        Targeted Interventions for Dysphagia Management

        January 27, 2022 | 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM ET

        January 29, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET

        Clinicians often take a “more is better” approach to dysphagia intervention – long lists of exercises, and strategies that our clients and their families can’t possibly adhere to, or interventions that don’t match the underlying diagnosis or impairment. This course will discuss potential underlying causes of dysphagia and their accompanying impairments in order to help clinicians develop targeted interventions for adults with dysphagia. Case reviews will be utilized to assist participants in identification of physiological targets for swallow treatment including breathing/swallow discoordination, delays in swallow response, and pharyngeal dysmotility among others.  Assistance with development of impairment-specific strategies, exercises and compensations will be provided.
