Here are some of the ways that Metro Speech Therapy feeding therapy services can help your child:
Improving Oral Motor Skills
Our feeding therapists can work with your child to improve their oral motor skills, including tongue and lip movement, chewing, and swallowing. These skills are important for safe and efficient feeding.
Addressing Sensory Issues
Many children with feeding difficulties have sensory issues that impact their ability to eat. Our therapists use sensory approaches to help children tolerate different textures, temperatures, and tastes of food.
Introducing New Foods
Our feeding therapists can help children who are picky eaters or have limited diets to try new foods and expand their food choices. We use a variety of techniques to make mealtime fun and engaging for your child.
Managing Medical Conditions
If your child has a medical condition that impacts their ability to eat, such as reflux or a feeding tube, our feeding therapists can work with your child’s medical team to develop a feeding plan that meets their unique needs.
Supporting Parents and Caregivers
We understand that feeding difficulties can be stressful for parents and caregivers. Our feeding therapists work closely with families to provide education, support, and resources to help manage feeding challenges at home.
At Metro Speech Therapy, our goal is to help your child develop healthy eating habits and enjoy mealtime. Contact us to learn more about our pediatric feeding therapy services and how we can help your child thrive.
