What People are Saying about Dysphagia Therapy

This app is so useful for the SLP in any setting who works with dysphagic patients. It is well-organized and easy to find what you are after. I appreciate the cranial nerve section and have used it in acute care to confirm my assessment and make sure I was not missing something. In the “Therapy Finder” the exercises, compensatory strategies, and maneuvers are all research-based and include clear instructions for both the SLP and the patient.
Brenda M. Arend, MA, CCC-SLP
Dysphagia Therapy has been a great tool for a school-based therapist like myself to transition to the medical setting. The app allows me to refresh my memory on current signs, symptoms, and treatments. Then I can quickly make patient handouts for care plans and home programs. It’s easy to make client-centered decisions!
Katie Millican, M.Ed., CCC-SLP
