9:10 am EST • 8:10 am CST • 7:10 am MST• 6:10 am PST (US)
This 2-day webinar has been designed for professionals who have a foundation of knowledge in the components of typical and atypical oral motor, oral sensory, feeding/swallowing, respiratory, and general movement development and their interrelationship. Primary emphasis will be placed on the development of appropriate intervention programming for infants and children with neuromuscular involvement who exhibit problems in oral, pharyngeal, feeding, swallowing, phonatory, and respiratory coordination function. Strategies to improve oral motor, oral sensory, pharyngeal, rib cage, and respiratory musculature activity will be discussed as they relate to findings obtained during a comprehensive clinical assessment. Differences between intervention strategies appropriate for direct treatment and for carryover activities such as mealtime feeding will be delineated.
