When Picky Eating becomes a Problem: 

A Sensory Approach to Eating

Are you a parent of a child with feeding difficulties?  In this free informational session for parents, ChildServe therapists will be describing the S.O.S. Approach to feeding.   Dr. Kay Toomey’s Sequential Oral Sensory (S.O.S.) Approach, is a program for assessing and treating children with feeding difficulties and weight/growth problems.  S.O.S. trained therapists will highlight these basic principles: posture, sensory, motor, behavioral/learning, medical and nutritional factors.  In addition, a parent will share her perspective with the S.O.S. approach for her daughter.
