The Feeding Program at Our Children’s House is one of the largest inpatient programs in the U.S. and the only multidisciplinary program in Texas that helps children of all ages who struggle to eat.
For more than 20 years, our unique feeding program has helped children improve their ability to eat. Our team, which includes experts from more specialties than almost any other program in the country, can determine the cause of your child’s eating struggles. Whether they have low muscle tone in their jaw and tongue, sensory challenges, or behavioral issues, we can provide the personalized treatment they need.
Our comprehensive inpatient program offers structured treatment that can lead to great progress in a short time. The program includes every type of feeding therapy, from speech therapy for swallowing to counseling for anxiety about food. Some children may need to try new textures of food to expand their palate. Other children may need exercises to improve the strength of their tongue or jaw.
