This presentation addresses the importance of asking the right questions about the feeding experience that cross over all four domains of PFD. Case studies are used to show how asking the right questions may lead to earlier assessment and intervention. Tools for asking questions across domains are also highlighted.

Learning Objectives
Participants will be able to:

  • State the 4 domains of PFD
  • List two tools designed to help with asking the right questions to facilitate early identification of PFD
  • List at least one question from each of the 4 domains of PFD that may help identify PFD
