Meal Time and Eating
We understand that mealtimes are an important opportunity to spend time together as a family in your busy day. Our occupational therapists will support you through this activity. This may include self-feeding, sitting in a highchair, chair or assistive technology needs.
About this Activity
We develop your child's independence and participation in meal times. This includes a comprehensive assessment of meal time challenges and then working to build strategies to achieve your goals into your meal time routines. This may include working directly with your child, showing you or your child things to try and observing you and your child practising to give you feedback. We work with you to develop a plan for how you will practice in between sessions to maximise learning opportunities for your child.
