How time flies – another year is drawing to a close and we at NoTube look back on eventful months, in which we successfully helped many children with eating disorders and tube dependency.
At the beginning of 2018, the time had come at last – NoTube was moving! After days of carrying boxes, cleaning up, cleaning out, and building furniture, we were finally moved into our new accommodations at Lenaugasse 5 in Graz.
Your child is you tube fed and you are looking for a tube weaning program. Many different resources and approaches can be found in the internet and many information found can be confusing. We have collected some crucial advice and important criteria for parents, who seek help for their tube-fed child.
Mealtime is a multisensory experience. Let’s take a closer look at the specific sensory properties that influence our mealtimes to better understand how multisensory input might be influencing the mealtime experience of children.
Despite years of proven clinical expertise and an exceptional publication activity, the NoTube method is sometimes still criticised and inaccurately viewed. We want to respond to the most common rumors and misunderstandings that we have heard about NoTube’s reputation.
By children who were born with an illness or abnormality and/or who exhibit an eating problem or who are fed with a feeding tube, every day is defined by numbers – the child’s weight is measured several times a week, the calorie count of the enteral nutrition is calculated, the quantity of each meal is measured out.
To accommodate the numerous inquiries and requests, we have many events planned again this year. NoTube is also growing and moving in 2018!
What about children whose food repertoire becomes limited to fewer than five options and who, after weeks or even months, can’t allow for even the smallest alterations?
Each month, we will be choosing new topic to explore on our homepage, through social media and in our newsletters. We also start offering Live-chats where it will be possible to ask questions on a range of topics and have our therapists answer.
At NoTube, we’ve had an eventful year in 2016. Most significantly, we now feel even closer to our little patients than ever before. This is due to our new therapy center that enables us to welcome families from all over the world in Graz. This is the story of how this therapy center came to be and what we have learnt from operating it for the past year.
