Dysphagia and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are common problems for children with neurological impairment (NI). This article highlights their importance, diagnosis, complications, initial management, and guidelines for referral. We propose a conceptual model of how to approach children with NI based on current evidence and guidelines for interventions, including anti-reflux procedures, while the deficits in evidence to guide management are identified as motivation for future research.
