Course Description

During this introductory course, SLPS's will break down the ASHA Code of Ethics and how it specifically relates to children with Pediatric Feeding Disorders. Through case studies and correlation, we will use scenarios that occur every day in our practice with these families and begin to make decisions for situations when EBP, ethics, values, morals, and outside factors collide.
