Additional information:

Therapy Tree has extensive experience in the area of pediatric dysphagia and emphasizes the evaluation and treatment available for a wide range of babies and children in need of dysphagia intervention.  Therapists who provide pediatric feeding treatment for Therapy Tree will first complete an interview in order to review current knowledge in the field of pediatric dysphagia and acquire additional training and continuing education in the field as needed before implementing therapy. We utilize a comprehensive approach to treatment and home programming which may include but is not limited to the following programs and educators: Food Chaining by Cheri Fraker and Laura Walbert, Sequential Oral Sensory Approach to Feeding by Kay Toomey, evidenced based practices and successful treatment techniques by Marsha Dunn Klein, Suzanne Evans Morris, Teresa Gager, Catherine Shaker and Sara Rosenfeld Johnson.  We value a holistic feeding program that is tailored to a child’s needs and abilities and encourages manageable home programming with the flexibility to make adaptions to treatment as needed. Therapy Tree encourages a multidisciplinary team approach to treatment in order for the best possible care, therefore there may be consultation and/or treatment with any or all of the following in addition to a child’s pediatrician: Registered Dietician, Gastroenterologist, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Behavioral Psychologist, and Teachers or Counselors who may be a part of a child’s school environment.
