Description

For most, the ability to eat with peers in the school cafeteria, or participate in family dinners is a given. However, a significant subset of the population is unable to safely and independently participate in communal mealtime due to oropharyngeal dysphagia.

It is crucial that you as a clinician be knowledgeable and comfortable with the intricacies of your young patients’ conditions in order to maximize the effectiveness of treatment. This requires a detailed understanding of the brain-mouth-gut connection and the impact common pediatric disorders have on it. Ultimately, it is our goal as clinicians to establish these connections, and to help our patients live up to their fullest potential.

This recording is designed to educate attendees on the ins and outs of the brain-mouth-gut connection, what leads to breakdowns in this system, and how these breakdowns can result in oropharyngeal dysphagia.

Those who watch will participate in numerous breakout hands-on activities, view videos of functional based treatment, and hear raw testimonials from the parents of medically fragile children with oropharyngeal dysphagia. This multifaceted approach is designed to equip attendees with numerous take home interventions unique to the needs of their medically fragile and complex pediatric patients from birth into early childhood.
