Abstract In the last 20 years, neonatal survival has progressively increased due to the constant amelioration of neonatal medical treatment and surgical techniques. Thus, the number of children with congenital malformations and severe chronic pathologies who need rehabilitative care has progressively increased. Rehabilitation programs for paediatric patients with disorders of voice, speech and language, communication and hearing, deglutition and breathing are not widely available in hospital settings or in long-term care facilities. In most countries, the number of physicians and technicians is still inadequate; moreover, multidisciplinary teams dedicated to paediatric patients are quite rare. The aim of the present study is to present some new trends in ENT paediatric rehabilitation.

Abstract

Abstract In the last 20 years, neonatal survival has progressively increased due to the constant amelioration of neonatal medical treatment and surgical techniques. Thus, the number of children with congenital malformations and severe chronic pathologies who need rehabilitative care has progressively increased. Rehabilitation programs for paediatric patients with disorders of voice, speech and language, communication and hearing, deglutition and breathing are not widely available in hospital settings or in long-term care facilities. In most countries, the number of physicians and technicians is still inadequate; moreover, multidisciplinary teams dedicated to paediatric patients are quite rare. The aim of the present study is to present some new trends in ENT paediatric rehabilitation.
