My two areas of specialty in occupational therapy are sensory-motor processing and feeding therapy. Often the two areas are related.
I have been trained in the Beckman Oral Motor Protocol for assessing and treating oral motor skills, which are foundational for manipulation of food by the lips, tongue and jaw.
The approach that I have been trained in and use during feeding therapy is the SOS approach developed by Dr. Kay Toomey.
If you have concerns regarding your child’s feeding skills, do not hesitate to contact me.
