Additional information:

We offer diagnostic and treatment interventions for infants and children with feeding and nutritional difficulties. Our goal is to provide interdisciplinary evaluation and treatment with an individualized focus to optimize and generalize therapeutic gains into the home setting through caregiver training. Childhood feeding and swallowing difficulties can stem from a wide variety of causes, with all of them potentially leading to increased anxiety and stress in the home setting, making mealtimes often a battle ground. Given that feeding is one of the most complex processes, we use a collaborative approach in order to provide optimal therapeutic outcomes.
