Understanding Picky Eating: Getting Past the "Ick, I Don't Want That" (On Demand Webinar)
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
This webinar examines the continuum of picky eating and explores reasons why children become “picky” across several developmental domains. The speaker focuses on the oral motor and sensory skills necessary for transitioning from liquids to puree, meltable, and eventually textured table foods within the first year of life. The webinar presents strategies to enable SLPs to identify and treat skill deficits and ultimately decrease the likelihood of a child being labelled as having a “behavioral feeding disorder.”
You will be able to:
- discuss the oral motor and sensory behaviors that need to be assessed during a feeding evaluation with families and colleagues
- list skill deficits that are correlated with eating only liquids, purees, meltable foods, and textured foods
- list types of foods a child would likely prefer or reject based upon their skill deficits
