REFERENCES for ASHA 2016: Provision of Feeding Intervention in the Context of Responsive Feeding

Jenny presented at the National American Speech Language and Hearing Convention (ASHA) this week, along with the clinical coordinator of the Tube Weaning Program, Heidi Moreland, SLP at Spectrum Pediatrics. There were extensive references included in their presentation and this research supports our work with responsive feeding and creating a healthy relationship with food for new and fragile eaters.  We thought others might find these references to be helpful as well. If you are interested in learning more about the book or responsive feeding therapy you can look here and if you want to know more about the intensive tube weaning program at Spectrum Pediatrics check out their post here.
