One-on-One Feeding Sessions

During a one-on-one feeding session, the licensed occupational therapist can assist a child with a wide variety of feeding difficulties and help them learn to enjoy their daily mealtime.  The therapist will work with a child on a structured feeding program designed specifically for their individual feeding concerns.  Such feeding issues may include but are not limited to:

  • Food refusal
  • Oral sensory sensitivity
  • Oral motor weakness and other oral motor delays
  • Limited food repertoire
  • Food phobias or anxieties

By addressing the individual needs of a child with feeding difficulties, the therapist can make mealtimes in both the home and community settings more enjoyable for a child and their family, as well improve the child’s nutritional health and address safety concerns for children with poor oral motor control.
