Dunn, Dena M.; Galbally, Sandra Lynn; Markowitz, Goldie; Pucci, Kristy N.; Brochi, Ligia; Cohen, Sherri Shubin
ZERO TO THREE, v37 n6 p28-35 Jul 2017
This article presents the importance of multidisciplinary, family-centered care, and a developmental bio-psycho-social approach to treating feeding difficulties in a child with a complex medical history. Hannah spent the first 9 months of her life in the hospital and was discharged dependent on nasogastric tube feeding. Her journey to recovery began at the Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia at 9 months old, where she was followed by a multidisciplinary team and then enrolled in an intensive behavioral feeding program at 23 months. As a result of close outpatient team follow up; persistent, attuned parents; and Hannah's developmental gains, she is now fully orally feeding at 3 years old
