Feeding Skills
The child who is physically involved will most likely require a number of adaptations in order to increase his/her independence. Your school occupational therapist and speech therapist will most likely collaborate on a plan for feeding and train you in use of equipment and strategies.
Some helpful equipment might include:
scoop dish
adapted spoons
splints, universal cuff (to hold spoon in hand)
nosey cup
Nuk brush or electric toothbrush (to prepare mouth for feeding)
