Course Description

Get Permission is a trust-based approach to pediatric feeding intervention. In this hybrid version of this course Marsha and Karen will provide a comprehensive overview of feeding tubes using the Get Permission framework. Content will include an introduction to the mechanics of feeding tubes, why a child may receive a feeding tube, and how feeding tubes can be used to support a child’s growth. There will be a special emphasis on helping course participants learn how feeding tubes can be used to support the relationship between parents and their children. Participants will learn how feeding tubes can be used to promote emotional well-being of parents and support a child’s mealtime participation. A significant portion of the course will be devoted to helping participants develop clinical reasoning skills to identify when a child may be ready to transition off of a feeding tube and begin oral eating. Additional topics will include: The benefits of a homemade blended diet, strategic use of hunger, oral-motor skill acquisition, and application of Get Permission strategies for treatment success. Video examples and real-life case studies will be used to help participants apply Get Permission principles to their own practice. This workshop is filled with practical mealtime and treatment suggestions.

I felt that this course was a great compliment to the Get Permission Approach. I liked having that under my belt before doing this one so that some of the concepts weren't as new and I could focus on what I needed to specific to kids on my caseload. I would highly recommend this course to other clinicians.
