Product Overview

Feeding, eating, and swallowing ADLs are critical occupations and well within occupational therapy’s scope of practice for evaluation, assessment, and intervention. Dysphagia is a prevalent secondary condition that can result from various disease processes, such as stroke, acquired brain injury, cancer, trauma, or progression of neurologic conditions. Affecting people’s ability to successfully participate in mealtime occupations, swallowing deficits can significantly limit quality of life. Adult Feeding, Eating, and Swallowing demonstrates occupational therapy’s role in dysphagia management within the adult population through evidence-based content, practical how-to information, and emphasis on the multidisciplinary heath care team to equip occupational therapy students and practitioners at all levels to address eating, feeding, and swallowing concerns with their patients.
