The SOS approach to feeding is a trans-disciplinary program for assessing and treating children with feeding difficulties and weight/growth problems. The program integrates posture, sensory, motor, behavioural/learning, social/emotional medical and nutritional factors to comprehensively evaluate and manage children with feeding/growth problems. It is based on, and grounded philosophically in the ‘normal’ developmental steps, stages and skills of feeding found in typically developing children. Treatment uses these steps to create a systematic desensitisation hierarchy of skills and behaviours necessary for each child to progress to eating a variety of textures and tastes. Groups aim to teach children to have a positive interaction with food in a fun way, learn mealtime routine and cues for eating, decrease resistance to touching, tasting and swallowing food, increase the range of foods a child will try and increase the volume of food ingested.
