This course provides a framework to guide school-based SLPs who support child and adolescent feeding and swallowing needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. The presenters provide a foundation of best practices for school-based dysphagia management,review regulatory requirements and processes, discuss approaches to challenging service delivery scenarios, and share resources for continued professional development to strengthen this necessary, yet often less supported, area of practice.
This course is part of the SIGnature Series, a collection of courses developed by volunteers from ASHA’s Special Interest Groups, who share practical, evidence-based suggestions and solutions based on their in-depth knowledge, clinical experiences, and passion for their specialty areas.
