A Sensorimotor Approach to Feeding Problems and Failure to
55 minutes. V25P: $95
CLICK ON THIS THUMBNAIL IMAGE TO VIEW A FULL SIZE VIDEO CAPTURE. This video demonstrates the integration of sensorimotor treatment into a home-based feeding program for a toddler with diagnoses of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Failure to Thrive. The process of task analysis and problem-solving led to facilitation of appropriate positioning, utensils, foods, and movement patterns which resulted in decreased oral sensitivity, a greater variety of solid foods, and independence in all self-feeding skills.
Development of Self-Feeding in the Normal Child
30 minutes. V19P: $90
CLICK ON THIS THUMBNAIL IMAGE TO VIEW A FULL SIZE VIDEO CAPTURE. This video presents the prerequisites for self-feeding during the first year of life, and developmental sequences of independent feeding behaviors during the second year, emphasizing the transition from finger feeding to utensil use. Major topics include drinking (from bottle to cup to straw), finger feeding, spoon and fork use, and mealtime social skills.
Self-Feeding in the Child with Special Needs
55 minutes. V20P: $95
CLICK ON THIS THUMBNAIL IMAGE TO VIEW A FULL SIZE VIDEO CAPTURE. This video demonstrates procedures for informal observational evaluation of self-feeding in a school-aged child with cerebral palsy and developmental delays, emphasizing the transition from finger feeding to utensil use. Task analysis, discussion, and problem-solving by parents, child, and therapist are interwoven with recommendations for intervention and demonstration of techniques to facilitate more appropriate positioning and movements patterns.
Prehension Components of Independent Feeding: From Assessment to
Treatment to Function (1985)
30 minutes. V12P: $90
This video illustrates how the Erhardt Developmental Prehension Assessment (EDPA) is used to determine missing components of hand skills needed for functional activities such as feeding; the relationship of fine motor, gross motor, oral-motor, visual, and cognitive development; and methods of integrating treatment into a home program. A school-aged child with cerebral palsy begins independent feeding as all family members become involved.
The Consultant's Role in Evaluation and Treatment of
Developmental Eating Dysfunction (1986)
30 minutes. V15P: $90
This video illustrates the therapist's role as consultant to families with children who have eating problems. A preschool child with cerebral palsy is observed being fed by her mother, as a developmental approach is used to analyze positioning, feeding methods, oral reflexes, and developmental behaviors. Techniques to facilitate more appropriate feeding methods and positive interaction are then discussed and demonstrated by the therapist.
