CEU Course Description
An occupational therapist's scope of practice for feeding and eating varies depending on the child's concerns. Children with medical needs may need modified diets and adaptive tools to assist with feeding. Kids with sensory problems may benefit from desensitization to reduce tactile defensiveness and improve tolerance of various food textures. An OT's intervention in pediatric feeding and eating can overlap with the role of a speech-language pathologist. The differentiation between the two is essential for understanding how OTs can effectively help children in this area.
