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.

If you have any concerns about your child, please contact me for a free, no-obligation consultation or information packet. You can reach me by calling 312-399-0370 or clicking on the button on the upper-right section of this page.
