Feeding Therapy 

Is your child a picky eater or a fussy feeder?

  • Are Mealtimes stressful?
  • Are you worried about your child’s chewing or swallowing
  • Does your child cough, splutter, gag or spit when eating?
  • Do mealtimes take a long time?
  • Are they reluctant to try new foods?
  • Do they have a limited diet or fussy about foods?
  • Is it hard for your child to sit and eat?
  • Are they eating enough for growth and development?
  • Are their feeding difficulties related to medical conditions e.g. reflux, naso gastric tubes or peg feeding?

At Kids Play we are passionate about getting picky eaters to eat.

We have brought together an experienced team to work together to support families and children develop their eating and participation in mealtimes. Our team includes Dr Sandra McMahon, Speech Pathologist, PHD who is the director of Speechnet Speech Pathology. Our lead Occupational Therapist is Katy Berezovsky with advanced training in the Sequencial Oral Sensory approach to feeding.

Our Approach

We use a range of approaches including SOS, Oro-motor skill development, positive mealtime management and a strengths based approach.

Our team has advanced training in the Sequential Oral Sensory Approach to feeding problems developed by Kay Toomey and Erin Ross. It utilises a step by step approach with systematic desensitization and behavioural modification.

This enables children to learn the routine of participating in mealtimes, how to explore food in fun and new ways, how to engage with a broader range of foods and start to expand what they eat.

We provide an individual service based on the needs of the family and child. Sessions can occur as an intensive block over 1-3 weeks, weekly, fortnightly or monthly. For Regional Families we can can provide an intensive block followed by skype follow up.

Feeding is a complex area and we work with other professionals as required including Dietitians, Paediatricians, GPs, Gastroenterologists and your child’s existing therapists.

Take the stress out of eating.
