11 The family journey from enteral to oral feeding, a whole team approach
The speakers are Emily Lively, a Speech Pathologist, and Lynly Mader, an Infant Mental Health Specialist and Occupational Therapist from Adelaide, Australia.  They will be sharing with us their expertise on applying a family-centred, multidisciplinary mealtime approach to weaning, promoting child autonomy and self-initiation for the child to learn to eat.  They work closely with children with backgrounds including chromosomal; gastrointestinal; developmental; neurological and no apparent reasons for  faltering growth will be presented. They have developed the Lively Eaters intensive feeding program in Adelaide and have presented it in various conferences like ASCIA, ASMR and Speech Pathology Australia. There will  be case studies, including extensive video footage showing the different stages of the program being implemented from first involvement with a family to the end of a wean. Engagement of families and the underlying philosophies around this – how to engage families with the process to facilitate change within the home environment will be shared.
