Feeding & Swallowing Therapy

  • Newborn feeding difficulties
  • Delayed/disorganized oral motor skills
  • Difficulty with food transitions Bottle to puree, puree to table food
  • Problem feeders Less than 25 foods in diet Gags/vomits at sight, smell or taste of food Extremely upset when new foods presented Refuses certain food types/textures
  • Tube feeding/alternative means of nutrition

     

Feeding should come naturally for babies and children but sometimes this doesn’t happen due to difficulty with sucking, coordinating breathing with eating, swallowing, oral hypersensitivity, gagging, coughing, food transition and other reasons we can help you identify.


As a result of these feeding problems your child could be at risk for low weight/growth development, poor nutrition, respiratory illness, aspiration, and restricted food repertoire. We work closely with parents, pediatricians, gastroenterologists, other specialized doctors, dietitians and develop a plan specific to your child.
