What Can We Do?
Our Occupational Therapists will determine whether your child’s participation in feeding activities is age appropriate, and if there are potential physical, sensory, cognitive, or other factors contributing to feeding challenges. Based on our assessment of your child’s needs, we may offer a treatment plan for feeding therapy in the clinic with your child or provide recommendations and next steps for your family at home and work in a consultative model.
Our Occupational Therapists use a variety of treatment approaches that best suit your child’s feeding concerns. We understand the importance of feeding within the context of a child’s environment; being part of family meal-time at home and eating with friends at school. With additional professional development courses and experiences, our Occupational Therapists provide direct feeding therapy, resources, and support to help you understand your child’s needs, and work together for your child to have a positive and healthy feeding experience!
