Is this a feeding Team?


What services are offered?

Outpatient: Once a week or less (overnight stay not required)

Additional information: We provide comprehensive multidisciplinary feeding evaluations with a psychologist, speech-language pathologist, and an occupational therapist. During therapy, children are encouraged to interact with foods in a non-threatening environment. They learn to trust people with food (their usual experience is for someone to try to get it in their mouth) and they learn how to interact with foods gradually (first seeing, then touching, then tasting, with the ultimate goal of eating). Foods are presented in a specific hierarchy, where each food is linked to the previous food by at least one characteristic (color, shape, flavor). Feeding evaluations are provided for children of all ages. Treatment is recommended on the individual needs of the child, not based on age. Services can vary in frequency and composition.
