Feeding Therapy

Is it a daily struggle to prepare foods your child can and will eat? With the help of World of Words Speech & Feeding Services, you and your child can enjoy mealtimes without a fuss. We can provide feeding therapy services tailored to your loved one's needs.

In the simplest terms, our feeding therapy program helps children learn to eat or learn to eat better, ensuring that they are receiving the nutrition they need to properly grow and develop. We work with children who:

  • Have gastrostomy tubes (G-tubes)
  • Have trouble sipping or swallowing
  • Are sensitive to temperature or texture (oral aversion)
  • Have oral motor deficits
  • Suffer from delayed feeding development

Depending on your child's greatest needs, feeding therapy can involve strengthening your child's vocal cords and/or improving coordination to create a positive eating experience.
