This issue of Perspectives is focused on pediatric issues and, specifically, treatment of feeding disorders. Four of the articles discuss specific clinical approaches to treating feeding disorders. Lori Overland describes a sensory-motor approach to treating feeding disorders, focusing on the idea that food refusal is an adaptive response to negative feeding experience. William Roche and his team discuss their interdisciplinary model that incorporates oral, motor, medical, and behavioral aspects of the treatment approach for feeding. Cheri Fraker and Laura Walbert detail a systematic method of using Pre-Chaining and Food Chaining therapy to treat dysphagia and aversive feeding disorders. Kay Toomey and Erin Ross present the SOS approach, which is a transdisciplinary program designed to assess and address the reasons why a child struggles to eat successfully. In the final article, Donna Edwards and Sara Marlise Martin review important information related to choking risk and foreign body aspiration in young children.
