SAC Webinar – Relationships Between Pediatric Feeding-Swallowing and Speech-Language: Theory, Recent Data and Clinical Implications
November 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
In this presentation, we will discuss developing theoretical and clinical research models that suggest close ties between feeding-swallowing and speech-language, particularly developmental language disorder. We will consider the possibility that earlier occurring feeding-swallowing difficulties might signal later language impairments. We will also consider whether there are treatment advantages of targeting feeding-swallowing difficulties and language impairments in children. Finally, we will discuss additional clinical implications, including how this information might influence professional practice policies.
