Parents of children who have feeding difficulties are often faced with a challenging situation. Because the interplay between nutrition, gastrointestinal health, and a child’s experience of food can be complicated, there is rarely an easy solution when a feeding problem arises. Through a series of questions, our therapy supervisors will determine whether your child’s feeding needs will be best served by either a speech-language pathologist or occupational therapist. During the evaluation and throughout treatment your child’s therapist will develop and utilize a plan of care tailored specifically for your child’s and family’s needs and will work closely with your family and other specialists involved with your child’s care to help your child become a safe, efficient, and willing participant in mealtimes. Our therapists have specialized training in several approaches to feeding, including SOS, AEIOU and SOFFI.
