From TalkTools President, Luke Blessinger: “With the unprecedented success of our first global online conference, we knew we had identified a need among speech and feeding professionals — to equip them with the knowledge and training from a wide variety of experts, so they can effectively collaborate with other professionals on their client teams. We have applied the same model with this conference and are expecting equally amazing results!”
The agenda includes a diverse group of over 40 world-renowned feeding experts, including Melanie Potock, Diane Bahr, Debra Beckman, Marsha Dunn Klein and Lori Overland. Overland will kick off the conference with a live, virtual keynote address. Agenda Tracks will cover the latest hot topics in feeding:
• Early Developmental Feeding • Oral-Motor and Sensory Techniques • The Picky Eater and Beyond • Managing Dysphagia • Integrated Feeding Approaches
There will also be an exciting add-on pack available as part of the conference package – Orofacial Myology and Dental Considerations in Feeding:
• TOTs (Tethered Oral Tissues) • Airway • Oral Health • Dental Trends
