The Speech-Language Pathology Department at Providence Health Care is pleased to announce they will be hosting this two-day workshop by Dr. Ianessa Humbert.

There have been increasing calls for a shift in the practice patterns of Speech-Language Pathologists who treat dysphagia. This includes demands for greater understanding and clinical application of the fundamentals of normal and disordered swallowing physiology. However, both new and seasoned clinicians report receiving very little training on swallowing physiology and its immediate clinical application. This course will “jump-start” clinician knowledge of swallowing physiology and its application to dysphagia diagnosis and treatment. Attendees will leave with the ability to create swallowing impairment-based treatment plans that can be objectively tracked and clearly documented. This course is suitable for clinicians working with patients across the lifespan, from children to older adults.
