Mealtime Difficulties

Transform Mealtime into a Joyful Experience: Conquer Feeding Difficulties with Ponte Vedra Speech, Language, and Learning’s Feeding Therapy

Does your child face challenges during mealtimes? Are they struggling with food refusal due to sensory responses to textures or tastes? Do you have a picky eater who avoids certain foods? Is your child experiencing difficulties with chewing, swallowing, or gagging? At Ponte Vedra Speech, Language, and Learning, we understand that mealtime difficulties can create stress and impact your child’s nutrition and overall well-being. Our specialized feeding therapy program is designed to help children overcome these challenges, transforming mealtime into a positive and enjoyable experience.

Benefits of our Feeding Therapy:

  1. Address Sensory-Based Eating Challenges: Our expert therapists understand the sensory aspects of food aversion and sensory sensitivities. Through systematic desensitization techniques and exposure therapy, we help children overcome sensory responses to textures, tastes, and smells, expanding their food repertoire and increasing acceptance.
  2. Expand Food Variety: Picky eating can limit a child’s nutritional intake and affect their overall health. Our therapy program focuses on gradually introducing new foods, building positive associations, and expanding the variety of foods your child is willing to try and eat.
  3. Improve Oral-Motor Skills: Difficulties with chewing, swallowing, or gagging can impact a child’s ability to consume a variety of textures and consistencies. Our therapy program targets oral-motor skills, helping children develop the strength, coordination, and control necessary for successful eating and swallowing.
  4. Create Positive Mealtime Dynamics: Mealtime should be a pleasant and stress-free experience for the entire family. Our therapy program provides strategies and techniques to create a positive mealtime environment, fostering healthy eating habits, and promoting positive interactions between parents and children.
  5. Ensure Adequate Nutrition: Proper nutrition is crucial for a child’s growth and development. Our therapy program aims to ensure that your child receives a balanced diet, addressing any nutritional gaps caused by limited food choices or aversions.
