Feeding Clinic

Dad feeing baby

A child’s developmental disability or chronic illness can often lead to feeding problems. If undiagnosed and untreated, feeding problems can adversely affect your child's growth and development.

Some examples of feeding problems include (but are not limited to):

  • Difficulty in tolerating textures
  • Presence of tongue thrust or bite reflex
  • Difficulty with positioning
  • Disruptive, undesirable behaviors at mealtime

We provide many specialized services to children, parents and other healthcare providers. Because feeding problems can be caused by such a range of complex and interrelated reasons, we take a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Your treatment team may include a board-certified pediatric specialist as well as a:

  • Registered dietitian
  • Occupational therapist
  • Behavioral psychologist
