WHAT WORDS DO YOU USE TO TALK ABOUT FOOD?

Expand your child's ability to try new flavors by using simple but creative word choices that take the focus away from likes and dislikes, and wants and don't wants. Consider ways to describe the food itself, rather than your reaction to it. Rather than saying, "Ooohh, I like this!" how about saying, "Ooohh this tastes crunchy and sweet!"



INSTEAD OF SAYING


* Do you like it?

* Do you want it?



TRY SAYING

* Does this taste like "more"?


* Is this your choice right now?


* Is that a strong flavor in your mouth?


* Is it time to spit it out?




At Chez Bones School of Canine Cuisine,

We LOVE to have kids spit food out!


Why?

Because it means they put it in their mouth.

OUR SERVICES
20 YEARS AND COUNTING

ARCADIA THERAPY SERVICES is a group of 25 physical, occupational and speech therapists who train hard to provide programs that change the lives of kids and teens with developmental disabilities. 

 

We have been assisting Arizona families with passion and purpose since 1999. Therapy visits are covered through DDD (the Division of Developmental Disabilities) and private pay. We address challenges that result from diagnoses of autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and cognitive disability.

We meet families where real life happens! We typically begin with in-home sessions, to address issues that occur within daily life routines. We then expand outward, to community settings that enable us to help kids grow in countless cool and unexpected ways.

 

We are best known for Impossible Dreams, and our innovative work with kids who struggle with food.
