At ASHA’s 2005 Convention in San Diego, CA, a group of speech-language pathologists presented a short course entitled, “Dysphagia in the Schools: It Can Be Done!” The course featured medical interventions, a successful school intervention model, and case studies. The course was well received by approximately 70 attendees. Questions raised by the attendees, combined with their feedback, will assist ASHA and its committees in planning and creating future programs related to the topic of dysphagia in the schools.
This course was created as part of a collaborative effort of Division 16, School-Based Issues, and Division 13, Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders. In response to members’ questions and requests for information related to dysphagia in the schools, Celia Hooper, 2003–2005 Vice President for Professional Practices in Speech-Language Pathology, formed a coordinating committee on “Dysphagia in the Schools” last year. Committee members include Sheryl C. Amaral, Joan C. Arvedson, Emily M. Homer, Maureen A. Lefton-Greif, DeAnne W. Owre, Justine Joan Sheppard (chair), Celia Hooper, Lemmietta McNeilly, and Janet Brown.
