Feeding Therapy Blocks
Feeding therapy at Sweeney, Augustin and Associates uses relationship based intervention to expand our clients’ food repertoire and social desire to engage with food. Our staff works to improve oral motor, sensory, and behavioral patterns within a framework where food is presented as a positive social experience. Our speech and language pathologists and social workers facilitate our feeding therapy blocks collaboratively in order to provide the most comprehensive intervention. Our staff also includes professionals trained in the SOS Approach to Feeding.
Current research strongly supports the value of making connections between therapy and home, and our Feeding Therapy Blocks include a parent-learning component in order to accelerate progress and maximize positive outcomes.
Feeding Therapy Blocks may be one hour in length or may be combined with speech and language therapy and/or social work blocks.
