The feeding goal for children with special needs is to help them grow up to be as competent as possible with eating. The perspective of the Satter Feeding Dynamics model is that all children have eating capabilities. Care providers can help best by looking for and supporting those capabilities, then letting children push themselves along to the greatest extent possible to manage their own eating. This principle applies to preventing feeding problems with at-risk children as well as solving feeding problems once they occur.  For parents, trusting the child to do his/her part with eating makes all the difference between
approaching feeding with dread, concern, and frustration or with confidence, practicality, and joy
