Participant Requirements for the course: In order to maximize the learning experience during lab time, each participant needs to bring a soft body doll. The ideal size would be 10-15”, but any soft body doll will work.
This dynamic intermediate-advanced course will elucidate the cardiopulmonary implications for the premature or medically-complex infant as related to physiological stability, evolving motor control, sensory stability, and transition to oral motor skills that support feeding. Participants will learn to facilitate the infant’s ability to cough, produce audible phonation, develop oral motor skills, and improve swallowing skills, as well as gestation-age appropriate positioning and handling to support gross motor skills required for postural stability.
