Feeding tips

Tips for children with feeding disorders, by Kathryn (Singing through the rain blog). She outlines 12 tips for helping children with feeding issues, using the SOS approach to feeding (Sequential Oral Sensory).

“The SOS Approach to Feeding is a developmental feeding therapy that allows a child to interact with and learn about foods in a playful, non-stressful way. It helps increase a child’s comfort level by exploring different properties of the foods, including the color, shape, texture, smell and taste. The child is encouraged to progress up a series of steps to eating using “play with purpose” activities. Parent education and involvement are an essential part of this feeding program.” – couragecenter.org
