Skills on the Hill

Feeding babies is such a great task that challenges many parents and caregivers. As these little ones start to grow and develop, babies are weaned from breastfeeding or bottle feeding. Parents introduce table, solid foods thus sucking gradually transitions to chewing. Kids are taught active eating - they pick their food, put it in their mouth, chew, and swallow. Pacifiers are then replaced by regular utensils. As we know, this stage of development is not easy. Good thing there's a lot of innovative equipments, technology, and resources to help us in this area! Check out this adorable "fork" for babies that could encourage babies/infants to start eating food with utensils the proper way! Let's be creative! 🙂

Child Centered
We work closely with families using a team approach so that skills and progress can be generalized across environments. Our therapists aim at using a child-directed approach in treatment to enable maximum motivation and effort from the child.

We provide private therapy in our clinic for infants through middle school age children. We also provide school-based therapy at several DC Charter schools for children from preschool through high school. Activities are presented at the "just right challenge" and the level of difficulty is gradually increased as progress is made so that the child sees therapy as play instead of work.
