It's here. This book finally condenses all current information on pediatric dysphagia into an easily accessible guide for SLP's working with children having swallowing disorders. In addition to management, etiology of disordered swallowing is emphasized. Neurodevelopment, oral-motor feeding skills, and anatomy/physiology of normal swallowing are detailed to reinforce clinical evaluation skills. All aspects of working in neonatal intensive care units/pediatric intensive care units (NICU/PICU) are covered. Communication Disorders / Nursing / Medicine
