*Currently there are no Fussy Eating groups scheduled for 2021. We do welcome expressions of interest for 2022.*
Based on the
principles of the SOS (Sequential-Oral-Sensory)
Approach to fussy eating, this group program aims to
increase children’s tolerance of exposure to new foods and building oral motor
skills. SOS is an evidence-based approach to working with children who are fussy eaters.
A compulsory parent information session precedes the group based program. The information session aims to address:
The parent information session is run as a group program at RCH ECIS and is also available as an online recording.
Once a family has completed the parent information session, the parent/s and child can attend the group program. The parent/s will watch the therapy
room via a live stream.
The program is delivered in a small, structured group setting for 8-10 weeks. Groups are offered during school terms.
If a family is unable to attend the group program or RCH ECIS determine that an individual program would better meet the child's needs, the Fussy Eating program can be modified and conducted in the home environment with an SOS trained therapist.
