Early intervention Feeding Group

The Early Invention Feeding Group will be comprised of 1 speech-language pathologist and up to 4 children accompanied by 1 caregiver each. Activities will be designed around a sensory-motor approach to feeding while incorporating opportunities for functional language learning and use. Caregivers will be given a list of tools as well as a schedule of required foods prior to the first session. Each session will begin with a sensory-based activity, working towards more structured motor-based activities, including straw drinking, open cup drinking, spoon-feeding, chewing, biting from a whole, and more based on the needs of the participants. Expectations of child behavior will be tailored for each individual (ex: touching pudding versus wiping the pudding on the child’s mouth). Parents will be coached through exercises by the speech-language pathologist through both verbal explanations and models. The caregivers will be encouraged to ask questions and share ideas amongst the group. The last 15 minutes of the sessions will be spent fielding any questions and cleaning.

Schedule:
Start – 20 mins: Background on targeted skills; Set Up; Sensory Play
20-45 mins: Motor Based Activities (e.g., straw drinking, open cup drinking, spoon-feeding, etc.)
45-60 mins: Clean up; Questions
