Mealtime should bring families together, not be a source of anxiety. If your child struggles with severely restricted eating patterns, St. David's Center can help.
Our innovative Feeding Therapy services help children with feeding disturbances learn to eat a balanced diet and experience less stress during mealtimes – ensuring healthier habits for the rest of their lives.
Using a multidisciplinary feeding therapy evaluation, our trained therapists create a plan that meets your child's individual needs. Our non-invasive, supportive approach helps resolve your child's feeding issues through a process of systematic desensitization and incorporates parent education and home practice, which are a vital part of the treatment.
Feeding consultations and therapies are available for children of all ages.
