      Hi Linda, this course is not coming to Minnesota this year, but I will certainly pass your comment to our course coordinator. These are our current dates and venues:

      Thank you for your comment Linda

    I work in a school for students with autism and severe behaviors. The ages range from 3-22 years old. I also work under a consult model and do a lot of teacher trainings so that carry over can be done within the classrooms. Would the interventions in this course be able to be directed towards some of my older students and also be implemented under a consul model?

    Let me know. Thanks!

  3. Hi Briana,
    Thank you for your inquiry regarding my pediatric feeding course: AEIOU: A Systematic Approach to Pediatric Feeding. While the course is more geared toward young children (it would definitely address the needs of your students under 6 years of age), the content and material can certainly be adapted for older students as well. We discuss treatment for students with autism, and there is also a good amount of information regarding caregiver (and in your case- teachers/staff) training for the purposes of carryover. It would be great to have you in my course. I welcome any more specific questions you may have. You can contact me directly: feedourchildren@verizon.net
    Best,
    Nina Ayd Johanson, MA, MS, CCC-SLP

    Nina’s course sounds wonderful! I would be so interested in a course in the Minneapolis or Denver area. I work in South Dakota and it is difficult to find a good course that our staff can afford to travel to. Would Nina happen to be planning on teaching her course out here in the next year or so?

    Thanks so much!
