Difficulty with chewing, swallowing, and the manipulation of food/drink for safe consumption is known as a feeding disorder. Therapy will consist of increasing strength and coordination of oral/facial structures, sensory adaptations. Feeding therapy is appropriate for those having difficulty with acceptance of new and varying foods, textures, tastes, and consistencies. We will approach each feeding client with a combination of SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) and behavioral feeding strategies to determine which course of treatment would be most appropriate.

The SOS (Sequential-Oral-Sensory) Approach to Feeding Program was developed by Dr. Kay Toomey and is used worldwide to treat feeding issues in infants, children, and adolescents. It is a transdisciplinary, holistic and family-centered program based on Dr. Toomey’s 30 years of clinical experience in treating children who struggle to eat.  For more information about SOS Approach to Feeding, visit the SOS Approach to Feeding website.
