What others are saying:
As an occupational therapist, it is very difficult to find a course that teaches several different methods of evaluation and treatment for feeding and swallowing disorders. Dr. Arvedson did an amazing job brining different presentation methods to offer ways to evaluate and treat feeding disorders. I would recommend this course to any therapist who is interested in learning about feeding and swallowing difficulties. Shahnoor Dharamsi, OT
