Did you know that speech-language pathologists can evaluate and treat swallowing disorders? In fact, 8% of the world’s population reports dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing (Martin-Harris et al., 2021). Common causes of dysphagia include head and neck cancer, stroke, brain injury, neurodegenerative diseases, and even aging.
Our lab is dedicated to expanding clinical knowledge of normal and disordered swallowing in adults. We accomplish this by completing research with adults who do and do not have dysphagia. Interested? Click around to learn more about us and about swallowing. We’re glad you’re here!
