A child with a feeding disorder may demonstrate difficulties managing liquids or transitioning to solid foods. The child may also only eat a few foods, avoiding entire food groups, textures or liquids necessary for development. A speech language pathologist is able to work on the oral-motor mechanism to increase musculature and strength, along with behavioral strategies, to be able to tolerate new foods or liquids. An occupational therapist is able to use sensory and behavioral techniques for those that have texture aversions or avoid entire food groups.
