Children who need more intensive treatment than we can provide in the outpatient clinic are seen in our Day Hospital Feeding Program.
Here, we help your child change the behaviors that prevent her from accepting foods in her mouth and learning to eat.
We also provide occupational and speech therapy to support your child's treatment goals.
Our program runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, so you can return home in the evenings and on weekends. The usual Day Hospital Feeding Program stay is four weeks. After your child completes the program, our team will see him in outpatient clinic to insure that his progress continues.
