Feeding Group

During this 45-minute group, participants work with a speech-pathologist while learning about new foods using the SOS Approach to Feeding. Parents are welcome to observe the session and receive education and feedback following session. 

​Feeding group is for children who experience the following challenges:

  • Eat less than 20 different foods
  • Refuse to eat entire categories of food textures or nutrition groups (meats, vegetables, fruits) 
  • Cry, Scream, Tantrum, or “fall apart” when new foods are presented or completely refuse
  • Almost always eat a different set of foods than the family
  • Sometimes stop eating a food that had previously liked
  • Have been described as a “picky eater”
  • It is a closed activity group specifically for children who have a decreased food repertoire. The program provides individualized attention in a structured environment and includes a parental education component of the permission approach to food. By the end of the six-week session, group members will have participated (by visually interacting or tactile exploring) in the warm-up, two main activities, and closing of the food exploration activity for its entire duration.

Parents will fill out a qualitative survey to track progress of food interaction.
