The management of feeding and swallowing disorders has become an emerging issue for school-based speech-language pathologists. ASHA addressed this issue in their Technical Report Executive Summary stating, “The area of pediatric swallowing and feeding disorders is one of the most rapidly evolving patient care areas for medically based SLPs and other professionals serving children. In addition, as an increasing number of high-risk infants survive and enter educational programs, SLPs must acquire medical knowledge and skills to manage swallowing and feeding disorders” (2000a, p. 76).
