Course Description

This educational program gives an introduction to the causes and contributors of structural issues, how structural issues can affect infants, and how to visually assess structural issues in infants.  This program looks at reasons beyond oral issues (tongue-tie, congenital defects, etc.) that affect infant feeding and behavior. 

This course is excellent for lactation and birth professionals, postpartum doulas, IBCLCs, parents, and any practitioner who works with infants but whose scope of practice does not allow hands-on assessment.  


This program is approximately 2 hours in length.  

CERPs are not offered for this course.
