No matter how severe the feeding problem - in infancy or childhood - this unique resource offers useful clinical guidelines for comprehensive assessment and treatment. Detailed case studies illustrate individualized assessments, causal analyses, interventions, and outcomes for a wide range of childhood feeding disorders.
