Health and Nutrition
SESOBEL has quality medical facilities and highly qualified staff at its centre to provide the children with the regular care they need.
SESOBEL prevents disability-related nutritional disorders ranging from severe undernutrition to morbid obesity. Children or adults with physical disabilities, multiple disabilities or progressive illnesses are at high risk of developing swallowing disorders that lead to undernutrition. A multidisciplinary team made up of doctors, speech therapists and dieticians is required to diagnose eating disorders as well as the management, which is important to avoid complications such as enteral feeding. Similarly, obesity among young people with disabilities, such as those with Down’s syndrome, puts them at risk of developing medical problems. Prevention of these problems is important through a healthy, varied and diversified diet.
SESOBEL provides parents with information on healthy eating through parental guidance and training.
SESOBEL welcomes different types of disabilities: motor, intellectual (including Down’s syndrome), multiple disabilities and autism. SESOBEL offers care adapted to the needs of these children and young people. Their nutrition is under the supervision of a dietician who makes sure that each child receives an adequate diet (ground food, diet for diabetes, obesity…).
