For over 18 years, the Aspen Center has been at the forefront of pediatric care, providing essential services like feeding therapy to families across the greater Research Triangle Park area, including Cary, NC, Apex, Morrisville, RTP, and New Hill. Our commitment to nurturing the developmental journey of children through specialized feeding therapy is unwavering, as we understand the critical role nutrition plays in a child’s growth and well-being.

Feeding therapy at the Aspen Center is more than just teaching a child to eat; it’s about addressing the complex feeding challenges and swallowing disorders that can hinder a child’s ability to thrive. Our specialized feeding and swallowing therapists work closely with families to create individualized therapy plans tailored to each child’s needs, whether they are facing difficulties due to premature birth conditions, sensory processing disorders, or other medical issues affecting their ability to feed.

Our pediatric speech-language pathologists also play a vital role in our feeding therapy program. They evaluate and treat communication challenges that can often intersect with feeding difficulties, ensuring a comprehensive approach to each child’s development. Our focus spans from enhancing verbal and non-verbal communication systems to fostering language development, speech sound production, and oral motor development.

In addition to addressing the mechanical aspects of feeding, our therapy sessions are designed to make mealtime a positive, stress-free experience for both children and their families. We specialize in tackling a variety of conditions, including apraxia, motor planning issues, autism, and more, always with the goal of establishing effective age-appropriate speech and language skills alongside feeding capabilities.

Serving the Research Triangle Park area, the Aspen Center is dedicated to providing a supportive environment where children can overcome feeding challenges. Our expert team is committed to guiding each child toward achieving feeding independence, enhancing their overall quality of life. By fostering a collaborative relationship with families, we ensure that every child we serve is on a path to nourishing growth and development. Browse our website today to learn more at:
