Feeding Therapy Sessions

Age Range: 1-15 years

Designed for: Families

Therapy sessions are fun, play-based meetings between a specialist therapist, family members and the child to support the development of a healthy relationship with food and feeding. Following an initial assessment, the therapist will establish a plan of clinical intervention and suggest strategies for home and family life. Sessions are designed to encourage the child, with no expectation or pressure around eating within the session. The therapist works closely with the family and will provide feedback week-on-week, as well as advising on potential further referrals to support dietary and nutritional needs.

Feeding Therapy Sessions can involve:

  • Initial assessment to identify needs
  • Review potential referrals
  • Intervention plan
  • Strategies for the home
  • Fun and play-based sessions
  • Weekly feedback
  • Nutritional advice
  • Referral to dietician

Our Process

Step 1

Referral information is collected from parents/carers or school by our admin team and reviewed by our specialist clinicians.

Step 2

The assessment is conducted by a skilled therapist that will utilise a range of standardised assessments, informal observations, informal discussion with parent/carer or teaching staff. Assessment tools are selected by the therapist and are delivered at an appropriate level for the child or young person to access.

Step 3

The clinicians will provide feedback and recommendations for next steps where appropriate.
