Provides individual and group Sensory Oral Sequential Approach (S.O.S) therapy sessions.  S.O.S. is an integrative program that addresses the sensory, motor, oral, behavioral, and nutritional components of feeding. Both session types follow a structured routine, presenting food in a playful manner that encourages the child to learn that foods can be safe and enjoyable. These presentations increase a child’s ability to smell, touch, taste, eat, and interact with foods. Therapists use language to help predict what food might feel, taste, and smell like, and what the child’s mouth might be required to do with each different food. An in-depth assessment of a child’s eating patterns can help determine if a child’s feeding difficulties require intervention. Parent feedback, obtained through a feeding questionnaire and interview, accompanies the evaluation process.
Ages: 0-14.
Private insurance accepted.
No wait list.
