Problem Feeding Behaviour

The SOS (Sequential- Oral – Sensory) Approach to Feeding is an effective way to work on problem feeding behaviours.  It focuses on increasing a child’s comfort level by exploring and learning about the different properties of food such as texture, taste, smell and consistency.  The SOS approach allows a child to interact with food in a playful, non-stressful way.

Because feeding is the most complex of human physical task, it is critical that all the possible problem areas are examined when working with children who won’t eat.

The SOS Approach to Feeding was designed and refined by Dr. Kay Toomey. This approach can be used in either a group setting or on an individual basis.




Individual or Group setting of 2-4 children with similar feeding issues.
