In light of the often complex and multifactorial etiology of pediatric feeding disorders, a thorough assessment of the presenting problem is essential. Optimal assessment is multidisciplinary and employs multiple methods for identifying the current problem and relevant history. Effective assessment requires attention to both medical and behavioral issues, as well as the interaction between these factors. Attributing feeding problems entirely to either structural or physiological processes would ignore important behavioral components that are present in most cases. Conversely, viewing all feeding problems as behavioral would miss crucial medical issues that need to be addressed so that behavioral treatment is effective. By assessing a combination of medical and behavioral factors and their interaction, treatment teams can better tailor treatments to the unique needs of each child.
