SOS Approach To Feeding:
The SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) approach to feeding program is an effective way to address problematic feeding behaviors in a variety of settings.
The SOS approach addresses the “whole child” (i.e. organ development, sensory, oral motor, muscles, learning/behavior). The SOS approach focus is on the child’s exploration and learning about different properties of food, and allows the child to interact with food in a playful, non-stressful way (moving on to touching, kissing, tasting, eating food) (adapted from www.sosapproach-conferences.com)
Please be sure to ask your therapist about purchasing weighted blankets, listening CDs, Interactive Metronome program, thera-Band, and any of the sensori-motor equipment that will facilitate your child’s treatment and well being.
