What is Pediatric Feeding Therapy?

Feeding therapy helps infants, toddlers and children with a wide array of eating and feeding difficulties which may include one or more of the following:

Reduced or limited intake
Food refusal
Food selectivity by type or texture
Dysphasia (swallowing difficulty)
Oral motor deficits
Delayed feeding development
Food or swallowing phobias
Mealtime tantrums
Addressing feeding problems may be important for preventing or eliminating problems regarding nutrition and growth.
