Focused on bottle feeding strategies, this course provides immediately applicable practical information to help medical, speech language , early interventionists, occupational, physical therapy professionals to better identify and treat the factors that impact successful oral feeding of preterm and medically complex term infants. Utilizing a multidisciplinary approach— both in the NICU and after discharge to early intervention through the first six months—the course emphasizes strategies to facilitate infant abilities and develop caregiver feeding skills. Breastfeeding is emphasized as the best feeding method for infants, with some strategies to support breastfeeding as well. The objective is to identify feeding readiness and provide intervention strategies from a framework of normal development. A holistic approach integrating the medical complexity of these infants is emphasized, using the BROSS approach and the SOFFI Method.
