Feeding and Swallowing Disorders Program

The Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Disorders Program at CDRC serves children from birth to 21 years of age who are experiencing feeding and swallowing challenges.

We treat children with a variety of feeding and swallowing problems. These problems may be due to medical issues including prematurity, neurological, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, cardiac, genetic, as well as acquired conditions.

We serve those who may have difficulty chewing or swallowing. In addition, we help identify and treat behavioral problems related to feeding, such as; food refusal, feeding aversion, poor weight gain, and difficulty advancing with new food textures. We also provide care for those patients who are transitioning from tube feeding to eating by mouth.
