A guide to helping children who have difficulty in eating and drinking, suitable for both health care professionals and non-professionals. Although particularly relevant to cerebral palsy, the information and management techniques can be applied to other disabilities, such as Riley-Day syndrome, and to children with general developmental delay. Early chapters provide background information, including case histories and an analysis of the normal development of eating and drinking. Specific areas of difficulty, such as positioning, assessment, practical management, nutrition, dental hygiene and dribbling are dealt with separately. For new-born babies, this book tabulates key stages in eating and drinking skills from birth to 60 months. Clear illustrations are included, as is photocopiable resource material for practical casework. The content is also school-related and includes lists of equipment, textured foods and helpful organizations.
