Transitioning Non-Oral to Oral Feeding


Transition from non-oral to oral feeding begins the moment the tube is placed. This intermediate-level course will present a framework for providing feeding intervention to children to support full or partial transition to oral feeding.

Our interdisciplinary team addresses how to maintain good nutritional status while balancing social emotional, nutritional, motor, sensory, developmental and anatomical considerations. Video case studies, lecture and discussion will be used to illustrate practical solutions to complex challenges. 

This course is intended for Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Pathologists, Registered Dietitians, Registered Nurses and any professionals involved in feeding intervention.
