Overview

This volume explores certain problems typical to disabled children in the context of normal feeding development in infants and covers a wide variety of complications that may result. The authors describe the clinical and nutritional assessment and the application of diagnostic imaging techniques in the evaluation of such children. The core of the volume covers the methods of management of these children's problems and ranges from oro-motor therapy to various techniques for enteral feeding. Finally, the authors explore the ethical issues raised by the vigorous intervention needed to improve the nutritional state of severely disabled children, together with the need to provide ongoing psychological support for their caregivers.
