Not being able to accomplish life’s basic tasks can be frustrating and embarrassing.
The experienced and compassionate occupational therapists at the Cleveland Feeding and Swallowing Center can help return dignity and independence to your life.

No two occupational patients respond to the same type of occupational therapy in the same way.
Your occupational struggles may result from stroke, injury, surgery, or a medical condition.
Perhaps your child has a developmental delay or birth defect that requires ongoing pediatric occupational therapy.
Or, you have a child who just falls behind their peers when it comes to using scissors, writing, or feeding and could benefit from short-term early pediatric occupational therapy interventions.
Our occupational therapy incorporates strengthening, stretching, and cognitive development to create a customized treatment plan to meet your specific needs, abilities, and goals.
The Cleveland Feeding and Swallowing Center’s occupational therapy program utilizes many strategies to improve strength, precision, and functionality.
Specific areas where our interventions are most effective include helping you to independently:
Our treatment exercises often include using a lock and key, picking up small items with tweezers, buttoning and zippering, opening and closing containers, and using small gadgets such as a can opener, pencil sharpener, or remote control.
We also provide interventions in the area of fine motor skills by improving the coordination of small muscles in movement with the eyes, hands, and fingers. Therapy includes activities such as: writing, tying shoes, turning door knobs, using phones, and much more.
At the Cleveland Feeding and Swallowing Center, we find value and enjoyment in establishing genuine, long-term connections with our patients. These connections are a key factor in accomplishing your occupational therapy goals.
However, we don’t stop caring for you when you’re able to perform life’s basic tasks. Our occupational therapy is designed to keep you growing and expanding your abilities even after you leave our center.
Our therapists work with your family to ensure everyone is playing a role in your occupational therapy development and success. We review the set up and safety of your home to determine if modifications are needed. And, our therapists create a customized home exercise program that will be easy to follow on your own.
In addition to occupational therapy, the Cleveland Feeding and Swallowing Center provides a number of exceptional services, including:
