Infant and Child Feeding and Swallowing: Occupational Therapy Assessment and Intervention

By Sherna Marcus, BScOT, and Suzanne Breton, MA, BScOT

Infant and child feeding and swallowing are complex processes that require integrating motor, sensory, neurological, cardiorespiratory, and gastrointestinal systems, and they are also sensitive to the child's environment and the parent-child feeding relationship. Occupational therapy practitioners are experts in the areas of motor control, sensory processing, and swallowing function, making them valuable members of the teams caring for these children.

This text provides evidence-based information on how feeding issues develop and present, clinical assessment, and intervention. Drawing on decades of clinical experience and current evidence, this text provides practical strategies to assess and address complex feeding and swallowing problems in infants and children.

Highlights include--
Chapter 1. Overview of Occupational Therapy and Pediatric Feeding
Chapter 2. Development of Oral-Motor Skills
Chapter 3. Clinical Feeding Assessment
Chapter 4. Difficulty Breastfeeding or Bottle-Feeding
Chapter 5. Beyond Breastfeeding and Bottle-Feeding: Difficulty Transitioning to Purees, Solid Foods, and Cup Drinking
Chapter 6. Swallowing Impairment
Chapter 7. Gastroesophageal Reflux and Other Gastrointestinal Issues
Chapter 8. Feeding Aversion and Transitioning From Tube to Oral Feeding
Appendixes--Specialized Knowledge and Skills in Feeding, Eating, and Swallowing for Occupational Therapy Practice; Specialized Knowledge and Skills for Occupational Therapy Practice in the Neonatal Intesive Care Unit.

This text also includes a flash drive containing useful parent handouts that can be printed and writable forms that can be used for documentation and evaluation. Comprehensive and practical, this book guides practitioners through the careful clinical decision making this vulnerable population requires.
