Join us for an hour of food exploration in two sets of different groups every Tuesday or Thursday. We’ll have a great time prepping, cooking and exploring foods to make food time a fun time. We welcome all children who are working on oral-motor skills, sensory aversions or medically complex feeding needs including decreasing feeding tube dependency.

The Food Adventurers will be led by a Speech-Language Pathologist with consultation from Occupational Therapists and Psychologists. All ages welcome.

This group, for children 2-3 years of age, will focus on participating in circle time and engaging in play-time activities that promote communication, early problem solving and following directions. This group is playful and fun, often focusing on a particular theme to enhance vocabulary development and to increase a child’s opportunity to use language within a group setting. Children can practice the social rules of communication such as turn-taking, gestures and body language. Led by Speech-Language Pathologist Allison Liwanag.
