This textbook, now in its third edition, is ideal for graduate dysphagia courses in speech-language pathology programs. The unique value of this book is the multidisciplinary approach it presents. Too often, speech- language pathologists function clinically with insufficient interaction with, or understanding of, the roles of other professionals involved with their patients. This text incorporates information pertinent to the roles, tools, and views of a multidisciplinary dysphagia team, including physicians, speech pathologists, nurse specialists, and dieticians, that works together on a daily basis.. For the third edition, the authors have added a companion workbook that includes practical exercises accompanying each chapter-for example, a step-by-step tutorial for making objective measures of timing and displacement from fluoroscopic swallow studies. The exercises are designed to clarify and expand on information presented in the text and should be of interest not only to students but to practicing clinicians hoping to add new skills to their repertoires.. Previous chapters have also been thoroughly revised and updated, including new information on the following topics: . Effects of head and neck cancer, chemotherapy, and radiation therapies on swallowing Clinical and bedside assessments Survey instruments used by patients and clinicians How surgeries/treatments affecting the head and neck (e.g., cervical spine, thyroid) affect swallowing Greatly expanded information pertinent to unique features of dysphagia associated with CVA, neurogenic and neuromuscular disorders New information regarding reflexive interactions between esophagus and larynx that potentially influence swallowing Assessment in infants and children New tools for nonoral feeding Recommendations for dysphagia diets, and practical ways to implement these Rheologic characteristics of foods and how this information is incorporated in assessment and treatment planni
