New and Must-Have Tools for Swallowing Disorders!

We take pleasure in sending information about three of our books covering swallowing disorders.

 

We bring you the third edition of Clinical Management of Swallowing Disorders, a core textbook that addresses the needs of trainees and practicing clinicians treating swallowing disorders in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes and in private outpatient clinics.

Dysphagia in Rare Conditions, based on the editors’ and contributors’ knowledge of conditions and expected swallowing signs and treatments, effectively synthesizes the available information to provide essentials needed to help perform sophisticated assessments.

Extraesophageal Reflux is a unique book that presents best evidence and practices from experts in the fields of gastroenterology, allergy, otolaryngology, surgery and pulmonology to best understand the current clinical challenges in this field and to help all subspecialties that interact with this group of patients.

Communication and Parkinson Disease

Incredibly, in spite of the literature published in learned journals, there is no book which focuses specifically on the debilitating speech, cognitive-linguistic, and swallowing disorders associated with Parkinson.

In Communication and Swallowing in Parkinson Disease, the editors have condensed and organized this information into an accessible format in order to provide a comprehensive understanding of these disorders and their management.

Edie R. Hapner

This brand new product emanates from the author’s self-developed and proven program for training Speech-Language Pathologists in the use of FEES.
