All children will turn their noses up to certain foods (brussel sprouts is an acquired taste) from time to time but there is a growing number of children that have diets that are quite limited. Mealtimes can quickly become stressful if you have a child with a limited diet and there are many reasons behind why your child may not want to try new food. If your child has a limited number of foods they will eat or is having challenges managing a certain texture of food he could benefit from a feeding assessment.
The initial meeting with your child will help identify the reasons behind your child’s feeding challenges and is comprised of a joint assessment with a speech-language pathologist and occupational therapist. This initial assessment will determine the treatment plan for your child that fits his unique needs and the needs of your family.
We would be happy to discuss your child’s feeding challenges with you to determine if our program would work for your son or daughter.
