Feeding is a vital part of our lives. Eating properly provides our bodies with adequate nutrition for growth and development. Meal times are also social times for interaction with family and friends within our society. While it seems that eating should come naturally, it does not for many children for various reasons. A child may have weakness or lack coordination in their oral muscles, they may have aversions to textures or tastes, or they may have difficulty swallowing. At SPT, we have speech and occupational therapists who are trained to help your child with the various aspects of feeding. Our therapists have been trained in various feeding programs to offer the latest treatment techniques to address your child’s feeding concerns. Our non-invasive and play-based treatment techniques will allow your child to enjoy learning to eat.
