      What Sensory Therapists Can Teach Us About Feeding Picky Kids

      “Piatak and Carraccia’s FED approach is grounded in a single, fundamental principle: The goal is not to simply get food into a child at any given meal, but rather to reach a point where a child eats because she or he is intrinsically motivated to do so. This is a long- term goal for lifelong behavior change, and as such, may take a long period of time to achieve. Progress is gradual and taken in very incremental steps.” - U.S. News & World Report

SHAHV is a professional association comprised of local speech-language pathologists and audiologists from Dutchess, Orange, Sullivan and Ulster counties within New York State.

Mission: to provide resources to speech-language pathology and audiology professionals in the above counties to facilitate optimal evaluation and treatment of individuals with communication challenges. Particularly, SHAHV is dedicated to arranging continuing education opportunities and encouraging a strong network of professionals to foster cooperative learning. The association is run by volunteers from both professions.
