Feeding the Young Child: The sDOR Approach

Parents and children play different, but equally important roles in mealtimes. This webinar will teach attendees about the basics of good nutrition and feeding development. We will explore what happens when things change, especially as children enter toddlerhood and want more control with what they eat, or experience other feeding challenges. The Satter Eating Competence Model and Division of Responsibility will offer a platform from which to learn how to better support parents and children during mealtime struggles.

Nancy has been a registered dietitian/licensed nutritionist for over 30 years. She has had both adult and pediatric experience before entering Early Intervention 16 years ago. Nancy worked for Abbott Laboratories (baby formula company) for 4 years and then went into private practice, where she worked in long term care facilities (pediatric and adult), private doctor’s offices, young adult group homes and managed a program with Rush Hospital for pediatric weight loss.
While in Early Intervention, Nancy has acquired much knowledge and experience with children that have feeding difficulties related to prematurity, sensory issues, feeding tube dependence and developmental delays with feeding. She has acquired training in the SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) approach, the Food Chaining approach and Permission approach to feeding. Nancy became an Ellyn Satter Institute Associate which is an evidence based approach and research supported approach for Feeding Dynamics and Eating Competency. This model, similar to the Get Permission Approach to feeding, is based on a trust model and no pressure approach to feeding. She also has training and a certificate from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in Adolescent and Pediatric Obesity training.
