Our feeding therapy sessions provide positive experiences and interactions with foods, encouraging clients to explore the foods in a positive and playful way.
The sessions consider each client's unique learning style, sensory and motor differences and history with feeding challenges.
Sessions focus on increasing a child's awareness and exploration of a variety of food properties, including texture, temperature, color, smell, appearance, shape and taste. In addition, children are taught to be comfortable with small changes being made to foods presented. This is particularly helpful in addressing challenging feeding behaviors such as only eating one specific brand of cookie, or only eating with a specific fork. Children are never force fed.
The program focuses on developing a healthy, lifelong positive relationship with food.
Feeding therapy helps children with a wide array of feeding difficulties which may include one or more of the following:
