In consideration of your health and the health of our MDTP instructors in the presence of this viral pandemic this will be a LIVE and ONLINE MDTP Certification Course. The content and format will be the same as our face to face courses.

 

A link to join the course in Zoom will be sent to all registered participants the week before the course.

 

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

 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to...

 1.   Describe the components of MDTP therapy and differentiate this approach from more traditional therapy.

2.     Describe current clinical research supporting MDTP therapy.

3.     Explain how MDTP uses exercise principles to improve swallow function.

4.     Explain physiologic changes in swallowing that may result from various foods/liquids.

5.     Use specific clinical tools in the evaluation of patients for participation in MDTP therapy.

6.     Conduct MDTP therapy sessions and monitor patient progress and outcome.
