Oral Sensory feeding program of The Picky Eaters Clinic Jakarta Indonesia

The Picky Eaters Clinic Jakarta Indonesia is proud to offer Feeding Therapy

Oral Sensory to Feeding Problems

Oral Sensory feeding program is a non-invasive developmental approach to feeding. It focuses on increasing a child’s comfort level exploring and learning about the different properties of foods, including texture, smell, taste and consistency.

The Oral Sensory approach allows a child to interact with food in a playful, non-stressful way.

The Oral Sensory approach follows a hierarchy to feeding, beginning with the basic ability to tolerate food in the room, in front of him/her, touching and eventually tasting and eating foods.

Parent education and involvement is an important part of this feeding approach. A therapist works directly with the parents while they are watching each feeding session to learn this approach to feeding.

Parents learn to identify physical signs and “body language” to identify when the child is over stimulated and to assist with setting up the home program.
