Feeding Treatment Using the TR-eatTM Model
Individual consultation is available for parents or therapists with children presenting with feeding challenges. Ongoing therapy may be recommended and we can help you find resources that will meed your needs.
Outpatient feeding therapy using a transdisciplinary model would typically be 1-3 times per week for 45-60 minute sessions. Outpatient interventions provide direct care for the child with the intention of teaching the parents how to implement the plan in the home setting. This is recommended for children with mild to moderate feeding difficulties. It is also useful to shape basic skills for children with severe feeding challenges to prepare for a more intensive type of treatment approach. Outpatient therapy might also be recommended following the intensive program to carry over progress and continue to build skill development.
Intensive feeding therapy using a transdisciplinary model typically includes a higher frequency of 3-4 therapy sessions each day concentrated into a brief period of consecutive weeks. Therapy may be offered daily up to 5 days per week for multiple weeks. Intensive therapy is appropriate for children with moderate to severe feeding difficulties, complex medical or social situations, or who live outside of commuting distance to a therapy location.
