Is My Child a Problem Feeder or Picky Eater?
What will Creative Speech Therapy NYC do to help my child eat?
First, we will complete a thorough evaluation to determine the underlying cause of your child’s picky eating or problem feeding. This includes an examination of the structures of the mouth, feeding tools, feeding patterns, and feeding techniques. The examination also includes a thorough investigation of background, medical history, and family history.
Once we determine the underlying cause of your child’s limited diet, we will formulate a plan with goals to address the root cause.
Depending on the cause, we implement the following techniques as appropriate:
- Sensorimotor Feeding Therapy
- Oral Motor Therapy
- Baby Led Weaning
- Responsive Feeding Therapy
Finally, we will treat your child using kid friendly and research based interventions. We help you build trust between you and your child so that he/she is willing to try new foods using therapeutic approaches at home.
