Feeding problems in infants and children can be complex due to a wide variety of presenting symptoms. Evaluation of symptoms frequently involves multiple disciplines. Knowledge of the role of other disciplines in regard to evaluation and management techniques is key to integrated, organized, and comprehensive assessment.
