In this episode Michelle is joined once again by Miss Erin Forward, MSP CF-SLP, where they tackle some common, some not so common, and a few rare genetic syndromes…and how they can result in an oropharygneal dysphagia or feeding aversion. If you have questions regarding some basic terminology on how genetic conditions are inherited or caused…and how they correspond to a child needing services for functional feeding…well then this is the episode for you!

Objective

By the end of this PodCourse, participants will be able to identify and describe:

  1. Two common genetic conditions and how they can correlate to a feeding aversion or an oropharyngeal dysphagia.
  2. Two uncommon genetic conditions and how they can correlate to a feeding aversion or an orophayrngeal dysphagia.
  3. Two rare genetic conditions and how they can correlate to a feeding aversion or an orophayrngel dysphagia.
About Erin: Erin Forward, MS CF-SLP, is a recent graduate from University of South Carolina, with a Masters in Speech Language Pathology. She completed her undergraduate degree in both Psychology and Communication Science and Disorders at the University of Pittsburgh. Her passions in the field of speech pathology lie with pediatric dysphagia, feeding, and AAC, specifically in patients with developmental disabilities. This interest came from her time working at the Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh and through her feeding experiences in practicums in a variety of settings including: early-intervention, outpatient clinics, and inpatient acute care at a children’s hospital. Working with Michelle Dawson during the summer of 2017 fueled her desire to dig deeper into pediatric dysphagia specifically and to advocate for the needs of those patients who are affected by it.
