I use a responsive, family-centered, trust-based approach to feeding therapy. A child should lead the learning process and trust that adults will offer appropriate experiences to support him or her along the way. My treatment approach includes a strong focus not only on building a child’s skills, but on empowering parents and caregivers with knowledge. I believe judgment has no place in this process. My mission is to help families fill mealtimes with joy, connection, and nourishment.
Our diverse team of clinicians believe in creating positive mealtime experiences while utilizing a responsive feeding approach. We integrate play whenever possible, facilitate self regulation, and address postural control. We know caregiver involvement and support are important to longterm success.
We have 2 locations in Chicago and 1 in Downers Grove. We also offer individual nutrition services.
Courtney Chapman, Ltd. provides family-centered, responsive feeding therapy for infants, toddlers, and children. We understand that feeding involves the entire family, so we prioritize partnering with families and caregivers to foster children’s’ independence and positive mealtime experiences. We specialize in treating children with feeding aversions and oral-motor skill delays.
It is completely dependent on the child- which I believe aligns best with the responsive feeding approach! However, we have therapists who are trained in SOS feeding, Beckmann treatments.
We believe in a comprehensive approach to the WHOLE child!
We provide dental care for infants and children in a caring environment. Our office specialized in releasing tethered oral ties (TOTs) for infants and children in the states of Iowa and surrounding states.
I teach positive feeding and mealtime experiences through a family-centered approach. I use responsive feeding techniques and base therapy on clinical research as well as experience. I enjoy tailoring feeding therapy to each individual family and assist families in connecting and communicating with each other to make eating fun and enjoyable for all!
