Abstract

Teletherapy, the use of video conferencing technology to deliver therapy services, has the potential to provide ongoing services to children that might not otherwise be able to receive traditional intervention that it essential for them to thrive. Among children who are diagnosed with developmental disorders, as well as those who are typically developing, feeding related concerns are highly prevalent. The current report discusses the nature of feeding disorders in children across the continuum of development and diagnoses, synthesizes the current literature of feeding and non-feeding related intervention programs for children in various settings, and discusses their value for future clinical use and research.
