A less intensive therapeutic group intervention with both an OT and SLP:
- Group size of 5 to 6 children
- Themed circle time. The focus of circle time will include food exposure, building mealtime vocabulary, positive peer interaction, as well as oral preparation, oral motor exercises, and oral strengthening exercises.
- Food Preparation and Meal time within a cooperative, family style experience. Children will be engrossed in the mealtime from beginning to end and encouraged to participate in food preparation, setting the table, serving themselves, and cleaning up following the meal. Children will also be encouraged to develop independent feeding skills. Strategies to empower children to self regulate during mealtimes will be a focus.
