Pediatric feeding therapy
[Please note that we are currently placing new clients on a priority list for feeding therapy. Insurance patients must have their pediatrician fax their referral to be placed on the priority list]
We use the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) Feeding therapy approach to help children increase their comfort with a variety of foods through play. The SOS Approach engages children in activities to create a fun learning environment while exposing them to the important nutrition groups: proteins, starches, fruits and vegetables.
GO Therapy is committed to excellence in service by offering this evidence based program with strategies and techniques that have proven to be effective in numerous research studies. We will team up by involving you and your family in therapy sessions wherein we will help you understand the “why” of what we do.

It is a transdisciplinary, holistic and family-centered program based on Dr. Toomey’s 30 years of clinical experience in treating children who struggle to eat.
