Verbal Behavior Programming-Assessed with the VB-Mapp and functional skills assessments, children will participate in intensive verbal behavior programming and design tailored to their individual needs.

Our feeding therapists will gather information about your child from our intake paperwork, the parent or guardian who brings the child to the evaluation, and from any assessments or tests they feel are indicated to come up with a plan of care.

They use combined approaches for communication with sign language, picture exchange, device-based approaches etc. depending on what is most appropriate for your child.
