The 2 day courses will introduce the latest innovations to help clinical professionals address complex pediatric feeding problems. Recent breakthroughs featured in the continuing education course include behavioral therapies that facilitate food acceptance and customizing treatment to unique circumstances. Advancements in the relationship between autism and food refusal are also to be presented.

The positive responses to the 'Mealtime Miseries' course is an indication of the growing demand from the healthcare community for effective and practical pediatric feeding therapy education, according to an overview of the course on the PFI website.

For the PFI, the advancements further modernize its collaborative TR-eat model. Since its inception in 1999, the model has made significant strides in oral motor development and identifying the need for behavioral intervention, among others.

Pediatric feeding therapy helps conditions such as dysphagia and was primarily classified as medical issues prior to the founding of the TR-eat model by Occupational Therapist Carol Elliott and Clinical Psychologist Elizabeth Clawson. The model is credited with integrating their disparate disciplines in effectively treating feeding issues, as noted on the PFI website.

For Carol Elliott OTR/L, the TR-eat model stems from her work in pediatric feeding that started in 1987. She is an occupational therapist and published author. Elliott is a recognized consultant in pediatric feeding evaluation and treatment, according to her biography on the PFI website.

Elizabeth Clawson, Ph.D, is a clinical psychologist, who first partnered with Carol Elliott at the Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU in 1999. She specializes in the integration of behavioral psychology as applied to pediatric feeding difficulties, according to the PFI website.

The live 'Mealtime Miseries' will be held October 4-5 in Houston, October 25-26 in Phoenix and December 2-3 in Louisville.
