It is ASHA Convention Time! Hooray! So, let's pick up our speech-language pathology bags, programs, and ribbons, then get busy learning how to better serve individuals with swallowing impairments.
I love Philadelphia! The weather is colder and that always puts a little pep in my step. I need a little of this pep so I can sprint to all the fantastic seminars and events for this week. Convention week is a time of learning and networking; therefore, we at Perspectives on Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders, bring you additional learning opportunities from a fantastic group of volunteer authors.
Our topic focus for the final publication in 2016 will be on treating people who experience swallowing problems secondary to cancer. First, Antonia Kilcommons and Deborah Rawlinson write an amazing pediatric piece titled, “Dysphagia and Long-Term Feeding Difficulties in the Pediatric Brain Tumor Population.” Antonia and Deborah share their clinical experiences in the holistic management of dysphagia when supporting children post surgery, during chemotherapy, radiotherapy and in end of life.
