Abstract

Providers addressing childhood feeding problems typically delivered this therapy in the home, school, or clinic and almost always worked "hands-on" with the child either teaching skills to the child or modeling the intervention for a caregiver. This form of service delivery is often not possible now due to the global pandemic and, ready or not, telehealth has been thrust upon us as a method of service delivery. While telehealth has been used to address childhood feeding problems, its use has not been widespread. This webinar will describe the use of telehealth for the delivery of feeding therapy. Dr. Williams will review his own experiences with moving to telehealth and the delivery by telehealth of a feeding program. Dr. Williams will review the literature on telehealth and feeding, provide case studies of patients he has served via telehealth, and discuss methods of improving the effectiveness of your telehealth service delivery.

Target Audience: Professionals for whom the topic is within their scope of practice. We welcome students and others who are also interested in the topic to join us.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to identify two benefits of telehealth.
  • Participants will able to identify the two actions that should occur prior to a telehealth appointment.
  • Participants will be able to identify two pre-intervention considerations for delivering telehealth delivery of feeding therapy.
