Details

With the fairly new diagnosis of avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) to the DSM-5, the eating disorders field is publishing new research about the treatment of childhood feeding concerns. At the same time, childhood feeding experts continue to focus their research on responsive feeding approaches to treatment. At times, this research is complementary and, at other times, contradictory. RDNs working in either the pediatric feeding or eating disorders field, or both, must understand the research and best practices for treating childhood feeding difficulties and when referral to other specialists is necessary. This requires an understanding of responsive feeding approaches to childhood feeding difficulties.

In this session, pediatric and eating disorders experts, a speech and language pathologist and a registered dietitian nutritionist, will present the latest research, methods of assessment, and best practices for treating the pediatric patient with feeding difficulties. The session will include presentation of complex cases and coordination of care with a multidisciplinary team.
