When children don’t eat well, there can be multiple adverse consequences on a child’s health and development.
However, it can be challenging as a clinician to determine which children are the ones most likely to suffer the negative impacts from picky eating. This session will use the most current research to operationally define who is a Picky Eater versus a child who may have an actual Feeding or Eating Disorder.
Dr. Kay Toomey, pediatric expert in eating and feeding, reviews the diagnostic criteria for Pediatric Feeding Disorder (PFD) and Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), and then shares her Differential Diagnosis Decision Tree to give practitioners clear guidelines for intervention. The Decision Tree will be applied to case studies to practice accurate diagnosis with global recommendations offered for differential treatment as based on each type of diagnosis.
Don’t miss this opportunity to increase your confidence and ability in accurately diagnosing picky eaters, children with a PFD or those with ARFID.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing and passing the on-line post-test evaluation).
