Linking Play and Self-Regulation to Mealtime Success
Friday, November 4, 2016


P.G. Chambers School

This course explores the growing problem of food refusals and nutritional deficiencies from a revolutionary new perspective that addresses self-regulation, socio-cultural, and emotional perspectives while incorporating conventional nutrition, oral-motor skills, sensory processing and behavioral techniques. Medical conditions affected by food refusals include obesity, diabetes, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, and learning disabilities. Participants bring in case-studies from their own practices, applying Susan’s integrative framework which uses play, the primary occupation of childhood, as a focal point for assessing client needs and preparing intervention plans. The seminar format provides ample time to discuss a variety of cases. Participants take away useful tools they can apply immediately in everyday practice. These include: structured observations of play and mealtime behaviors to determine developmental readiness; food journals for determining individual nutritional, sensory and food sensitivity issues; writing functional, measureable play and mealtime goals for school-based interventions that align with Common Core academic standards; and strategies for implementing related performance objectives.
