A team approach is advocated for the evaluation and management of children with impairments in deglutition. The complexity of their needs requires the coordination of evaluation and management efforts so that the impact of a child's feeding/swallowing impairment on general health, development, and overall well-being may be addressed. This article reviews the rationale supporting the use of a team approach, the organizational structures of teams, and the challenges of using a team model of service delivery to meet the needs of this population.
