Professional services of The Eating School

At School of Eating, we offer many services designed to help you step by step on your journey to a fed and happy baby.

You can choose a one-time form of cooperation, for example therapeutic or nutritional consultations, or a longer-term form, where we comprehensively evaluate and then apply selected therapeutic methods.

Reservation

The Eating School is suitable for a child from 6 months old who:

  • has difficulty manipulating bites in the mouth, chewing, swallowing,
  • Refuses to eat certain types or textures of food and refuses to move to the next “step” on the food ladder (for example, from a mushy diet to a solid diet),
  • Rejects foods of certain tastes, colours, temperatures and is limited in trying new foods and meals,
  • is anxious and irritable at mealtimes,
  • coughs or chokes when eating,
  • has difficulty transitioning from probe to oral feeding,
  • behaves inappropriately during meals (shouts, cries, runs away from the table, throws food away, falls asleep).

How does it work?

  1. Ordering

    You can make an appointment for a comprehensive examination or consultation in the booking system.

  2. Examination

    We will assess your child's current eating situation and set up a form of further cooperation.

  3. Therapy or consultation

    Depending on the nature of the difficulty or where you live, we choose the form of cooperation that will be the most functional solution for you and your child. The recommended number of therapies will be suggested to you after the Comprehensive Examination. Consultations take place as needed.

  4. Aftercare

    After completing therapy, we may see you in longer periods of time to review the phases of your treatment plan.

What do parents say about our work?

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Ludvíčková for everything she does for our son. We have been visiting her since January 2022, when the therapy takes place once a week. During this time, we have moved forward incredibly.

    Our daughter and I have been going to Jitka for occupational therapy for several years. Emča always looks forward to the lessons together. Sometimes they cook together, train self-care... So far, the best therapy for Jitka was the last one, when the canis dog Argi was also present.

    Thank you very much for your wonderful care. Mgr. Ludvíčková is a really great therapist and person. We recommend all ten to everyone. Each child and problem was solved comprehensively, ideas for supplementing the daughter's diet helped us to increase the weight, which the daughter has been struggling with for a long time, due to her disability. We finally found a person who solves the core of the problem and is interested in the child. Nothing is a problem, and thanks to Jitka, we know that everything has a solution and it doesn't have to be the introduction of a PEG, as the doctors want to impose on the parents. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you.

    I can recommend The Eating School with a calm heart and I recommend it everywhere else. We also learned about her by chance and several years ago, when my two-year-old daughter had a big problem with eating and biting..... Jitka, the therapist, was always very nice, she worked very well with my daughter and gave me good advice many times or just she added the waning energy that I usually need when feeding.... Even now we like to come back when there is a food problem..... TOP for me!

    If your child is a picky eater, has various types of disabilities or is on a feeding tube or PEG, try the School of Papany. The kind approach of the therapist Jitka, her willingness and dedication to her mission have already helped many children, including our Adam. It's a journey, it's a process, and it won't change overnight, but it will.

    Professional and at the same time human approach.

    Jitka was recommended to us from early care when we were already on the brink of strength. Her kind and professional approach helped us after the first meeting. After five therapies at home, we don't even know that the little one ever had a problem with food. I definitely highly recommend it.

    Human and professional approach. She explained things to us that no one in the hospital bothered to tell us. Thank you for your help.

Questions and Answers
  • We live outside of Prague, what is the difference between the examination at your place and online?

    If you arrive at The Eating School, we will make you a good coffee. The process and the information obtained are identical.

  • Is it necessary to have an examination to book my child for therapy?

    Yes, therapy is meaningless without an examination. We always have to find out the sources of the difficulties first, only then can we proceed to therapy.

  • Can the examination/therapy be covered by public health care?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible, for the moment The Eating School does not have a contract with any insurance company. However, it is possible to ask foundations and funds for a contribution or financing.

  • On the website you have the option of a home visit, do you also travel outside of Prague?

    Yes, but home visits are very time-consuming, so we can’t do many of them in a week. It depends on the current capacity and time options.

  • How long will it take to see the results of the therapy?

    This is very individual. If you start attending therapy, you have already completed a comprehensive examination, after which the results should already be visible. Therapy will further support the whole process, but it does not replace the work that needs to be done at home during daily eating.
