Summary: Individuals with severe disabilities require services from many different providers to address their wide and varied needs. This journal self-study discusses the principles of interprofessional collaborative practice and why this approach may be the most appropriate way to provide services to those with severe disabilities. The articles discuss how interprofessional collaborative practice can improve outcomes for children with severe disabilities and describe specific examples of this type of practice, including suggestions about how SLPs can work with parents and other professionals to improve services for this challenging population. The articles utilize case studies to help illustrate key concepts.

Summary: This webinar will explore an expanded approach to dysphagia assessment and treatment designed to maximize an individual’s eating and swallowing safety, efficiency, and pleasure. Traditional management approaches typically view dysphagia as a mechanical and/or physiologic problem. By contrast, the expanded approach explained in the webinar strives to give the clinician a more holistic portrait of the patient’s lived experience with dysphagia. The expanded approach to evaluation incorporates a wider array of measurement tools from across health care domains while maximizing efficiency so the broader assessment does not require additional time. The expanded approach to treatment includes recommendations for diet changes as well as tips for facilitating the use of evidence-based practices.

Summary: Inadequate oral hygiene practices can contribute to or result in severe localized and systemic illnesses, significantly altering the health status and well-being of older adults. Care providers must recognize symptoms, conditions, and their potential consequences and elevate routine oral hygiene care to oral infection control programs. This session from the 2017 online conference “Dysphagia in Older Adults” identifies possible oral hygiene complications—from oral pain to pneumonia—and discusses how to recognize and assess them. Speaker John Ashford also addresses the importance of standardized intervention.
