Feeding Disorders Program

Interdisciplinary Feeding Evaluations

In conjunction with the family, the clinic-based evaluations identify the primary feeding problems to allow for the development of appropriate therapeutic interventions.  These evaluations include:

  • Review of family concerns and goals
  • Diet Assessment
  • Review of medical, feeding and diet history
  • Assessment of sensory/behavioral factors
  • Oral mechanism exam
  • Feeding observation assessment
  • Family consultation to review evaluation findings and recommendations

Therapeutic Intervention

Direct and consultative feeding therapy is available and provided by relevant team members as determined by the interdisciplinary evaluation.  Active home programming is a vital component of both models of intervention.
