Starting solids is an exciting milestone for your infant. It’s also a great opportunity to start good habits for a lifetime of healthy eating.

Feeding Therapy

At Children's, speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists work together to provide the best feeding services for your child. When you to call to schedule an evaluation, our intake coordinator will ask a series of questions to determine if your child should be seen by a speech-language pathologist or an occupational therapist. These therapists work closely with Children's Feeding Clinic and if your child would benefit from a comprehensive, interdisciplinary evaluation, we will provide you with referral information.

For Health Professionals

Children's Physician Access is available 24/7 with a representative on the line throughout the call to assist with referrals, consultations and admissions and to provide general information.
