Summary: SLPs are increasingly involved in the care of patients with head and neck cancer. While preventative dysphagia services are accepted as standard of care, many clinicians don't have the background in this population to determine how to best evaluate and treat patients prior to radiation. This on demand webinar (available beginning December 16, 2022) covers what clinicians need to know to provide prehabilitative care-from justification to assessment to treatment to working within the multidisciplinary cancer care team.

Summary: This on demand webinar is designed for school-based SLPs who support children with complex oral feeding and swallowing needs. The speaker discusses the components of a robust feeding and dysphagia assessment, and how that assessment informs treatment decisions surrounding a student's feeding needs. The course examines effective and realistic goal development to address feeding needs within the IEP.
Presenter(s): Ashwini M. Namasivayam-MacDonald, PhD, CCC-SLP, SLP(C)

Summary: This on demand webinar focuses on identification and management of dysphagia in people with dementia, with discussion of current research on dysphagia assessment, intervention, and caregiver burden. The webinar presents preferred practices for maximizing quality of life for this patient population.

Summary: SLPs who work with children with feeding disorders often face challenges when managing oral hypersensitivities or advancing a child’s diet due to refusal behaviors. This on demand webinar explores the question, “What can I do when oral-sensory-motor deficits and difficult behaviors intersect?” The speaker discusses factors to consider when evaluating children with behavioral feeding disorders as well as uses video examples to illustrate and discuss various treatment strategies.

Summary: Behavioral interventions that provide a calibrated mode for strengthening inspiratory and expiratory muscles are limited and often non-evidence-based. This on demand webinar discusses the evidence base for respiratory muscle strength training (RMST) devices and shares the assessment and treatment protocols necessary for valid implementation of respiratory muscle strength training protocols. The course will be useful for SLPs working in health care settings treating acute and chronic conditions that impact the functions of breathing, coughing, swallowing, and vocalizing that result from skeletal muscle weakness.

Summary: This on demand webinar addresses the clinical utility of a clinical swallow examination (CSE) for individuals with suspected swallowing impairment. The speaker discusses the power of the CSE, which comes from employing a systematic assessment to enhance clinical decision-making. The webinar dives into the critical components for a multidimensional CSE applicable across patient populations and settings.

Summary: The use of telepractice for dysphagia management has increased dramatically due to the challenges of in-person practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this on demand webinar, the presenter will share step-by-step, evidence-based guidelines for the safe and reliable use of telehealth for dysphagia management in both pediatric and adult patients. The speaker will discuss legal safeguards, privacy and confidentiality considerations, technology infrastructure, clinician training and skills, facilitator training, and patient candidacy considerations. The webinar will include video case examples, problem-solving activities, and demonstrations of telepractice adaptations for clinical (bedside) swallowing evaluations and treatment sessions. During the webinar, the speaker will guide participants in the creation of a practical roadmap to implement telepractice with their patients with dysphagia.
Presenter(s): Debra M. Suiter, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.25
Summary: This course illustrates how SLPs can develop appropriate, evidence-based, and practical treatment plans for patients with dysphagia based on the results of instrumental swallow assessments. The speaker discusses case studies involving the use of various assessments, including videofluoroscopy, endoscopy, and high-resolution manometry.
Presenter(s): Mary Lee Casper, MA, CCC-SLP, FNAP; Aneesha Virani, PhD, CCC SLP

Summary: Due to the rapidly changing climate in dysphagia management, adhering to recent changes in billing and documentation standards and procedures can be challenging for SLPs. In this on demand webinar, speakers will identify common pitfalls and discuss strategies to meet expectations, so clinicians can avoid unethical decisions, prevent dings, and maximize local coverage for dysphagia reimbursement. The speakers will also illustrate how advocating for accurate representation in SLP billing and documentation supports clinician competency and patient outcomes. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 13: Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia).
Presenter(s): Kara Fletcher Larson, MS, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: This webinar explores various aspects of working with pediatric patients with complex aerodigestive disorders. Speaker Kara Fletcher Larson discusses the developmental progression to oral feeding, implementing safe feeding plans, weaning from gastrostomy tube feedings, and working within a multidisciplinary team.
