If your child has any of the following issues, a feeding assessment might be needed:
On the day of the assessment, you will be asked to bring certain foods from home to trial in the session with the therapist. After a thorough interview with the therapist, she will observe your child’s feeding and drinking abilities. During the assessment, she might trial some strategies that might improve your child’s feeding skills. Depending on the outcome of the assessment, feeding therapy might be recommended.
