All children should enjoy eating, have confidence in their skills, and eat enough to thrive.
For some families, however, mealtimes are not enjoyable. A child's delayed motor skills, sensory processing difficulties, or medical challenges can complicate the seemingly simple process of eating together.
A child may have difficulty eating for a variety of reasons. A child-centered, trust-based approach helps children and their families learn to love eating together as they build important mealtime skills.
During therapy we always follow the lead of the child and we never force children to eat. We respect a families' beliefs and culture and we partner with parents to create positive change during mealtimes.
