Feeding Therapy

Feeding Therapy

Feeding can be an ongoing source of stress for a family that can begin in infancy and continue through childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood. Some bumps in the road can be normal with breastfeeding or a “picky” eater. However, an underlying sensory, oral-motor, or structural issue could be the root of the problem.

When is it Time For Feeding Therapy?

Feeding therapy can help if your child:​

  • Eats fewer than 20 different types of foods

  • Has meltdowns over new foods or changes to preferred foods

  • Completely refuses food categories or textures

  • Is having difficulty transitioning to solid food

  • Is working to transition from a feeding tube (Nasogastric or PEG)

  • Has feeding difficulty due to complex medical concerns

Benefits of Treatment

  • Better nutrition habits

  • Easier meal preparation

  • Better performance in school

  • Better quality of life
