EPISODE 44 - Dr. Sam Goldman - for children with sensory issues, eating is hard
When your child struggles to eat a variety of food, it can be frustrating and overwhelming. You might feel like you’ve tried it all, and just don’t know what else to do. Maybe, you’ve even been told it’s your fault because you don’t “force them” to eat.
Can I ease your mind a bit? The truth is, that for children with “sensory issues,” eating is hard. And even though your child may want to eat to make you happy, something in their body just feels icky. You’re not a bad parent, and you’re not alone.
You just need the right tools so you can confidently help your child learn to explore and try new foods.
And I have the tools you need. My online course teaches you the secrets you need to help your child explore and try new foods.
Hi! I’m Sam (or as my client’s know me “Dr. Sam) and this is my rescue dog Wolfie. I’m on a mission to bring the magic back into mealtime by teaching parents how to help their children with feeding difficulties explore and try new foods without the mealtime battles.
I’ve spent the last 8 years working as an occupational therapist in the hospital system helping families improve their child’s development and eating. Throughout my time as an occupational therapist I’ve worked with countless families in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), pediatric care unit (PICU), and cardiac intensive care unit (CICU), as well as in outpatient clinics.
The more I worked with the children, the more I began to notice that parents weren’t getting the education they needed. While the children were doing great in therapy sessions, parents struggled to carryover the techniques at home – because they didn’t really understand what they were doing and why.
I know how frustrating it can be to worry that you’re not doing the right thing for your child. So I’ve taken what I’ve learned about feeding difficulties and the sensory system and packaged it into an online educational course for parents, to empower you with the tools you need to overcome mealtime battles.
