FEEDING THERAPY

Feeding therapy focuses on enhancing children’s pre-feeding skills, engagement in meals, and oral-motor skills for safe and effective eating. The goal of feeding therapy is to make mealtimes and food a fun and enjoyable experience for your entire family. Our Speech-Language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists work individually and, on a team, to complete comprehensive evaluations and create individualized treatment goals to address the feeding and eating needs of all children.
