Description

After much consideration and with recent circumstances changing so rapidly, Charlotte AHEC will now offer this training as a Live Interactive one-day Zoom event. We are fully committed to ensuring that our attendees, faculty and staff remain safe and well.

Zoom Training Date & Time (Eastern Standard Time):
Friday, October 2, 2020 - 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Eating is an ability that most infants are prepared for as soon as they are born, but for some, it is a daunting task. According to the World Health Organization, there are approximately 15 million preterm babies born each year, and often, these babies have feeding and swallowing difficulties. In addition, there are babies born with a variety of cardiac, respiratory, neurological and structural issues that make feeding very challenging. Early and appropriate skilled intervention is a key factor in establishing feeding success for these babies, and proper training is required to understand the unique challenges of this population from birth through childhood.

This workshop will provide participants with evaluation and treatment strategies for medically complex infants and children. The focus of this course will be the identification of abnormal feeding and swallowing skills, the development of a plan of care to address the deficit areas, and specific treatment ideas and tools for therapy.

In order for participants to receive credit, they must attend the workshop for the full day (No partial credit will be given).

Featuring Expert Faculty from the Atrium Health Learning Academy:
Leonia "Lee" Walker, MS, CCC-SLP
Virginia "Ginnie" Bogar, MA, CCC-SLP
