My guest this week is Dr. Kay A. Toomey, a Pediatric Psychologist who has worked with children who struggle to eat for almost 30 years. She has developed the SOS Approach to Feeding as a family-centered program for assessing and treating children with feeding problems. Dr. Toomey speaks nationally and internationally about her approach and also acts as a consultant to Gerber Products. Dr. Toomey helped form The Children’s Hospital – Denver’s Pediatric Oral Feeding Clinic, as well as, the Rose Medical Center’s Pediatric Feeding Center. She previously co-chaired the Pediatric Therapy Services Department at Rose Medical Center prior to entering private practice. Currently, Dr. Toomey is the President of Toomey & Associates, Inc., and acts as a Clinical Consultant to the Feeding Clinic at STAR Institute.
In this episode, Dr. Toomey and I discuss the challenges that parents face with picky eaters and problem feeders and how they can address and treat those issues. Dr. Toomey presents a thorough breakdown showing how and when feeding problems begin for children and sheds light on resolving these issues with proven methods through her SOS Approach to feeding.
