Banner Children’s at Thunderbird Medical Center provides feeding assessment, consultation and therapy that is comprehensive and individualized from the NICU and beyond. We are focused on family-centered care to educate caregivers on how to strengthen positive eating behaviors. We help develop strategies to help your child eat more with less refusing and stress for the family at mealtime. We treat children up to 18 years old in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Banner Thunderbird’s Pediatric Swallowing and Feeding Rehabilitation Program believes children with feeding problems require the expertise of several pediatric specialists and has access to a team of professionals including developmental pediatrics, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech pathology/ oral-motor therapy, nutrition, gastroenterology, pulmonology and neurology. Our highly proficient staff works together to ensure patients and their families receive the best care possible.
