What Are Pediatric Feeding Courses for Therapists?

Feeding is one of the most complex tasks an infant will complete in the first few weeks of life. A single swallow requires muscles and cranial nerves to work together to move food and liquid through the body. When one or more elements are not in alignment, it can induce a pediatric feeding disorder, which may cause a child or infant to experience difficulty eating or drinking. 

For children with a pediatric feeding disorder, every piece of food can be a challenge, leading to decreased nutrition levels and negative impacts on their growth and development. ERI offers pediatric feeding courses that use evidence-based practices to give therapists the knowledge to evaluate and treat infants and children who show signs of a pediatric feeding disorder.
