Physical Competence Interventions

Developmentally Appropriate Diet Modifications

The foods and beverages offered to a child should match their oral-motor skill set. Occasionally, developmental challenges and/or medical conditions may cause a child’s skill set to be behind their chronological age. In these instances, caregivers must be aware of the child’s limitations and provide developmentally appropriate foods and beverages.

Referral Worksheet

Children should be referred to a specialist for treatment if the intervention is beyond their scope of care.
