Feeding and Swallowing in Schools: Key Considerations
This course bundle includes two recorded sessions from ASHA’s 2017
Schools Connect conference, held in July in New Orleans, Louisiana. These
sessions explore how SLPs working in schools with students with feeding and
swallowing problems can positively influence academic success, family dynamics,
and psychosocial interactions in the home, school, and community. The sessions
use evidence-based practices, case studies, parent interviews, the ASHA Code of
Ethics, and an ethical decision-making model to identify solutions to
situations SLPs may find themselves in when working with this population.
The five sessions in this course bundle are:
- A Supportive Framework for Feeding and
Swallowing Treatment in Schools,
