Community Services Group, Lancaster, PA, USA.
OBJECTIVE: A structured intervention was used to teach chewing to two children with special needs. Neither child had a history of chewing or eating high-textured food.
METHOD: The intervention combined oral-motor and behavior components to teach chewing. A multiple baseline design was used to evaluate treatment effectiveness.
RESULTS: Both children improved their chewing skills while increasing the texture of foods eaten and the variety of foods eaten.
CONCLUSION: This structured intervention could be used to teach chewing to a range of children who did not acquire this skill during normal development.
