Feeding and Nutrition
Ensuring that your child is eating a healthy and balanced diet doesn’t need to be a battle. Good information goes a long way. Children with special needs can often be challenging to feed. There are things you can do to enhance your child’s diet although some children may have unique needs such as oral sensory aversions or trouble swallowing that make adjusting their diet very challenging. In such situations, working with a “feeding therapist,” typically a speech & language pathologist or occupational therapist with special training in feeding issues, may be very helpful.
