Feeding Therapy Evaluations
Initially, you will be asked to provide as much information as possible including birth history, diagnoses, medical history, developmental milestones, and other relevant family history. From this information, appropriate testing will be determined.
Oral motor feeding, speech and language evaluations are generally two hours in length. During this comprehensive evaluation, we analyze the oral structures as the child moves through his/her environment using a variety of food and non-food items to determine how sensory and motor deficits are impacting feeding skills and sound production.
The evaluation is completed using a task analysis approach, which is utilized to develop an individual program plan with specific exercises and goals to address any areas of deficit. After the evaluation, we provide you with a full report and individualized program plan.
Off-site screening is available for groups, such as preschools and daycare facilities.
