This collection of articles reviews and presents current evidence related to novel treatment approaches in dysphagia management across the lifespan. Georgia Malandraki and Kate Hutcheson begin by providing clinicians with an overview of intensive dysphagia therapy programs; more specifically the Intensive Dysphagia Rehabilitation (IDR) approach and the MD Anderson Swallowing Boot Camp protocol for patients with neurogenic dysphagia and dysphagia after treatment for head and neck cancer (HNC) respectively. Next, Maggie-Lee Huckabee and Emma Burnip summarize the conceptual basis for skill training in dysphagia management and review the existing evidence to support its clinical application. Finally, Emily Zimmerman and Kelsey Thompson extend the discussion to the pediatric population and provide a detailed review of new technologies used for dysphagia management in infants, along with their current evidence collection of articles primarily focused on the evidence-based use of screening techniques to identify swallowing disorders in patients with a variety of medical diagnoses.
