Movies for Tube Feeding and Oral Motor Therapy

These might not be popcorn-type movies, but I recently borrowed two movies from The Oley Foundation that I thought I’d share with you.

  • Tube Feedings are Mealtimes, Too!
  • The “Get Permission” Approach to Mealtime and Oral Motor Treatment

Both are done by Marsha Dunn Klein, MEd, OTR/L of Mealtime Notions, and both are good. I, personally, got the most out of the “Get Permission” Approach. I appreciated the reminder to watch for Jenna’s cues and let her take the lead in feeding. It’s so easy to slip into worrying about how many mL I push, on what schedule and at what rate, and forget that there’s a kiddo involved who should be having at least some control over her eating. Especially if we want to be moving her toward oral feeding independence!

Keep in mind that these are clinical presentations, not Oscar nominee potential, and glean whatever information you can. Plus? It’s a free resource! WIN!

You can find these two DVDs and others at The Oley Foundation under “Resources” – Videos & DVDs, or follow the highlighted link.

    Wow – impressive resource! Thanks so much! I hope to spend some time viewing these this weekend. I’ve done a few posts on eat/feeding – linked in a box in my right column for those interested.

    Barbara –

    Oley sometimes has a wait for the media resources, but they’re worth the wait!
