Intended for use in Florida training programs for caregivers of infants and toddlers with disabilities, this guide presents an overview of the Model of Interdisciplinary Training for Children with Handicaps (MITCH); offers a user's guide to the series; and provides specific information for presenting Module 10, which focuses on nutrition and feeding practices. After the introduction to the MITCH program as a whole, the user's guide provides information on the instructor's role, the 3-hour training session, the use of videotapes and audiotapes, and follow-up activities. For this module, goals and objectives focus on providing participants with an understanding of the basic food groups, nutrition risk factors, practices which instill positive attitudes toward food, the importance of eating a variety of foods, correct portion size, the normal development of feeding skills, and feeding problems. For each hour of training, a script, suggested activities, and relevant handouts are provided. Attached are lists of recommended resources and references, reproducible forms and handouts, and forms for the 6-week follow up. Also attached is a nutrition handbook for parents and teachers which includes information on nutritional risks, appetite and weight, vitamin and mineral supplements, pica, allergies, dental health, infantilism, disruptive mealtime behavior, food texture, school lunch program, diet and hyperactivity, drug nutrient interactions, and special infant concerns.
