Course Description

READ THIS FIRST: The contents in this introductory course: A Visual Guide to Structure and Function Issues in Infants are included our comprehensive course. If you have already taken our comprehensive course: Structure and Function: How the Infant's Structure Affects the Infant's Function, then you do not need to purchase this introductory course. 

This introductory course provides an overview of the causes and contributors of structural issues, how structural issues can affect infants, and how to visually assess structural issues in infants.  This course 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, including parents, and any practitioner who works with infants but whose scope of practice does not allow hands-on assessment. 

This course is approximately 2 hours in length. Students will have 2 weeks access to complete the course.

NOTE: The content in this introductory course is included in our comprehensive course

There are no CERPs offered for this course.  A Certificate of Completion will be emailed to students who complete the course and pass the quiz.
