ERI has partnered with faculty members Dana Kizer, OT and Anais Villaluna, SLP to offer a new CEU course to help therapists bridge the gap when it comes to problem solving complex feeding and swallowing cases. The BRIDGE Approach: Critical Thinking in the Management of Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Disorders will be offered as a live webinar on March 18 and 19, 2023. Therapists can earn 11.5 contact hours (1.15 CEUs) upon completing this course.

Instructors Kizer and Villaluna bring extensive experience in assessing and treating feeding and swallowing disorders across the lifespan. In this course, therapists will learn tools and strategies to guide their clinical decision-making process for assessment and treatment of a child with complex feeding issues.

We know that managing pediatric dysphagia can be challenging as practices evolve, new protocols are implemented, and multiple developmental as well as anatomical factors can impact an infant or child’s ability to eat or drink safely and efficiently. By identifying, assessing, and treating the multiple factors causing or contributing to pediatric dysphagia, BRIDGE provides a multifaceted assessment and treatment approach that provides therapists the tools to think critically when working through difficult cases.

 Over the course of this two-day webinar, therapists will be given strategies to implement immediately when working with children with dysphagia as well as discuss questions, cases, and concerns with the presenters in real-time.

Registration is now open! The registration page offers more information as well as a detailed agenda. If you have any questions, please contact ERI at or call 800-487-6530.
