Description
This presentation is brought to you through a partnership with SC LEND. This presentation will review the definition, diagnosis, common etiologies of, and contributing factors to, Pediatric Feeding Disorders (PFD). PFD is more common than many healthcare providers realize, occurring in 20% of typically developing children and 80% of children with developmental disabilities. The negative effect on family quality of life is chronic, creating toxic stress for years, not months. We will also cover key strategies for treatment, safety, positioning, and referring out. which will examine a variety of assistive technology tools available for children with neurological and traumatic brain injury.
