Schwarz, Steven M.
Infants and Young Children, v16 n4 p317-30 Oct-Dec 2003
This article describes an approach to evaluating and managing feeding disorders in children with developmental disabilities and examines effects of these management strategies on growth and clinical outcomes. A structured approach is stressed and a diagnostic and treatment algorithm is presented. Use with 79 children found that diagnostic-specific interventions significantly improve nutritional status and reduce clinical morbidity. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
