Feeding Therapy in Portland, OR
Our feeding clinic is appropriate for kids of all ages and backgrounds. Our focus is to provide tools for families of children who struggle to efficiently, safely, and/or enjoyably feed themselves. Family members, caregivers, pediatricians and other professionals may also benefit from the support and trainings Parkwood clinicians offer surrounding mealtimes. We use a variety of approaches, including Sequential-Oral-Sensory (SOS) approach to feeding in order to systematically approach mealtimes to encourage fun and non-stressful exploration of new foods! Our feeding approach is tailored to increasing a child’s comfort level around food through exploration and learning, in addition to working on the muscular and coordinating skills to manage harder-to-chew foods. We use sequential steps to increase children’s comfort and confidence, building therapy programs that eventually allow smelling, touching and experiencing new foods to encourage positive mealtimes for the whole family.
