Home and Parent Training Strategies for Pediatric Feeding Disorders: The Caregiver Perspective

Academic Article


  • Abstract Date Presented 04/06/19 This quantitative study examined parents’ perspective of caregiver training to support their child’s feeding disorder and how it affected mealtimes. A total of 108 parents completed a web-based survey. Results revealed caregivers feel supported but desire more support; relationships in the family are adversely affected. Implications for OT practitioners include practicing family-centered care; addressing holistic home training topics, and considering treatment in natural environments.
