Many complex factors affect if and how a child will eat. Challenges in the area of mealtime participation can include a limited or restricted food repertoire, difficulty chewing foods and negotiating foods orally for breakdown and swallowing, difficulty sitting still and attending to eating, and challenges with utensil use or cup drinking. Difficulties in one or more of these areas can make participating in daily meal and snack times a challenge at home, at school, and in the community. Our team works closely with you to understand your child’s unique feeding problems, how feeding problems affect your family, and provide targeted treatment that leads to meaningful change.
We treat children with a variety of complex feeding problems, such as those who:
Eat or drink very little and do not gain weight or grow.
Eat only certain food types or textures.
Have sensitivities that make it hard for them to eat a wide range of food types and textures.
Felt pain while eating due to a health problem, like gastroesophageal reflux or irritable bowel disease.
Get some or all of their nutrition through a tube in their stomach, bowel, or vein (G tube, J tube, or NG tube).
Struggle with the oral motor skills they need to chew, swallow, and eat or drink safely.

Speech-Language Therapy Process
Our team will complete an initial assessment, create a treatment plan, provide individualized therapy based on proven practices, and then we educate the parents on how to effectively communicate with their child.
We assess your child’s communication skills using comprehensive observations, language measurements, parent information, and comprehensive records review. All aspects of the child’s communication and daily life are considered.
Using the comprehensive assessment information, we develop individualized treatment plans to address communication deficits and improve your child’s real-world communication skills.
We provide therapy designed around research-proven practices using a holistic view of each child. Using functional and effective approaches, we ensure data-driven results while remaining flexible to meet your child’s ever-changing needs.
Parent & Family Education
We believe that parents are a child’s primary intervention for communication. Our services include parent education to teach how to communicate more effectively with your child in everyday life.
