References in periodicals archive ?
Children with NOFTT tend to live in households containing more marital or relationship problems, and caregivers appear to have less social support than caregivers of well children (Iwaniec, Herbert, & McNeish, 1985).
Schmitt (1988) reported accidental FTT made up around 19 percent of the total number of cases of NOFTT.
Some cases of NOFTT can be linked to maladaptive allocation of food.
