Author information

Each of the six feeding disorders described presents with specific symptoms, has a different origin, and responds to different interventions. Consequently, it is important to establish an accurate diagnosis and use the appropriate intervention for the specific feeding disorder. As the study by Benoit et al [7] demonstrates, an intervention that may be helpful for one feeding disorder can be completely ineffective for another.
