Course Description:

MDTP is a systematic exercise-based approach to dysphagia therapy in adults.  Rather than a specific technique, MDTP is a framework from which to provide individualized therapy to adult patients.  This one-day intermediate course introduces participants to the conceptual basis of MDTP, provides the results of initial clinical studies documenting functional and physiologic benefits from MDTP intervention, describes in detail the components of MDTP, and provides step by step instruction for the evaluation and treatment of patients receiving the MDTP approach.

 

This course is offered for 0.85 ASHA CEUS (Intermediate level, Professional area)

The content of this seminar is not available to students

Cost:

Before December 14, 2018: $475 USD
