Lynn Gauman Speech Pathology Services incorporates parents as partners in creating a plan to facilitate feeding skills for their child. Lynn has over 20 years of experience in the field of speech pathology with extensive training in feeding disorders. She is experienced as a feeding therapist from the NICU through adult rehabilitation services. For the past 12 years Lynn has focused exclusively on speech pathology services for the pediatric population. She evaluates and treats children with sensory, motor and/or behaviorally-based feeding disorders including food refusal and failure to thrive. Lynn identifies a sensory hierarchy (based on her training in “Food Chaining”), oral-motor strengths and contributory weaknesses, as well as learned behaviors that may be inhibiting feeding routines. She refers her patients to local and regional pediatric feeding teams for instrumental evaluations (such as Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Studies) and multidisciplinary consultations as needed.
