About the Event
Many infants and young children (under 24 months) with feeding tubes struggle with oral feeding as well as other developmental delays. This short caregiver-led, hands-on session begins with a brief discussion of possible challenges associated with alternative feeding methods and oral feeding progression before moving into 5 simple NeuroReflex exercises to work on with your child on in real-time. The session closes with a 5-10 minutes Q & A to allow clarification on exercise techniques. After the session, parents are encouraged to do these exercises with their infants and young children on a regular basis to support the regulation of sensory-motor pathways particularly involved in oral functions.
Our session facilitator, Yichien Su, is a feeding specialist, speech-language pathologist, and MNRI instructor with years of feeding experience. We extend our deep gratitude to Yichien for donating her knowledge and expertise to support our global community.
