Practicing at the Top of Your Profession in Feeding/Swallowing

An SLP asked recently, “What resources, articles, courses, etc. did you find helpful when you were first learning infant feeding? I’m looking for something to give me what I really need.”

“My seminars” I told her, “are designed to do just that. When I created them, and as I update them, I always think ‘What do I wish I had known, both research and clinical information, to practice in peds dysphagia when I started out? What is essential to work toward practicing at the top of our professions?’  My NICU and Pediatric as well as Advanced seminars, my Peds/ Neonatal Video Swallow Studies and Cue Based seminars are filled with everything I want to pass along. As I learn from colleagues and attendees at my courses, I weave that in as well. Sometimes I almost run out of time!

I will always offer you a welcoming environment that fosters interaction and learning along with each other.
