Feeding Therapy

Family-Centered
Supports the child’s ability to participate in and develop skills for increased independence in the family’s day-to-day routines at home and in the community.
Routines-Based

Feeding is one of the most important activities that children engage in, and yet for some children it can be one of the most challenging.   Jennifer has a passion for supporting families in feeding their children and helping families develop positive and healthy mealtimes together.  With a more positive mealtime experience your child will develop a healthy attitude towards eating.  Better feeding  will lead your child to establish stronger roots which supports growth in all other areas!  


Jennifer is able to provide highly skilled feeding therapy and parent support to help you and your child have a more positive mealtime experience! She has completed advanced practice training and is certified in feeding and swallowing (SWC).
