Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

The findings of a recent study highlight the importance of a comprehensive approach to rehabilitation that considers oral motor and neurobehavioral alterations to address feeding challenges associated with premature birth. This presentation will reveal these results and help to elucidate relationships between early feeding skills and key neurobehavioral components. Understanding such relationships can lead to early identification of adverse outcomes and optimize outcomes for preterm infants.
