I utilize the SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) Approach to Feeding, as well as other bits and pieces from different wonderful feeding courses and oral motor development courses I have taken along the way. Also, the learning and experience that happened by seeing my peers and mentors work with families and children at mealtime has been instrumental in my pursuit of best practice feeding therapy.
As I look back through my books today, I came across a wonderful and true quote when talking about feeding difficulties:
“The most important determinant of a child’s liking for a particular food is the extent to which it is familiar”. – L. Cooke (2007)
I find this to be true! And how wonderful that we who target feeding challenges know a way to help! And most importantly, know how to empower families to help their children finally eat!
