This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of swallowing disorders (dysphagia) and current approaches to prevention, assessment and treatment of patients with dysphagia. Included in the course topics are: anatomy and physiology of the normal and abnormal swallow with attention to each stage of the swallow; swallowing issues unique to pediatric and adult patients, and issues with caretakers within and across cultures; and contemporary research issues and outcomes. These topics will be integrated to provide students with basic knowledge and skills needed to assess and implement a treatment plan for patients with dysphagia.
