S.O.S. Feeding Therapy Program

What is the S.O.S approach to feeding therapy?


Based on and grounded philosophically in the “normal” developmental steps, stages and skills of feeding found in typically developing children, the SOS Approach focuses on increasing a child’s comfort level by exploring and learning about the different properties of food. The program allows a child to interact with food in a playful, non-stressful way, beginning with the ability to tolerate the food in the room and in front of him/her, then moving on to managing the smell of the foods, learning about how foods feel on the body and in their mouth, and then enjoying tasting and eating new foods following the Steps to Eating.


What is the S.O.S approach not?


  • The S.O.S approach is not flooding therapy, at no point is a child ever offered reward contingent on eating, coerced, or forced to eat.  


What is the format of S.O.S Therapy?


  • Parent education

  • 1:1 sessions with the child

  • Group format therapy – when deemed appropriate by the clinician
