SOS Fussy Eating Groups – Sequential Oral Sensory

  • SOS is an evidence-based approach to working with children who are fussy eaters. 

    The program is delivered in a small, structured group setting for 8-10 weeks. Groups can be offered during school Terms. 

    This group program aims to increase children’s tolerance of exposure to new foods and building oral motor skills. Parents attend this group with their children and watch the therapy room via a live stream, during this time education is provided by one of the SOS trained therapists. 

    A compulsory information session precedes the group based program. The information session aims to address:

    • the SOS approach 
    • explore reasons why their child may be having difficulties with feeding and eating 
    • what can be done at home 

    The SOS program can also be modified and conducted in the home environment with an SOS based therapist.
