Working together to expand food choices, tolerating textures and flavors
When a family becomes as part of our feeding therapy programs, there is an multidisciplinary team consisting of speech therapy and occupational therapy working behind them. Our program has been designed for children, including those with special needs such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Down Syndrome, Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) or simply children coined as “the picky eater”. The ultimate goal of our feeding therapy is to instill a positive approach to food, help expand food choices, texture and flavors so nutritious family meals can be enjoyed by, and with, all family members.
How do sessions work?
Once the hands-on office based evaluation has been completed, a highly specialized treatment plan is developed specifically for the child. Therapeutic interventions are then offered within the clinic setting, as well as the home, school and community. Most treatment sessions are 60 minutes in length - 45 minutes of direct intervention and 15 minutes of parent education/home programming.
