Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Speech-Language Pathologists’ Perception of Infants With Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome
This survey research explores neonatal intensive care unit speech-language pathologists’ perceptions of infants with neonatal abstinence syndrome; specifically, how NAS affects infants’ feeding skills, along with structural and oral-motor characteristics. The findings of this research will contribute to this population’s information base. The results are expected to inform the field and current evidence-based practice care for infants with NAS.
- Explain Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS)
- Describe infants with NAS and how NAS affects the infants’ feeding skills from the perspective of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs)
- Identify how SLPs in the NICU participate in intervention for infants with NAS and their families
