Our Experienced Pediatric Therapists Work Closely With You, Your Family and Other Medical Professionals.

Whether you need to wean your child from tube feedings or help him transition to first foods, the experts at JCFS Chicago are here to help.

The video above is of a sample feeding session. Feeding issues come in many different packages; generally we categorize these as oral-motor, sensory aversion, medical or behavioral needs.  Oral-motor problems are those which deal with moving and coordinating the muscle movements for eating.  Sensory aversions are over-reactions to certain textures, tastes, smells or temperatures.  Medical feeding problems may result from a larger diagnosis such as long term G-tube placement or a neurological issue like Rett Syndrome.
