About the event

Dysphagia is difficulty swallowing or the inability to functionally ingest food or liquid into the stomach. Dysphagia can range from mild to severe and can affect anyone at any age, however, it is more common in older adults. In severe cases aspiration (food/liquid into the lungs) occurs which can cause pneumonia. Visual instrumentation can identify or rule out aspiration and prevent infection.

Presentation 1: Identifying Dysphagia; Visual Instrumentation and Why It Is Important (Speaker: Sara Kiedlinger, M.A., CCC-SLP)

Presentation 2: An Overview on the Basics of Spasticity and Botox As Treatment (Speaker: Kristen Andrews, BA, MS)
