Parenting in the Kitchen: Home Strategies for Families in Feeding Therapy

Location: Milestone Therapy, 370 W 80th Pl, Merrillville IN 46410

Please note: In order to allow a larger audience to learn from Melanie, we will be providing chairs, but not tables in the room. Please feel free to bring a clipboard or other writing surface if you’d like to take notes while seated.

Course Description: This seminar connects professionals with tools to parents of children who struggle to eat. Parents of children with feeding disorders face challenges at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time. They often spend the day worried about how much their child will consume, unsure of how to help them learn to eat with more variety and concerned about the child’s nutritional health. Studies have shown that as parental stress increases, positive parent-child interactions decrease. A consistent, positive feeding relationship between parent and child is essential to making progress in feeding therapy. Those who treat children for feeding difficulties want to know how to support both the child and the family with practical, everyday strategies. What approach can parents take to bring joy back to the family table while the child’s feeding development improves over time? A child’s relationship with food influences family dynamics, therefore a family-centered approach to treatment is essential to progress feeding skills.
