Are you searching for a speech therapist near me? Feeding issues are common in preemies once home, and parents are often puzzled as to when they should seek further help for their baby. The best time for a feeding evaluation is anytime a mom or caretaker is worried about the baby. Moms read their little ones better than anyone and physicians sometimes do not have the time to see how the baby feeds. Similarly, difficulties swallowing can keep you, or a family member, from their place at the dinner table. Along with persistent clearing of the throat, coughing, & feeling of food sticking, these can all be signs of dysphagia (dis-FAY-ja). Our clinic offers a complete dysphagia screening & treatment program, including VitalStim Therapy – an FDA-cleared therapy program using neuromuscular electrical stimulation. Cleveland Feeding & Swallowing Center has a 95% success rate with highly challenged patients.
