Gastrostomy and Children: A Review of the Literature in Learning Disabilities.
Herrington, Peter; Assey, Joanna; Rouse, Lindsey; Baker, Roger
Children & Society, v15 n5 p375-86 Nov 2001
Reviews literature concerning effects of gastrostomy as alternative nutritional intake on children with developmental delays and their families. Finds that although gastrostomy has been shown to be effective in maintaining adequate weight and nutritional intake, the support given to the family prior to and after the operation is inadequate. Maintains that more emphasis is needed on detailed family assessment. (Author/KB)
