Boston Children’s Hospital is a leader in pediatric medical care in the United States. We specialize in working with infants and children with a range of health issues. The Feeding and Swallow Program at Boston Children’s Hospital provides services to hospital inpatients, as well as outpatients with feeding and swallowing difficulties. We work collaboratively with a range of other health professionals to ensure that each patient gets the full care they require. Our approach is patient-centered and encourages family involvement. Our staff specialize in managing infants and children with feeding difficulties, working with children with tube feeds, transitioning to solids, oral aversion, specialized feeding equipment, modified texture diets, thickened liquids, pediatric dysphagia, and behavioral feeding issues. In addition to thorough feeding and swallowing evaluations, we also provide short-term group and individual feeding therapy services. Instrumental swallowing assessments are also available including Modified Barium Swallow Studies (MBS) and Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES).
