SIG 13 Perspectives on Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia), June 2001, Vol. 10, 1-2. doi:10.1044/sasd10.2.1
Welcome to the summer edition of the Division 13 Newsletter. I have learned the importance of providing our specialist members with information on swallowing and swallowing disorders that covers the entire age continuum and treatment setting. Lisa Newman, our Editor, also recognizes this need and has done another terrific job at assembling impressive contributions by experts. We are exposed to the basic science research of Rebecca German, who discusses mammalian infant swallowing. Our own Associate Coordinator and pediatric expert, Maureen Lefton-Greif writes on ethical considerations in the evaluation and treatment of swallowing disorders in infants and children. We are fortunate to have Joan Sheppard and Joan Arvedson in our division ranks. They will address the area of dysphagia profiles in school-aged children with developmental disabilities and the evaluation of pediatric dysphagia. Carrie Keckley and Stacey Gibson teach us about techniques directed toward the prevention and treatment of oral defensive-ness in infants and children. James Tutor, a pediatric pulmonologist, introduces us to aspiration issues and consequences. Jean Ashland introduces us to her work regarding feeding interactions and their effect on patient outcomes. Finally, we are very pleased with DeAnne Owre’s review of swallowing issues in the public school setting. We are highly aware of the challenges that public school clinicians face with mandates to evaluate and treat children in the public school setting who present with ever increasing medical complexity. DeAnne is the Coordinator for ASHA’s newest division, Division 16, School-Based Issues, and we welcome that disciplines collaborative effort with Division 13 as we research solutions for dealing with this challenge.
