Feeding Therapy

Feeding therapy is helpful for infants and children who have difficulties sucking, chewing, feeding, or swallowing. Other areas of concern may include food sensitivity, food or texture sensitivities, mealtime tantrums, or reduced food or liquid intake. Depending on your child's areas of need, they may participate in sensory integration activities or oral-motor exercises in order to strengthen the muscles needed for eating. Feeding therapy is usually facilitated by occupational therapists or speech and language pathologists. Therapy Junction has therapists trained in the SOS Approach to Feeding and Beckman Oral Motor techniques.
