Training for Speech-Language Pathologists

Cimarron Conference on Communication Disorders


March 29, 2024

Stillwater, OK 74078


The Oklahoma State University Department of Communication Science and Disorders presents their annual Cimarron Conference for Communication Disorders (CCCD). Guest speaker Amanda Foster, M.S., Certified Lactation Counselor, Speech-Language Pathologist/Professor with SOS Approach to Feeding will be presenting “Pediatric Dysphagia Across the Stages and Settings.”
Participants will learn to emphasize the crucial understanding that pediatric dysphagia entails more than just the physical aspect of a child's mouth. It necessitates an acknowledgment of the child as a whole, recognizing the involvement of multiple individuals in the care of pediatric dysphagia and the crucial role of the speech pathologist within that team. Throughout our sessions, our aim is to underscore the significance of this broader perspective for speech pathologists, including the importance of addressing oral motor development in pediatric populations, the pivotal role of a speech pathologist in treating pediatric patients with multiple therapeutic needs, and the profound impact of oral motor dysphagia across various environments. Additionally, we will delve into the complexities surrounding billing and treatment approval for dysphagia and pediatric feeding, specifically within the State of Oklahoma.
