Biofeedback in the traditional definition is not commonly used as part of intervention with infants and young children who have feeding and swallowing problems. Biofeedback is defined in Dorland’s Illustrated Medical Dictionary (1994) as the process of furnishing an individual information, usually in an auditory or visual mode, on the state of one or more physiologic variables, such as heart rate, blood pressure, or skin temperature. Such a procedure often enables the individual to gain some voluntary control over the physiologic variable being sampled. Biofeedback is classified under the heading Mind/Body Control by the National Institutes of Health Office of Alternative Medicine (June 1995). The essence of biofeedback is to heighten awareness.
