Date: Fri, Mar 2nd, 2018
Time: 5:15 PM - 6:15 PM

Description:

Focusing on the big picture requires clinicians to consider all variables that could be contributing to a child’s feeding and/or swallowing disorder. Because many children may have a combination of concurrent or resolved physiological and/or behavioral components contributing to feeding/swallowing disorders, an interdisciplinary team is essential in providing effective treatment.
