“I just want my child to eat like other kids.”

Hi, I am Nicola Pratt. I have been called the "Food Whisperer" and "Feeding Guru", but in truth, I am a fully qualified and experienced Speech-Language Pathologist dedicated to helping your child with feeding issues. For over 20-years I have treated thousands of children of all ages with feeding and swallowing disorders. I have practiced in hospitals, NICUs, clinics, and schools; however, my primary focus is working with children and families in their homes.

FeedingPlus is an online clinic offering convenient telehealth feeding therapy in the safety of your home.
