The clinicians at SCSS are knowledgeable about OMDs and how abnormal movement/resting posture of the tongue, lips, cheeks, and jaw effect the development of speech and feeding. All evaluations include a comprehensive orofacial myofunctional assessment including assessing for tethered oral tissues (tongue, lip, and buccal ties.)
SCSS has both Speech-Language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists that have completed specialized training in pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders and have experience with infants, toddlers, and children with a variety of feeding difficulties and medical complexities from tracheostomy and G-tubes to orofacial and sensory/behavioral feeding disorders.

Therapy focuses on promoting independence and functional participation in day to day activities including but not limited to play, dressing, self-feeding, bathing, sleep routines, fine motor and visual motor skills, gross motor skills, handwriting, and sensory processing skills.
