Additional information:

Mealtime is an intimate and powerful experience. When there are difficulties with feeding and swallowing, this results in a negative impact on not only the infant or child, but the entire family dynamic. In our feeding program, our Speech-Language Pathologists are trained to assist you in fostering functional, safe and positive mealtime experiences. We treat a variety of feeding and swallowing disorders in infants and children related to developmental disabilities, prematurity, neuromuscular deficits, oral motor dysfunction, sensory processing challenges or other complex medical pathologies. Our clinicians utilize a wide variety of evidence-based techniques to ensure that your child receives excellent and comprehensive care for functional improvements in their mealtime skills. Our program believes in a consistently collaborative approach to therapy. We regularly communicate with all members of your feeding team including but not limited to pediatricians, ENTs, gastroenterologists, neurologists, nutritionists, allied health professionals and more. Our Feeding Program coordinator has trained and continues to train in internationally renowned pediatric feeding programs to include the SOFFI method through Dr. Erin Ross, the Sequential Oral Sensory Approach to Feeding through the Star Institute and Passy Muir for pediatric tracheostomy.
