OTA Wakefield is now accepting referrals for our 12 week Feeding Program ages 3-5, 6-9, and 9+.
The goal of our Feeding program is to help children discover the JOY OF EATING!
Our Sensory based program places emphasis on reducing fear and anxiety around new food, improving oral motor skills necessary for chewing and, swallowing, oral sensory exploration and sensory regulation while providing positive interactions with foods and smells within a peer group. This program is designed to increase food repertoire and generalize skills learned for biting, chewing and swallowing while enjoying the sensory aspects of food. Children will improve their sensory, oral motor and nutritional diet through fun cooking and eating experiences.
Criteria for admission include ability to participate in a small group and ability to safely chew and swallow table foods.
Please talk to your Therapist to determine if this would be an appropriate setting for your child if interested.
Screening may be required to determine appropriateness for admission.
Please call (781)245-4446 if interested.
