At the Aspen Center, located in the heart of Apex, NC, our dedication to pediatric care has been unwavering for over 18 years. A significant aspect of our commitment is reflected in our specialized feeding therapy, a program that has brought hope and solutions to numerous families.

Feeding, an essential part of a child’s growth and development, can sometimes present unique challenges. From newborns struggling with basic swallowing to older children grappling with texture sensitivities, our feeding therapy addresses a wide range of issues. Our team of specialized feeding and swallowing therapists employs individualized techniques tailored to each child’s specific needs, ensuring a comprehensive and compassionate approach.

The intersection of feeding therapy with our speech therapy services is noteworthy. The skills required for clear speech and effective communication, such as oral motor development, are closely linked to feeding abilities. Our pediatric speech-language pathologists collaborate with feeding therapists to provide a holistic approach, enhancing both communication and feeding skills.

In Apex, NC, our expertise in feeding therapy encompasses a broad spectrum of challenges. We work with children who have conditions like apraxia, autism, and other language disorders, understanding that these can often impact feeding and swallowing abilities. Our approach is not just about the physical aspects of eating but also involves nurturing the emotional and social components of feeding.

At the Aspen Center, our goal is to transform mealtime from a challenge into a pleasant experience for both the child and their family. We focus on establishing effective, age-appropriate feeding skills, promoting healthy eating habits, and ensuring that mealtime is a time for nourishment and family bonding.

We take pride in being a part of the Apex community, offering services that make a real difference in the lives of children and families. Our commitment to feeding therapy is unwavering, and we continue to strive for excellence, one child at a time. At Aspen Center, we’re not just feeding bodies; we’re nurturing growth in every sense.
