 Dysphagia Assessment and Treatment Planning: A Team Approach, Fourth Edition is an ideal resource for dysphagia courses in speech-language pathology graduate programs. The unique value of this book is its multidisciplinary approach. Too often, speech-language pathologists function clinically with insufficient interaction with, or understanding of, the roles of other professionals involved with their patients. This text incorporates information pertinent to the roles, tools, and views of a multidisciplinary dysphagia team, including physicians, speech pathologists, nurse specialists, and dietitians, who work together on a daily basis.

In this fourth edition, the organization has changed, with chapters concerned with assessment techniques coming first, and material addressing special populations comprising the latter portion of the text. This reflects what is likely a more typical approach to dysphagia in graduate courses concerned with the topic and one that complements teaching of the subject matter.

Updates to the fourth edition include:

The treatment chapter (Chapter 10) has been updated to reflect the current status of therapeutic approaches previously considered in treating dysphagic patients.Chapters dealing with nursing (Chapter 11) and nutrition (Chapter 12) have been updated to incorporate the latest recommendations in nursing care and dietary considerations for patients experiencing dysphagia.The pediatrics chapter (Chapter 13) has been expanded to address specific problems and needs not only of infants but also the entire spectrum of childhood.A chapter devoted to the esophagus (Chapter 14) addresses new information on the management of esophageal disorders, including the novel double-balloon dilation of the UES and a device for manually opening the upper esophagus.Chapters addressing special populations, including neurogenic disease (Chapter 15) and head and neck cancer (Chapter 16), incorporate the latest information regarding dysphagia and approaches to treatment pertinent to each group.A brand-new addition to the book is Chapter 18, which addresses dysphagia associated with alterations to the spine as a consequence of either disease or surgery.*Disclaimer: Please note that ancillary content (such as documents, audio, and video, etc.) may not be included as published in the original print version of this book. 
 Treatment of Voice Disorders, Second Edition presents the entire range of behavioral, medical, and surgical voice treatment options from the perspective of a variety of specialist practitioners with exceptional breadth and clarity. As suggested in the opening chapter, contemporary treatment of voice disorders draws on interdisciplinary expertise, and the book is true to that perspective. The team approach to voice treatment is realized through the contributions of laryngologists, speech-language pathologists, singing voice specialists, nurses, physiotherapists, acting voice trainers, and others.

The reader will find discussion of various treatment procedures, including surgical, pharmacological, and behavioral. This text presents essential information that allows for the effective interaction of various specialties. For example, behavioral specialists can draw on the information that is given on surgery, trauma and injury, and medications. This book is at once a template for team-based treatment and a deep informational resource for treatment alternatives. Its scope and depth make it a book that the voice specialist will want to keep close at hand.

New to this edition:

New content on topics such as technology in the studio and pedagogy for children.Many topics have been expanded to highlight current practices, to include information published since the previous edition, and to present current management approaches.Chapters have been rewritten extensively to include the most current techniques and to reflect the latest beliefs and practices, as well as the most recent information from the evolving literature in this field.Chapter 16 on nutrition has been completely rewritten and includes important changes in criteria and strategy, reflecting developments in nutritional science over the past decade.New material on topics such as choral pedagogy for geriatric singers, laryngeal manipulation, and cosmetic procedures and their implications for voice professionals.


Treatment of Voice Disorders, Second Edition is ideal for speech-language pathology students and clinicians and is suitable for classroom use as well as for reference. It is an essential volume for anyone concerned with voice disorders.

Management of Swallowing and Feeding Disorders in Schools examines the most significant issues in swallowing and feeding facing school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs). Topics addressed are unique to the school setting, ranging from organizing a team procedure in a district to serving children with complex medical issues, behavioral feeding disorders, and neurological feeding disorders. Ethical, legal, and cultural issues are also addressed.

Many students in school districts across the country exhibit the signs and symptoms of dysphagia, and children who were originally treated for dysphagia in hospitals and other settings often begin attending public schools at three years old. The difficulty they had with swallowing and feeding frequently follows them to the school setting. Further, there are many students who develop swallowing and feeding disorders as a result of traumatic brain injury, neurological disorders and syndromes, behavioral disorders, and so forth. The range of students needing services for swallowing and feeding disorders in the school setting can be from three to twenty-two years of age and from mild dysphagia to tube feeding.

The identification and treatment of swallowing and feeding disorders in schools is relatively new. There are still many districts in the country and internationally that do not address the needs of children with dysphagia. As school-based SLPs take on the challenge of this population there is a need for information that is current, accurate, and thorough. University programs include very little training, if any, at this time in the area of swallowing and feeding in the school setting. This text is appropriate for both a dysphagia course as well as courses that train SLP students to work with school-aged students.
