What is Pediatric Feeding Therapy?
Pediatric feeding therapy is a specialized form of therapy designed to address feeding difficulties in infants, children, and adolescents. At Foundations Therapy, feeding therapy is provided by trained speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists.
Pediatric feeding therapy aims to assess and treat a range of feeding and swallowing issues, including difficulties related to oral motor skills, sensory aversions or sensitivities, behavioral challenges, and medical conditions that affect feeding.
