Feeding Program

At Beach Kids Therapy Center, we offer a comprehensive feeding program, which includes individual feeding therapy and feeding groups to help each child reach their highest potential in their oral motor and feeding skills.  Our therapist are trained in treating all components of feeding, including medically complex feeders. in addition, we offer Vitalstim Therapy as part of our feeding program and have partnered with dietitians to maximize nutritional intake.
