Dysphagia Assessment and Treatment Planning, now in its third edition, is ideal for graduate dysphagia courses in speech-language pathology programs. The unique value of this book is its multidisciplinary approach, incorporating information pertinent to physicians, speech pathologists, nurse specialists, and dieticians who work together on a daily basis. For the third edition, the chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated, including new information on many topics related to dysphagia in various medical conditions and patient populations, the latest assessments and instruments, and the current best practices in the treatment of swallowing disorders.

A DVD included with the text provides an animated tutorial demonstrating techniques for objective measures from fluoroscopy studies. In addition, it includes both normal and patient fluoroscopy studies for review and measurement. The patient studies selected are representative of impairments typically observed in clinical practice (inpatient and outpatient). Other media clips illustrate each instrumental assessment technique introduced in the book (e.g., endoscopic, transnasal esophagoscopy, high resolution manometry), performed on a variety of dysphagic patients.

A companion workbook is also available (sold separately) that includes practical exercises accompanying each chapter—for example, a step-by-step tutorial for making objective measures of timing and displacement from fluoroscopic swallow studies. The exercises are designed to clarify and expand on information presented in the text and should be of interest not only to students but to practicing clinicians hoping to add new skills to their repertoires.
