How to be successful in your dysphagia course
Hello everyone! I am asking questions on behalf of my audience which consists of a lot of graduate school students. A lot of them are preparing to take their dysphagia courses and are nervous about it. I want to know how you all were successful in your courses. I hope with your advice, they can feel reassured and confident that they can do well in their classes.
What advice or resources would you give these SLP2Bes to set them up for success?
Voice pathology refers to a problem arising from abnormal conditions, such as dysphonia, paralysis, cysts, and even cancer, that cause abnormal vibrations in the vocal cords (or vocal folds). In this context, voice pathology detection (VPD) has received much attention as a non-invasive way to automatically detect voice problems. Click the link to read more.
My graduate program tells me I will get answers wrong if I "mispronounce" the word, "Dysphagia." I've been pronouncing the word as "dis-fah-juh." But I've heard people pronounce as "dis-fay-juh."
I'd like to know your thoughts on this? And why my graduate program would make such a big deal out of this
What specific strategies or adaptations can be used to assist individuals with swallowing difficulties during meals?
Happy National Speech and Language Day!
To all the Speech Language Therapists in our community, today we gather not just as colleagues and peers, but as a dedicated, passionate community with a shared mission. Today, we honor the transformative work that we do and the profound impact we have on the lives we touch. Happy National Speech and Language Day!
On this day, we celebrate the skill, dedication, and compassion that each and every one of you brings to your work as speech therapists. Our role is not merely a job; it's a calling to uplift lives, unlock potential, and transform futures. We witness daily how our efforts can help a child tell their parents they love them, allow an adult to regain their voice after a stroke, or give a person struggling with a stutter the confidence to speak in front of a crowd. The power of our work is immeasurable, and its impact is far-reaching.
Here at Liricare, we believe in empowering people through communication. We celebrate the beauty of diversity in the ways that we communicate, and we strive to bridge the gaps that speech and language barriers can sometimes create. We know that every voice matters and every voice deserves to be heard.
As speech therapists, we are truly the architects of communication. We design the tools and build the bridges that help our patients connect with the world around them. Today, let's pause to acknowledge the extraordinary work that we do, but also the responsibility we carry.
As we mark National Speech and Language Day, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to each member of our Liricare community. Your unwavering commitment, your compassionate care, and your constant pursuit of professional excellence inspire not just your patients, but everyone around you.
Let's continue to uplift one another, share our experiences and wisdom, and celebrate our successes. After all, we are stronger together. We are a beacon of hope for those we serve, and together, we are making a difference, one word at a time.
Happy National Speech and Language Day! Here's to us, to the lives we change, and to the future we're shaping.
