In this CEU, we will share information on what is required to complete an effective and comprehensive feeding evaluation for children seen in pediatric home health.  Participants will learn how to organize an evaluation and gain understanding of how to review medical history and how that relates to current skills. The course will discuss questions to ask of families to determine which feeding protocol is most appropriate and what foods to have prepared.  They will gain understanding of oral motor structures and the roles they play in functional feeding and possible pharyngeal deficits that can be noted at bedside. Information will be included to increase understanding of sensory needs and how they relate to functional skill deficits. We will also look at how trauma can affect feeding and change the way children engage with food.


  1. Participants will be able to identify the appropriate feeding flock or alternative protocol based on initial conversation with a caregiver.
  2. Participants will be able to identify at minimum 5 oral structures and their function in supporting feeding
  3. Participants will be able to name what each reflex is and understand when it is integrated.
  4. Participants will be able to list at least 3 examples of how sensory responses can impact feeding including how they could be affected by oral and pharyngeal deficits
  5. Participants will be able to state why trauma informed care is required and how the adrenal and limbic response effects feeding.
