This online course is an introduction to infant eating, feeding, and swallowing in the first year of life. Clinicians will learn about the impact of preterm birth and medical conditions on the development of eating, feeding, swallowing, and behavioural organization. Clinicians will have opportunities for clinical application of theoretic content. For example, they will develop a plan for assessing oral feeding and swallowing skills for the infant from birth through one year and for therapeutic interventions used to support development of eating, feeding and swallowing skills within a nurturing feeding relationship.
