Abstract

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.
