Founded by Valerie Gent, Let's Eat! Paediatric Speech Pathology is a Newcastle based Private Paediatric Feeding intervention service for babies and children from birth to adolescence.

Feeding difficulties in babies and children can be very stressful for parents as well as their child. The goal of Let's Eat! is to empower the family to be able to understand and respond to the feeding difficulties their child may present with. Treatment is clinic based but home and school visits can be arranged with an additional travel fee.

Valerie is passionate about feeding difficulties, she loves working with families in a practical and team focused way.

We look forward to working with you too!

If you work in baby feeding then Carly Vaness from Babble & Munch Speech Pathology is a great course to attend. She is presenting in Sydney in late September.

Between our course in March which looks at:

- gagging on lumps/delayed oral motor skills and
- fussy eating/restricted eating in older children including ASD and other diagnosis including Down Syndrome and Kabuki syndrome,
- joint presentations with a Doctor (allergies), Dietitian (nutrition), OT (motor planning and sensory) and psychologist (anxiety)

While Carly’s course looks at the younger age group

- infant baby assessments,
- how to do an oral muscle assessment
-tongue tie assessment and treatment
- gagging on lumps

✔️ you will have all bases of paediatric feeding covered.

I went to Carly’s course a few years ago and found all of her templates very useful especially if you’re beginning in the world of feeding and not sure where to start.

Spent the morning in a wonderful playgroup today talking about fussy eating and feeding difficulties - Hippy Eastlakes.

This supportive playgroup is fabulous in helping children get ready for school. It also supports parents with knowing how to work with their child in play and structured tasks. I couldn’t speak more highly of them- http://www.resourcingparents.nsw.gov.au/Event/View/18324/hippy-eastlakes

Are you finding that even after doing feeding courses, you are not getting the success you want with your clients?

Well this is the course for you- a practical case study based course showcasing all the feeding programs available and how we apply them in our caseload to reach the feeding goals families set.

This course is different to other courses - it’s filled with real case videos and practical therapy strategies within the therapy framework of feeding therapy.

See you there! 🥬🍅🍚 Val and Debbie

BLOG POST UP ... a tricky one that I reached out to colleagues for their tips and tricks. I truly love the professional social media groups that I live in. Thank you to all of you that helped and thank you to my patient for inspiring me to think harder and outside the box to help you.
