Is this a feeding Team?
What services are offered?
Outpatient: Once a week or less (overnight stay not required)
The University of Washington Autism Center is excited to offer therapy services for children experiencing feeding challenges including: difficulty eating a wide range of food types and textures, struggling with oral motor skills needed to chew, swallow, and eat/drink, difficulty moving to solid foods or are stuck at a specific food texture, learned that eating is unpleasant or difficult, and those that have anxiety and challenging behaviors related to mealtimes. We treat children who currently receive nutrition via G-tube to support the process of transitioning to oral feeding by establishing critical oral motor and sensory processing skills, however our team does not work to actively wean children from tube feeds.
