Join us for a monthly support group for parents who have children suffering from eating disorders or who have an adolescent transitioning to adult care. Each month we share information and encourage each other. Guest speakers share their knowledge and insights to equip parents with tools to successfully work with their children. The group supplies hope, inspiration and strength.
The facilitator is a mother whose child is an eating disorder survivor. She knows first hand how hard it is to provide the support and effective treatment children need to beat eating disorders. She also knows that eating disorders can be cured and she encourages and supports parents as they support their children.
Each session is informal, and we encourage you to drop in or come for the whole evening. It runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Title: Eating and Feeding Matters: From Science to Strategies
Presented By: Kim Barthel, OTR
On-line series of 8 live 90-minute webinars
(sessions will also be recorded with access available to registrants for 60 days after the live event)
Jan 30, 31 & Feb 6, 7, 2021
Two 90-minute sessions per day

Many clients with neurodiversity and mental health issues experience profound disturbances in their participation in eating and feeding. Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Pathologists, Physiotherapists, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Counselors, Behavioural Therapists and Nutritionists are team members who evaluate and enhance these functions, but sometimes struggle in seeing the integrated whole of the various complex factors contributing to the clients’ experiences. This workshop is a cutting-edged compilation of research on the science of eating and feeding from a neurobiological/physiological perspective as it pertains to picky eating, eating disorders (ARFID, anorexia nervosa, bulimia), sensory issues, oral motor/pharyngeal issues and attachment. Trans-disciplinary research, assessment and intervention strategies will be presented and discussed.
