Moving Ahead with Food: Matching Oral Motor Skills and Food Textures - English
A food texture progression chart for infants and children based on oral motor skills instead of age!
This innovative chart helps parents match the types of food textures to oral motor and chewing skills. Gone is the stigma of concern about age-related milestones, which is especially helpful for families of children with Down syndrome and related disabilities. Focus on your child's strengths and offering foods that match those skills using this developmentally based chart.
The chart also includes tips of foods to offer and indications that your child is ready to try the "next step" based on their skills.
