Handprint Therapies’ ABA Feeding Program
No two ABA feeding therapy sessions look the same with Handprint Therapies. Our board-certified behavior analysts (BCBA) begin by first assessing your child’s unique challenges during feeding periods. We then create tailored ABA feeding programs using data-driven, scientifically-proven strategies designed to help your child develop normal, effective feeding patterns and behaviors. For example, by targeting feeding goals during the typical meal and snack times when your child is most motivated to eat, we improve the success of their ABA feeding therapy. Our behavior therapists are also able to use techniques like reinforcement, shaping, desensitization, and food chaining to increase healthy eating.
Improving Feeding Skills Through ABA Therapy
While your child’s ABA feeding intervention and therapy will ultimately be dependent on their specific challenges, our programs are designed to help them learn the age-appropriate skills and behaviors they need for mealtime such as
- Expanding Diets
- Increasing Volume
- Reducing Vomiting
- Using Utensils
- Cup Drinking
At Handprint Therapies, your child will have a full team of professionals working together on their feeding goals. We believe that the easiest and most effective way to address your child’s feeding challenges is often through a multidisciplinary approach. Our ABA feeding programs actively collaborate with our speech and occupational therapists, so we can target each challenge from multiple disciplines and develop a fully comprehensive treatment plan.
