Feeding Therapy

Regardless of whether a child has autism or a related disorder, our specialists provides interdisciplinary assessment and behavior treatment of children between 12 months and 21 years of age with feeding disorders.

– Poor weight gain

– Bottle or formula dependence
– Mealtime tantrums, or mealtimes exceeding 40 minutes
– Distress and anxiety with new foods
– Inability to increase textures
– Inability or refusal to feed oneself
