Additional information:

The Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Rehabilitation Program at Banner Children’s at Cardon Children’s provides individualized, comprehensive feeding assessments, consultations, and therapy from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and beyond. Through family-centered care, we provide caregiver education on strengthening positive eating behaviors, and develop strategies to help your child refuse less, eat more, and reduce mealtime stress. Our dedicated team of occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech pathology, oral-motor therapy, nutrition, gastroenterology, pulmonology and neurology professionals understand that children with feeding issues require a variety of specialists’ expertise. Our program treats children through 18 years of age, in our inpatient and outpatient settings, and work collaboratively to ensure patients and families receive the best care possible. At Banner Children’s, we exist to make a difference in people’s lives through excellent patient care.
