Description

This practical volume provides a wealth of both basic and new knowledge about eating activities and deficits. Occupational therapy professionals offer interventions that meet the needs of patients with eating problems. A rich resource for clinician and student alike, this vital book examines in a clear and engaging style such topics as eating problems among neonates, patients with dramatic structural changes in their eating “apparatus” as a result of surgery, and the growing need among the rising population of elderly whose competencies in daily life are threatened or impaired.
