Behavioral Intervention and Prevention of Feeding Difficulties in Infants and Toddlers
Kerwin, MaryLouise E.; Eicher, Peggy S.
Journal of Early and Intensive Behavior Intervention, v1 n2 p129-140 2004
Although eating is considered an automatic physiologic process, many children experience feeding difficulties. The purpose of this paper is to provide a framework for assessment, treatment and prevention of feeding difficulties in children. Identification and treatment of any factors actively interfering with feeding success is a critical cornerstone for effective behavioral interventions for feeding. Using variables that comprise the structure of a meal, this paper discusses how these variables might be manipulated in behavioral interventions for feeding problems. Recommendations for prevention of feeding problems are also presented. (Contains 1 figure.)
