Join Catherine Shaker in Boston: Deep Dives and Practice-Changing Essentials


Intellectual curiosity is known as one of the hallmarks of a lifelong learner. The intellectually curious person has a deep and persistent desire to know and seeks answers to those essential “why” questions that underpin our “differential” in swallowing and feeding.  Then you peel back the layers to take a deep dive, think critically, then map key interventions. And that changes everything…..for your pediatric patients …and for you!

Are you a lifelong learner? Then an exceptional learning experience is waiting for you in October in Boston at Boston Medical Center. A welcoming environment that fosters interaction and learning along with each other.

  • Pediatric Swallowing and Feeding: The Essentials:  Oct 13-14
  • Pediatric Video Swallow Studies: Physiology to Analysis:  Oct 15
  • Advanced Infant/Pediatric Dysphagia: Problem-Solving Complex Patients and Practice Issues:  Oct 16-17

What your colleagues are saying:

“So informative but also fun. A deep dive into a blend of the art and science of what we do, and how to use objective data to be critical thinkers.” Megan, SLP

“Thanks for being such a spark to help me keep learning! I learned more in two hours than I did in four days at a different conference. Amazing to have 20+ pages of current references that were woven into our discussions. Michaela, SLP

“I came away with so many strategies and a better understanding of what to look for when working with a child. Really helped me look at the whole picture”. Priscilla, OTR

“Your course is a huge bang for my buck! Honestly invaluable. Your real-life experiences helped apply the research and knowledge you shared. Thanks for referencing so many other excellent professionals working in the field. Really filled in the blanks for me.” Kerry, SLP

“Even for someone like me who doesn’t do VFSS, I learned so much about the biomechanics of the pediatric swallow that now can inform my treatment. Leaving with excitement and energy to apply this knowledge!” Leana, SLP

Catherine’s experiences and knowledge base are priceless. Being able to hear her perspective on certain topics and/or ideas is a breath of fresh air. Organized, easy to understand, and offered multiple balanced perspectives” Hannah, SLP
