Do you work with children who only eat a limited variety of foods?

Is it more than just a sensory-motor issue, where the child exhibits emotional reactions to food, the table, or the relationship with their caregiver?

Using a deep understanding of the importance of communication, thinking, relationships, emotional well-being, and oral-motor and sensory challenges, FOODTIME™ takes a closer look into the various reasons children have difficulties with eating.

FOODTIME™ is an Evidence-Based Intensive Feeding Program for Picky and Rigid Eaters developed by an OT and SLP at The Floortime Center®, where we have been successfully offering it to families for the last 3 years.
