Event Overview
Welcome message:

This course delivers clinically relevant assessment and treatment strategies for infants and children with neuromuscular impairments and challenges to their oral motor, feeding/swallowing and respiratory function. A special emphasis is on postural alignment and control as well as on sensory factors that can influence a childs feeding and swallowing. Effective treatment strategies to improve cheeks/lips, tongue, jaw and rib cage function will be highlighted. Participants will engage in extensive clinical problem-solving via group case analysis and patient demonstration sessions.

Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to:

Clinically assess oral motor, feeding/swallowing and respiratory coordination function in infants and young children

Detail the essential components of comprehensive intervention programming for young children with neuromuscular involvement

Implement effective handling and positioning for the modification of oral motor, oral-pharyngeal and respiratory function in intervention programming

Perform treatment strategies to improve the function of the cheeks/lips, tongue, jaw and rib cage in children with neuromuscular involvement
