Our Results

Your child and your situation are unique in some ways, but in other ways, you have so much in common with so many wonderful families around the world. These families knew they had to do something to help their child learn to eat, and even though they were nervous, or at first unsure of whether they should take the step to work with us, they did, and they’ve become a part of the NoTube family.

Our success rate of teaching children to eat is so high because we have experience with just about every situation that’s been encountered surrounding tube dependency. Just take a look at a sampling of the diagnoses of children that we’ve helped. Over 90% of these children have learned to eat on their own without a feeding tube. We can help your child, too.
