Feeding Challenges in Young Children: Strategies and Specialized Interventions for Success
Bruns, Deborah A.; Thompson, Stacy D.
Brookes Publishing Company
Young children's feeding issues can be a complex challenge for early childhood professionals, especially since most get little to no training addressing this key developmental area. Now there's a single comprehensive resource that provides early childhood educators and interventionists with specific, practical, research-based guidance on resolving a wide range of feeding issues. Ideal for a wide range of professionals working with young children birth-5 years across school, home, and child care settings, this book-and-CD set gives readers in-depth background information, how-to strategies, and helpful tools for addressing feeding challenges. Integrating the dual perspectives of the authors--a child development expert and an early childhood special education expert--the book helps readers: (1) understand the entire process of feeding development and how feeding affects early childhood development; (2) gain familiarity with variations in feeding contexts, including diverse cultural and at-risk groups and their impact on feeding choices and attitudes; (3) support children with specific feeding issues (see box) with specialized, evidence-based interventions and strategies; (4) learn the basics of screening and assessment procedures and widely used instruments; (5) develop appropriate, individualized feeding plans that align with children's IEPs and IFSPs; (6) strengthen collaboration between parents, caregivers, and professionals on a child's feeding team; and (7) monitor feeding progress through anecdotal records, observations, and data-based approaches.
