Bilingual speech and language therapy services (Spanish)
Feeding difficulties can be a common problem in children. This may include:
Difficulty chewing and swallowing.
Pickiness or a limited number of accepted foods.
Reluctance to eat different textures and try new foods.
Rigid or challenging mealtime behaviors.
Strong sensory preferences, sometimes refusing categories of food because of textures.
Feeding therapy can be helpful in addressing many feeding problems. This includes methods to support your child's learning to eat various foods. Address oral-motor delays, such as learning to chew correctly and swallow food safely. We work with you and your child to develop a plan based on their feeding needs and medical history. We’ll also consider any recommendations from their doctor and your child’s own goals.
