Additional information:

Feeding therapy clinic/programme providing international consultancy and in-home treatment services that work for paediatric feeding disorders, employing well-established, empirically-supported treatments with 50 years of evidence. The approach is individualised, data-driven, and direct, with significant caregiver support. Goals include increasing nutritional variety/volume and hydration, and teaching skills needed for independence (cup drinking, self-feeding with utensils) and texture (chewing). We can collaborate with your child’s existing team/providers. Tessa Taylor, PhD, BCBA-D has nearly 25 years of experience.
