This is a comprehensive course that covers all the most common aspects of dysphagia care. In it we explain the normal swallow, the signs, symptoms and consequences of dysphagia, and the SLT/SLP role and recommendations. We examine the new IDDSI framework, including in-depth descriptions, visuals and testing methods for each of the different levels, with interactive learning to enhance the learning experience. Finally we work through additional sections such as medication and oral care. There is also an optional section discussing dysphagia care provision with adults with intellectual disability, for those working in this area.
