Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Pathologists at Thinkering Kids are trained in DIR® Floortime Model and the Sequential-Oral-Sensory (S.O.S.) Approach to Feeding.
Following these approaches, our therapists get children ready to increase the types of food they eat, and resolve other feeding challenges they face.
Your trusting, loving and caring relationship with your child has a profound effect on creating positive associations with food and improving their overall eating experience.

Occupational therapists and Speech language pathologists both incorporate NeuroNet across sessions to address client’s individual goals related to motor coordination, letter and number recall, writing, and reading fluency to allow for greater independence and success in the classroom.
