Additional information:

Feeding difficulties present differently in each child, and some symptoms may not be obvious. There are, however, some key signs that may suggest your child is experiencing feeding and swallowing difficulties:
  • Choking/coughing during feeding
  • Congestion following feeding
  • Gagging or vomiting during or after feeding
  • Refusing to eat
  • Avoiding certain foods/beverages
  • Taking a long time to complete meals (longer than 30 minutes)
  • Completing meals quickly (less than 5 minutes)
We treat children with a variety of feeding difficulties, including:
  • Nervous system disorders
  • Gastrointestinal conditions
  • Prematurity/low birth weight
  • Respiratory difficulties
  • Cleft palate/cleft lip
  • Craniofacial deformities
  • Supplemental feedings (NG or G-tube)
  • Rigid/selective eating
Our clinic offers clinical feeding evaluations as well as interventions. Further diagnostics, such as video fluoroscopic studies, may be offered in collaboration with community partners.
