A Volume in the Dysphagia Series. Speech-Language Pathology graduate students are briefed on how to apply their grounding in voice and speech anatomy and physiology to both normal deglutition and dysphagia. This complete and concise guide introduces swallow therapy, with details of typical and disordered oral, pharyngeal and esophageal components of swallowing outlined. Studetns discover the process of effective and efficient dysphagia diagnosis and mangement in a format designed to fit into the contemporary curriculum. TEXTBOOK
