Pediatric Therapies

Feeding Therapy

Our team of therapists offer evaluation and treatment for children with severely restricted eating patterns.


Our trained therapists will evaluate your child’s needs, including a review of what is or is not working during family mealtimes, and create an individualized treatment plan. 

Our approach is non-invasive, supportive, and reliant upon caregiver engagement. We know children will experience the greatest gains when caregivers are part of every session. Together, parents and therapists align around the child’s needs, and identify and practice strategies that work in therapy and can be part of the child’s success at home.     

Feeding consultations and therapies are available for children of all ages.
