How can speech language pathologists incorporate muscle strengthening principles into treatment for persons experiencing dysphagia, and how does the evidence support this kind of intervention? This course, with Dr. Giselle Carnaby, seeks to answer these questions by providing an introduction to muscle strengthening within the context of swallowing treatment. The course begins with an overview of the relevant anatomy and involved muscles, and the principles of muscle strengthening, atrophy, and re-training. The course then reviews research literature and potential applications for muscle strengthening within the context of dysphagia therapy.

For students interested in learning more about the future of swallowing evaluation and treatment, consider attending the Florida Dysphagia Institute 2.0 - a week long course featuring Dr. Michael Crary and Dr. Giselle Carnaby. The course takes place in Orlando, FL, and includes 32 Hours of CEUs with practical application, exhibitors and receptions.
