Is this a feeding Team?


What services are offered?

Intensive Outpatient: Once or more per day for several days/week

Additional information:

Our speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists and BCBAs work together to evaluate your child’s feeding challenges. Our team assesses the child’s oral structures, swallowing abilities, risk for aspiration, behavior, diet, fine motor abilities, positioning and other factors related to eating and drinking. We consult with your child’s other specialists, such as nutritionists, ENTs, GI physicians, psychologists, etc. to ensure that our therapy approach is supporting all the needs of your child. After an evaluation, we might recommend feeding therapy, a food chaining approach, and/or a home feeding program. We also can provide adaptive equipment for self feeding and/or to help properly position a child for safe swallowing. Our goal is to improve your child’s swallowing, eating and behavior, improve his/her physical growth and development, and improve his/her nutritional status.
