Frequency & Duration of Feeding Therapy

Jennifer Dahms, M.S., CCC-SLP

August 6, 2012


Question

How frequent are the recommended sessions for feeding therapy and what is the usual duration?

Answer

I see children for 45 minutes at a time and my recommendation for therapy is going to be dependent upon the child.  I don't want to say I have a set-in-stone frequency recommendation.  I usually see kids every other week if we're just working on problem eating behaviors with no swallowing issues or oral motor issues. This leaves family time to work on the techniques at home and to get a good handle on them to see if they are working and if they are getting good practice  before coming to the next therapy session.  We then talk about how things went and update the home program from there.
