Babble & Munch – Speech Pathology

Highlights:

Medical, developmental, nutritional, social or emotional factors can all contribute to feeding problems. Through a comprehensive assessment, Babble & Munch Speech Pathology works to understand the root of the feeding difficulty and any areas that may be contributing to feeding or swallowing issues. An individualised treatment plan is then developed and implemented in partnership with the family and any other health professionals involved.

Infant Feeding Foundations Workshop – Virtual

The Infant Feeding Foundations Workshop (IFFW) for health professionals has been running around Australia for the past 4 years, with an online and on-demand version developed late 2020. The course has been organised into four online modules of approximately 1.5 hour duration each, plus a 1 hour live Q&A session. The focus is on 0-12 months developmental skills, however the course content is also applicable for working with older children as these skills are the foundation for all feeding skills (e.g. learning to chew). Sections of the course are applicable to varying levels of feeding therapy experience and the course is open to a range of health professionals. Areas covered include:

  • Developmental foundations of feeding and oral development
