Feeding Therapy in the Chicago area – Empowering Lives
We’re proud to offer clinicians that are trained and certified in evidence-based feeding therapy to our families in the Chicago area. Our occupational and speech therapists have undergone extensive training in the SOS Feeding Approach. Through this approach, we offer individual and group feeding sessions to support a child’s growth with exploring and learning different properties of food. This approach allows a child to interact with food in a playful, non-stressful experience.
The child may begin by just working to tolerate the food in the room and in front of them, to then managing the smell of challenging foods, learning about body awareness and how to interact with foods through their hands and mouth, and finally supporting tasting and consumption of new foods. This feeding therapy in the northwest suburbs of Chicago is a wonderful initiative, helping parents learn the right approach. A skilled therapist will be there to support that feeding experience and nurture their food journey. This specific approach supports all age ranges of pediatrics. This approach can be used for adolescent and adult individuals.
Great Approach Toward Healthy Life
Per the SOS Approach to Feeding website, this approach is “…the only results-driven feeding program with 30 years of proven clinical experience helping children learn the skills they need to eat well… the SOS Approach to Feeding program is an effective way to assess and address problematic feeding behaviors in a variety of settings and populations.”
We’re proud to say that many of our therapists have received direct training from the founder of the SOS Approach to Feeding, Dr. Kay A. Toomey, PhD. Contact for consultation on feeding therapy in Chicago area.
