SIG 13 Perspectives on Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia), October 2002, Vol. 11, 3. doi:10.1044/sasd11.3.3
The topic for this issue is the teaching of swallowing and swallowing disorders to student speech-language pathologists. We are very lucky to have representation from numerous academic programs, for which each author generated detailed descriptions. Most of us teach swallowing and swallowing disorders, be it lecturing to a classroom or with student interns and clinical fellows. The articles in this issue provide an excellent guide on how to base our teaching. They make us ask “Am I providing all that I should to students so that they have the foundation to provide competent evaluation and treatment for patients with swallowing disorders?” They challenge us to do better. In addition, I think from this wonderful issue that all members will realize that we are also students. No matter how long we have been practicing, there is still more to learn. These articles with their detailed explanations and extensive bibliographies can guide us on general and more specific areas in which we can continue to expand our knowledge. Also, thanks to Karen Dikeman and Luis Riquelme for contributing a great article in the Food for Thought section on cultural competence in dysphagia management.
