Share |
Printer Friendly
Each patient and one primary caregiver (parent or legal guardian) are admitted to CHOC Children’s Hospital for 19 days of therapy and treatment for the 19-day inpatient feeding program. This caregiver is t he person who primarily feeds the child the most at home, is with the child for the entire program and participates in the child’s treatment every step of the way. During the program, the child has three therapeutic meal sessions every week day, as well as two or three daily sessions with the primary feeder to practice the skills learned in therapy.
 
The 19-day program is intense yet focused on providing practical skills through play-based feeding therapy to create positive mealtime experiences for both the patient and his or her family.
