December is here and we find ourselves in the midst of the holiday season. The fireplace crackles, the aroma of cocoa wafts from the kitchen, and family, friends, and loved ones are nearby. We have faced the challenge of ever changing health care with its dwindling resources and fading budget. We have survived the chaos of diminishing natural resources impacting our product supplies necessary for swallow studies. We are flexible as a whole and appreciative of the clients that come to us for help so they too can enjoy the holidays fully with family.
Our December 2013 issue is pediatric based and filled with updates in the literature to help us better serve those families impacted by an infant or child with dysphagia and/or a feeding disorder. Our first article is written by Mark Fishbein, Sarah Flock, and Kathryn Benton. They bring to us a reflection of pediatric feeding therapist practices in early intervention, outpatient, school, and hospital settings in Illinois. They explored skill sets, volume of training specific to pediatric feeding disorders and caseload size. The authors propose a process of certification in conjunction with a clinical pathway for standardization of services.
