Nourishing Growth, Expanding Tastes

Welcome to our Feeding Groups at LEAP Centre, a nurturing program designed to assist restrictive eaters. Our feeding groups are a collaborative effort led by our compassionate occupational therapists and speech therapists, dedicated to helping children overcome challenges with eating and develop a healthier relationship with food.

About Our Feeding Groups

Comprehensive Approach: Our program integrates techniques from occupational therapy and speech therapy to address the various aspects of feeding, including sensory sensitivities, oral motor skills, and behavioral strategies.

Sensory-Friendly Environment: We create a sensory-friendly and non-judgmental environment where children can explore different textures, tastes, and smells at their own pace.

Skill Development: Our therapists work on developing the necessary skills for eating, such as chewing and swallowing techniques, utensil use, and coping strategies for new foods.

Group Dynamics: Children benefit from the group setting, where they can see their peers engage with food, learn from one another, and gain confidence through shared experiences.

Family Involvement: We believe that support at home is crucial. Parents are provided with strategies and tips to encourage positive eating habits and make mealtimes more enjoyable at home.

Benefits of Joining Our Feeding Groups

Join Our Journey to Joyful Eating!

Our Feeding Groups are designed for children who experience difficulties with eating, whether due to sensory challenges, oral motor difficulties, or behavioral factors. If your child is a picky eater or faces challenges during mealtimes, our group offers a supportive and effective pathway to healthier, happier eating habits. Space in our groups is limited, so we encourage you to contact us to enroll your child in this transformative program at LEAP Centre!
