Thrive Place Gets to the ROOT of the Feeding, Nutritional & Sensory Challenges


“I can’t get my baby to eat table foods, she gags and vomits when I feed her – I am so frustrated!”

At Thrive Place we understand the challenges parents face when their child struggles with mealtime difficulties, whether it be gagging, pickiness, pocketing food, vomiting, food refusal, chewing or swallowing problems, aspirating or just general mealtime anxiety.

Developed by Thrive Place, The Eat Right Plan™ is a personalized, structured feeding therapy process designed to help children achieve the eating skills they need to thrive. Each plan is designed around your child’s needs, abilities and skills. Through highly-specialized therapy, our dedicated team of therapists will work with your child to develop a healthy relationship with food and eating. We will also give you the tools and training you need to continue the therapy in the comfort of your own home.

“The doctor says my daughter is underweight for her age, I’ve tried everything and I just don’t know how to get her to gain weight.”

The experienced multi-disciplinary team at Thrive Place includes a registered dietitian who advocates  for early and aggressive nutrition therapy and works with the occupational and speech therapists to ensure that nutrition is an integral part of managing symptoms and promoting wellness for children.

“My son hates getting his bath and detests having his teeth brushed, daily routines are such a struggle for us!”

Thrive Place understands the frustration parents face when their child struggles with sensory processing difficulties.

The Good Sense Plan™ is Thrive Place’s treatment approach for children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Through this plan occupational therapists develop a personalized journey that guides your child through active, meaningful, and fun activities at the right time and in the right order to promote appropriate responses and behaviors to the daily sensations our bodies receive. As your child progresses through the The Good Sense Plan™  a major focus of treatment will include continuous education to the family so that parents can learn to engage their child in therapeutic and yet, fun activities at home and in the community.
