Sensory-Based Feeding: Part 1—How to overcome tactile, interoceptive, proprioceptive, and vestibular factors impacting feeding

Eating can be a very challenging task for children with sensory processing difficulties and tweezing out each area of need can be just as challenging for therapists and parents! This 2-hour webinar allows you to pinpoint how tactile, interoceptive, proprioceptive, and vestibular factors can impact feeding. Tips and tricks on implementing practical strategies to address each of these areas are included, so children on your caseload can start improving right away. This course includes case studies and time for answering appropriate questions.
