The Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Program at The University of Alabama Speech and Hearing Center strives to provide children and their families with the skills necessary to maximize feeding, swallowing and nutrition in order to support age appropriate growth and development.
We offer assessment and treatment of pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders. Our comprehensive assessment looks at medical history, feeding skill development, sensory processing patterns, and disruptive feeding behaviors. Treatment focuses on the whole child and is provided utilizing skill development, sensory integration, and/or behavioral approaches. Parent counseling to aid in the carryover of treatment strategies into the natural environment is a part of each treatment plan.
