course will be an overview of collaboration strategies for behavior analysists and speech language pathologists.   We will outline developmental feeding milestones, discuss the development of intervention plans, review case studies, and expand on the importance of evidence-based practice through analysis of current research texts.
