Perspectives, SIG 13, Vol. 2, Part 1, 2017

The articles focused on the published literature that discussed the current state of understanding of the impact of swallowing exercises in the following patient populations: post-stroke, neurodegenerative diseases, and head and neck cancers. Further, the evidence on the impact of swallowing therapy in the pediatric patient population is detailed as well. The first article, by Gary McCullough, explored the literature as it pertains to physiological impairments in swallowing disorders resulting from strokes. In the second article, Michelle Troche and Avinash Mishra discussed the literature’s findings as they relate to strength-based and skill-based dysphagia treatment and treatment strategies in patients with neurodegenerative diseases. The modern management of dysphagia in the head and neck cancer patient population is elaborated in the third article, written by Heather Starmer. In the fourth article, Memorie Gosa and Pamela Dodrill presented the process of effective diagnosis and management of oral-pharyngeal dysphagia in children. Lastly, Lori Morgan Burkhead comprehensively highlighted recent work in dysphagia rehabilitation utilizing the basic principles of exercise therapy as they relate to the interpretation of the content in the aforementioned four articles.
