Our Feeding Program
Our applied behavior consultants specialize in crafting interventions aimed at fostering healthier eating habits—an essential part of care for children of all ages.
At ABC Therapy Clinics, we’re acutely aware of how feeding difficulties can profoundly affect a child’s overall health and developmental progress. Within our spectrum of Autism services, we offer a specialized feeding program meticulously tailored to confront and surmount the hurdles associated with eating, swallowing, and feeding in children. This program integrates sensory strategies, oral motor skill enhancement, behavior management techniques, and caregiver education to comprehensively address these challenges.
The first part of our program helps children use utensils (forks and spoons especially). The second part helps children expand what is typically a very rigid and restricted diet. The health implications of expanding a child’s diet will help him/her in a multitude of ways and represents a foundational milestone for their development.
