Feeding Therapy

Helping Every Child Thrive

We recognize that feeding difficulties are complicated. Our interdisciplinary team includes a speech pathologist and occupational therapist who work closely with you and your physician to assure that all factors are considered. Our team will develop a customized treatment plan that best addresses your child’s feeding and swallowing needs. Parent education is a vital component of this program.
