Feeding Therapy

Prematurity, cardiac conditions, sensory integration disorders, neurological disorders, and muscular weakness are just a few of the possible causes for feeding challenges.

Some children have difficulty sucking and chewing, while others are challenged by eating a variety of food textures. Still others tire before they are able to take in enough calories to remain healthy. At IDC, feeding therapy is designed to improve children's ability to breast feed, bottle feed,and/ or eat age-appropriate foods. Feeding therapy encourages success and feelings of safety while challenging children to progress toward age-appropriate feeding skills.
