I recently had the pleasure of guest authoring an article about the basics of swallowing for the National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders. This article explains the basics of how swallowing works, the various signs of dysphagia to look for, and an overview of the treatment options available. Click hereto read the full online text of the article on NFOSD’s website.
We’re happy to be able to collaborate with the NFOSD to help raise awareness of dysphagia and the help that is available on a national level! We have also been discussing a northeastern Oklahoma quarterly dysphagia support group (with informational resources, related guest speakers, etc.) that is in the works and should launch early next year.
If you have any questions about dysphagia, please feel free to reach out, and I’d love to help any way I can.
