Event description

Description

We are pleased to announce that The Centre have commissioned the delivery of the Lady Cilento Paediatric Feeding Workshop to support sector capability to work with children with disabilities who experience feeding difficulties.

This workshop is an introductory workshop for those new to working in the area of paediatric feeding. The learning objects are:

  • To gain an overview of normal feeding development
  • To gain knowledge of principles of assessment and management of infants and children presenting with feeding and swallowing difficulties.
  • To gain knowledge of theoretical frameworks underpinning approaches to assessment and management
  • To gain knowledge of nutritional issues and alternative feeding
  • To gain knowledge of specific treatment techniques for children presenting with feeding and swallowing difficulties.
  • To gain competence in applying assessment and treatment principles and case management of paediatric dysphagia populations with varying aetiologies.

The workshop will incorporate both theory and practical activities over the course of the workshop.

This training is only available for Speech Pathologists. Those Speech Pathologists who wish to register must:

  • be a graduated SLP who is currently working with children with feeding difficulties or in the process of developing skills to do this work
  • Be registered through HCWA, Better Start and/or intending to register to deliver early intervention or therapeutic supports through NDIS. This registration must be within Queensland and could be individually or through a practice/NGO.
  • Must be able to participate in the full workshop.

The Centre will be requesting evidence of the above upon registration.

Please note:

  • Ticket allocations are according to the order in which people register through Eventbrite.
  • We are unable to accept bulk registrations from a practice or NGO. Each interested Speech Pathologist must purchase a ticket individually through Eventbrite. We are also unable to hold tickets for individuals so we would encourage interested participants to register as soon as possible.
  • We have previously had participants attend training who had not registered through Eventbrite. The Centre generates participant lists according to ticket purchases through this platform. To ensure attendance at the event, you must have confirmation from Eventbrite that you were allocated a ticket. The Centre reserves the right to refuse entry to those who attend the event but do not appear on the allocated ticket report that is generated by Eventbrite.
