In-Home | South Hill Office | Virtual
All the ins and outs of feeding your newborn. We customize each consult to your personal history and feeding goals.
We complete a thorough review of medical, developmental, and feeding history, conduct an oral sensory-motor assessment, feeding observation, and collaboratively develop family goals. Next, we design an individualized program, and work with you to implement it during and between sessions.
*Because feeding issues can be multifactorial, we may recommend collaboration with other providers in the community.
Therapy sessions target feeding goals recommended and agreed upon following the initial evaluation. All goals are parent/family driven, with emphasis on responsive feeding, playful child engagement, and parent coaching. Sessions may be scheduled weekly, bi-monthly, or on an as-needed basis.
FEEDING THERAPY + CST
In addition to oral motor therapy, infant feeding sessions integrate various whole body techniques in order to maximize feeding outcomes.
VIRTUAL FAMILY SUPPORT
Virtual support is available to families outside the Spokane, Washington area. This is not direct therapy, but rather parent coaching. We work collaboratively to give you the confidence to feed your babies. Whether you want guidance on implementing baby led weaning, need help getting your toddler out of a food rut, or want to target oral motor skills to prepare baby for solids--we provide evidence-based guidance.
