Feeding Therapy

Occupational Therapists play a vital role in helping children with eating and feeding difficulties. Some of the areas we can help with include:
  • Sensory processing challenges with food and eating
  • Regulation for mealtimes and eating
  • Oral motor skill development
  • Reducing anxiety and stress at mealtimes-for the child and family
  • Tolerance of new foods-child and family led
  • Environment and routine for positive mealtimes
