OUR MISSION

picture of therapist and child

The mission of The Up to 3 Early Intervention Program is to promote the development of children, under the age of 3, who have any type of disability or developmental delay and to provide services to children and families living in Cache, Box Elder, and Rich Counties.

These services address the needs of families and children and can include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language therapy, eating and nutrition services, hearing and vision consultation, and specialized instruction for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

PRACTICAL HINTS FOR NUTRITION
This information is from the July 2018 Feeding Conference. Chances are this information will apply to you at some point or another.

  • Calories-  Kids need calories. You can calorie-pack foods for an underweight child by adding:
  1. cream cheese to pasta sauce
  2. egg and milk to pancake batter
  3. protein powder or peanut butter to fruit smoothies
  4. Breakfast Essential powder to milk
  • Sippy cups-  Sippy cups can be difficult for a child to suck on especially if a child has feeding difficulties and decreased endurance. Instead, use open cups and straws.
  • Colic- It is not behavior problem. There is likely something going on in the baby's body. A GI (gastrointestinal) specialist can help find what may be going on and treat it.
  • Gas pains- They are usually worse in the afternoon and evening. They can be reduced by not giving babies foods that are high in sugar (like juice and lactose-which is found in cow's milk) and by using Simethicone drops at noon feeding and feedings after that (3-4 times a day).
  • Doctor visits- When going to see a GI specialist, before your appointment write down your specific concerns, your child's eating history and medical history. 

Hints from Dr Louis Mizell (pediatric gastrointerologist) and Chris Pratt (NICU occupational therapist)
