4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource! Aug. 15 2001
By "jenanote" - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent resource that every feeding therapist should own. The authors do not target one pediatric developmental stage but infancy through childhood. They thoroughly review normal anatomy and physiology relating to feeding and swallowing as well as complications and treatment options. The feeding experience is not isolated to anatomy and physiology but recognized as an experience with many psychoemotional and environmental factors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resource! May 13 2007
By feeding occupational therapist - Published on Amazon.com
This book is so well written, and truly is pretty darn "comprehensive", as the title says. The authors start with normal development, and lead you through the evaluation, goal writing and treatment process in such a coherent way. Many examples of actual children really help illustrate their points. Considering the cost of attending a feeding seminar, the price of this book is a good deal. Only wish I had time to read the book from front-to-back (it is over 600 pages).

By A. OMalley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic resource. As a fairly new practitioner, this book has really helped me with my approach to my little ones with feeding difficulties. It is very comprehensive- any issue I've had questions about is covered completely. Lots of strategies are offered in excellent detail. I am very pleased with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for feeding therapists Nov. 30 2012
By Allison Toomer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the most comprehensive feeding books I've found. I am a speech pathologist, and it was recommended by a well know feeding specialist that we buy this as a reference text when working with feeding patients. It will not disappoint!!
