Feeding Therapy 

Mealtime is often a time of positive family connection, joy, and nourishment. But when mealtime is disrupted by challenging behaviors or feeding difficulties, mealtime can be a time of great strife. Anticipating and participating in meals can be a chronic source of anxiety for parents/caregivers, the child, as well as siblings. Our therapist use a variety of positive teaching practices to support the family mealtime, along with developing the specific skills the child requires for increased independence. We believe that tailoring the therapy to each child and family's needs will result in the most optimal outcomes.  

Our treatment approaches are informed by training these areas:

 

Sequential Oral Sensory (S.O.S) Approach to Feeding program

Ellyn Satter's Division of Responsibility in Feeding

Lactation and weaning

Beckman Oral Motor training

Tube feeding and weaning

Sensory-based food introduction

Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration (MNRI®)
