Sensory-Based Feeding: Part 2—How to Overcome Visual, Auditory, Olfactory, and Gustatory Factors Impacting Feeding

Eating can be a challenging task for children with sensory processing difficulties and tweezing out the areas of need can be just as challenging for therapists and parents! This 2-hour webinar allows you to pinpoint how visual, auditory, olfactory, and gustatory factors can impact feeding. Tips and tricks on implementing practical strategies to address each of these areas are included, so toddlers through elementary school aged children on your caseload can start improving right away. This course includes case studies and a Q&A period.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Select appropriate nonfood- and food-based visual activities to help children with visual sensitivities eat a wider variety of food shapes and colors.
  2. Choose specific cups that help ease transition from bottle to cup.
  3. Distinguish between signs indicating a child is sensitive to smells vs. flavors and how to improve the tolerance of new smells and flavors.
  4. Recognize symptoms indicating children may be under-responsive to gustatory input and select foods they may easily tolerate.
  5. Identify how your volume and cadence of speech helps children who are over- and under-responsive to auditory input have more success at meals.
