Children who display challenging behaviors often receive services from a wide range of professionals. In order for intervention services to be the most effective, collaboration between service providers is essential. However, differences in professional practice approaches can make inter-disciplinary collaboration difficult. This course discusses the necessary components of effective collaboration and explores the collaborative practices of occupational therapy and behavior analysis practitioners. Nationally known and respected practitioners from each profession present their unique perspectives regarding a case example of a child with challenging behavior and collaborate to assess the behavior and develop an intervention plan.

For therapists who provide services to people living with various forms of dementia, awareness regarding differential diagnoses in order to tailor condition management and interventions is becoming more and more vital. Current understanding is that labeling someone as simply having a syndrome of “dementia” or mislabeling a condition as Alzheimer's, when it is not, in the early stages of the condition is ineffective and inadequate for best quality care and treatment planning. This session is designed to provide a description and definition of the various forms of dementia in the earlier stages. We will revisit and discuss the five role-plays from the previous part of this course that will confirm or change the predictions of type of dementia based on the interaction and performance on the screening tools.

This is part three of a three part series covering dementias. Be sure to watch:
Part One: Differentiating Dementias: Alzheimer's, Vascular, and Lewy Body
Part Two: Differentiating Dementias: Frontal, Temporal and More

Developmental Foundations for Children with Feeding & Eating Problems

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Feeding, eating, and swallowing are complex processes that require the physiological function of body systems and structures as a foundation for the observable, goal-directed actions that emerge with development. This introductory course reviews the body structures and functions required for feeding, eating, and swallowing and discusses their relationship with typical developmental milestones expected from birth through early childhood. Dr. Jennifer Pitonyak uses specific examples to illustrate the development of necessary performance skills for feeding and eating. This course is part of an introductory series on occupation-based approaches to intervention for children with feeding and eating difficulties.
