Background: co-occurrence of feeding and language disorders. Aim: to investigate possible connections between feeding and language disorders, based on a bio-psychic perspective. Method: a clinical-qualitative methodology, developed through a longitudinal study of a clinical case of a three year old boy with the complaint "does not speak or eat" and with a medical diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease. Results: the analyzed case was considered emblematic of connections between feeding and language disorders. Conclusions: results indicate that there is a relationship between oral language and feeding problems. It is suggested for speech-language therapists who work with language problems to investigate feeding habits, as well as for those who for with the stomatognathic system to investigate the oral language of their patients.
