Assessment of sleeping, feeding/eating, and attachment problems in early childhood
This chapter focuses on problems that can occur in three fundamental developmental processes during infancy and early childhood: sleeping, feeding/eating, and attachment. Background, context, and recent research for problems and disorders in these three domains are covered. Assessment of problems and disorders in attachment, sleeping, and feeding/eating are described including classification and diagnostic considerations. In addition, specific assessment instruments for the three types of problems are covered. The chapter concludes with a discussion of implications for practitioners to help establish links between assessment and intervention.
