Description

Mealtime is often difficult when someone in the family has a neurological or developmental challenge. Eating and swallowing are connected not only to motor aspects of the mouth, but also to the relationship between the organization of movements and breathing, and their coordination. This workshop deals with the connection between hunger, eating and the motor aspects of the mouth. We will learn through developmental movement exploration, observation and diagnosis skills, live demonstration of mother and baby, and hands-on work.
