❓Are you considering pursuing or starting feeding therapy soon with your child? Did you know that for feeding therapy, your child will likely see a Speech-Language Pathologist, an Occupational Therapist, or maybe even both?!
❓You might be wondering a little bit about what happens during feeding therapy and what things we work on! Here are a few: [keep in mind your child may not need help in all of these areas, but your therapist(s) should be sure to talk about them with you!]
✅ training oral motor skills (improving tongue, lip, mouth strength/coordination) for better eating and drinking skills
✅ improving their toleration of a variety of textures/sensory input
✅ developing fine motor skills for using utensils
✅ working on drinking from a variety of cups
✅transitioning to solid foods
✅ increasing the range of foods they interact with/eat
✅ assisting families in developing mealtime strategies
✅ assisting your child in being comfortable and seated for mealtimes
and so much more! Please feel free to reach out with any questions!
