The approach to children with neurogenic dysphagia is unique due to their development, growth, and behavior. Multiple streams of development (cognitive, oral-motor, fine and gross motor) have direct and indirect effects on feeding. Provision of an appropriate feeding program requires that the multiple needs, abilities, and disabilities of each child be assessed and managed appropriately.
