Abstract

The basic process of teaching eating skills to seriously handicapped children is extremely pertinent to teachers of this population. The development of basic eating functions such as sucking, swallowing, chewing, and spoon and cup use constitutes an important part of the daily curriculum for many of these children. The purpose of this article is to organize some of the techniques and considerations that may provide helpful hints for teachers who will be required to initiate this basic training. © 1976, TASH.
