Developmental Feeding Services

For parents who are struggling to feed their children and are having difficulty teaching them to eat independently, developmental feeding services prove to be the most appropriate therapy.At NAPA, we offer relationship-based developmental feeding services using a comprehensive approach targeting muscular coordination, sensory processes, and social experiences associated with eating. We also offer VitalStim for the treatment of dysphasia and swallowing difficulties.

Your child may benefit from occupational therapy feeding services if they:

  • Dislike having their teeth brushed
  • Have a limited food repertoire
  • Avoid certain food textures
  • Gag or vomit when eating
  • Refuse to eat
  • Fight eating during mealtimes
  • Eat only a small amount despite hunger
  • Demonstrate poor weight gain
  • Are fed with a g-tube/NG-tube
  • Demonstrate difficulties with chewing
  • Overstuff their mouth
  • Place non-food items in their mouth
