  • How does OT help with picky eating?
    Occupational therapy explores the variety of ways in which each one of our sensory systems reacts or overreacts to food. Visual components such as color and shape are critical to consider. Some children will eat only one color scheme of foods or certain shapes of foods. Textures, smells, and flavors of foods are also important sensory qualities to assess. Some children may seek potent foods such as a spicy chip with no reaction. In contrast, there are children who avert from having yogurt or any form of puree touch their hands or mouth.
  • My child is exposed to English and Spanish, so why do I need a bilingual therapy evaluation?
    It is important to be evaluated in all languages that the person is exposed to. For multilingual individuals, you may understand the concept in one language but not the other. For example understanding the word "zapato" but not "shoe." It is imperative that all multilingual individuals be assessed in both languages as only assessing in one language can yield inaccurate results.
