Oral Motor, Feeding/Swallowing, and Respiratory Coordination Function in Children with Neuromuscular Involvement

Friday, March 16 – Sunday, March 18, 2018
Instructor: Rona Alexander, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S, C/NDT

This 3-day workshop (17.25 contact hours) will focus on what members of a multidisciplinary team need to
know about the assessment and treatment of infants and children with neuromuscular impairments and
challenges to their oral motor, feeding/swallowing, and respiratory coordination function. Special emphasis
will be placed on understanding a variety of areas that may be influencing a child’s feeding and swallowing
function; the impact that body alignment, active postural control, and sensory factors have on oralpharyngeal
function; and suggestions for the incorporation of strategies focusing on these areas into
treatment programming. Treatment planning and strategies to improve cheeks/lips, tongue, jaw, and rib
cage/respiratory function will be discussed. Audiovisual materials and a patient demonstration session will
be used to provide problem-solving experiences to assist participants in integrating information.
