Feeding and Swallowing Clinic

For Students

Prospective Students,

Thank you for your interest in Feeding Clinic @ the CED!

What is Feeding Clinic?

Our multidisciplinary team provides comprehensive assessments for pediatric patients experiencing feeding difficulties. Here at the CED our feeding team consists of licensed professionals from multiple disciplines, including:

  • speech pathology
  • nutrition
  • social work
  • psychology
  • occupational therapy

Every clinic appointment is unique and designed to specifically meet the individual needs of each child and family we serve.

How are students involved?

We welcome students to observe clinic. In fact, we have multiple students involved in clinic each week. Students here at Feeding Clinic represent a variety of majors including speech pathology, social work, nutrition, occupational therapy, physical therapy, medicine, pharmacy, education, counseling, nursing, psychology, and early intervention.

Feeding Clinic also supports CED LEND trainees. LEND trainees are graduate students who have been selected to participate in the national Leadership Education in Neurodevelopment and Related Disabilities program. LEND trainees work closely with clinic mentors to develop and hone their interdisciplinary clinical competence. For more information on the LEND program at the CED, visit LEND.
