The Missing Link: Self Study Continuing Education for Nutrition Services Awareness in Early Intervention. Workbook.
Johnson, Lara; And Others
This workbook is a companion to an 18-minute instructional video on nutrition services in early intervention programs. Both the workbook and the video are designed to assist early intervention professionals concerning nutrition and feeding concerns of children with special health care needs. The following issues are addressed: importance of nutrition services; the range of common nutrition problems faced by early intervention clients and their families; the effects on families when nutrition issues are not addressed; an appropriate model for providing screening and intervention nutrition programs; obtaining services of a qualified nutritionist and effective integration into the early intervention care process; and how nutritionists function to meet the nutrition-related needs of early intervention clients. The workbook contains a pre-assessment and post-assessment checklist, video trigger questions and answers, issues for discussion, information on the background of the problem (including federal regulations and status of nutrition services in early intervention programs), sample screening forms, and a list of 11 resources.
