Pediatric Feeding Disorders Program
Live Oak Children’s Center is one of very few facilities in Louisiana to offer empirically supported outpatient feeding treatment to children with feeding disorders. We provide interdisciplinary assessment and treatment of infants and children. Our team of professionals includes; psychologists, board certified behavior analysts, speech language pathologists and occupational therapists who have received specialized training in the area of feeding. Our interdisciplinary team works together to increase both volume and variety of foods consumed as well as decreasing problem behaviors associated with mealtimes. Consultations with pediatric gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, nutritionists and other medical specialists are made as needed. We also work with families to coordinate referrals to intensive feeding programs if the child requires a more intensive level of treatment.
