OLIVEIRA, Luciana de et al. Therapeutic intervention and family acceptance in a case of child with cerebral palsy. Rev. CEFAC [online]. 2015, vol.17, n.1, pp.286-290. ISSN 1982-0216.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1982-021620157714.

Our objective was to describe the case of a 5-year-old child with chronic non-progressive encephalopathy and dysphagia since birth. In videofluoroscopy, aspiration was observed with liquid barium, but not with paste barium. Gastrostomy for feeding and fluid intake was indicated. The family did not follow the guidelines determined by the therapist, as the child drank fluids orally and, therefore, had several episodes of pneumonia. Although the mother was advised to provide liquid only by gastrostomy and not by oral feeding, such guidance was ignored for no apparent reason. We emphasize the importance of family adherence to treatment guidelines to prevent pulmonary complications resulting from the aspiration of food.
