Parent Talk: Feeding
November 2, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
MeBe San Diego in collaboration with GiGi’s playhouse is excited to host this informational session regarding pediatric feeding disorders.
A feeding disorder is diagnosed when a child consistently refuses or is unable to eat sufficient quantities or varieties of food, resulting in inadequate caloric or nutritional intake. Research has shown that feeding disorders occur in as many as 35% of typically developing children and 80% of children diagnosed with developmental disabilities. During this event, we will be teaching you how medical, oral-motor, and behavioral factors could all be contributing to your child’s feeding difficulties. We will also help you to understand when treatment is necessary and will review behavioral treatment strategies, sensory focused treatment strategies, and a combination of these treatment strategies to fit your child’s individual needs. Finally, we will teach you how to get started with the basics to help make mealtimes more successful at home. A Spanish translator will be present to assist within the presentations.
