A Different (not disordered!) Perspective
Congratulations to doctoral student Alayna Ernster, who, under the mentorship of Dr. Ianessa Humbert, has just posted an article on Dysphagia Cafe about the power of perspective in understanding the difference between the range of normal swallowing and what constitutes a swallowing disorder. Her thoughts are expressed well on the topic with a balance of research evidence and practical considerations. Given that her background is not typical among swallowing researchers or clinicians, it is refreshing that the implications she presents are clear and her recommendations constructive.
Please check out her article here! We would love to hear your thoughts as well. 2018 is off to a great start and we are looking forward to seeing what the SSC team comes out with next.
