A Volume In The Singular Resource Guide Series. Pediatric Dysphagia Resource Guide presents up-to-date and pertinent information on pediatric dysphagia, condensed into an easily accessible guide that every speech-language pathologist working with children with swallowing disorders must have. It covers information regarding normal aspects of neurodevelopment, oral-motor feeding skills, and anatomy/physiology of swallowing. Additionally, this book orients clinicians to all aspects of working in the NICU/PICU environment including how to monitor the equipment, effects of medications on feeding and swallowing, and etiologies of swallowing disorders. Case studies, charts, graphs, indexes, and reproducible forms are especially helpful for the new speech-language pathology graduate.
