Feeding Therapy

Feeding therapy can help infants and children with:

  • Food refusal and food selectivity by type and/or texture
  • Oral motor deficits
  • Delayed feeding development
  • Food or swallowing phobias

Why is it important? Feeding therapy can prevent and eliminate nutritional concerns, growth concerns (including failure to thrive), unsafe swallowing which may lead to aspiration, pneumonia, and future poor eating habits/attitudes.

Feeding therapy can help with:

  • Independently eating a wide array of textures
  • Demonstrating safe chewing/swallowing
  • Increasing intake
  • Decreasing negative mealtime behaviors
