Assessment of Nonorganic Failure To Thrive.
Wooster, Donna M.
Infant-Toddler Intervention: The Transdisciplinary Journal, v9 n4 p353-71 Dec 1999
This article describes basic assessment considerations for infants and toddlers exhibiting nonorganic failure to thrive. The evaluation process must examine feeding, maternal-child interactions, child temperament, and environmental risks and behaviors. Early identification and intervention are necessary to minimize the long-term developmental effects of malnutrition. Evaluation forms are appended. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
