Let's Work Together

A child may be appropriate for feeding therapy if they have a limited diet, only eat certain food items, avoid or refuse certain tastes, textures, or temperatures, and/or exhibit gagging/choking while eating. A child may also be appropriate for services if they are having difficulty feeding themselves safely and independently.
