About the Author

The Children’s Hospital of Buffalo

I found this book very helpful and informative. It is easy to read and provides a wide variety of charts and information. Great section on early feeding development. Have enjoyed the whole book.

I have used this book more than any textbooks I’ve been required to purchase (this one was not required). Not only has it helped me with my thesis, but it has helped me in so many other classes throughout graduate school. Arvedson is THE resource for pediatric dysphagia.

I needed to up date my resources. I had her 1st version, so I knew thus would only be better and up to date. She includes recommendations that families can follow through with. The information is necessary for my job, so I can provide ethical treatment to our PICU and NICU .
