The theme for this issue of Perspectives is dysphagia practice in school settings. Emily Homer begins the issue with a description of issues of management of swallowing and feeding disorders in the school setting. Lissa Power-deFur follows by discussing the applications of special education requirements to a health service like dysphagia. Claire Miller addresses strategies to optimize communication between school and medically based speech-language pathologists. This topic is further elaborated upon by Bailey and Lugg in their article on avoiding conflicts in school-based management of dysphagia. Finally, O'Donoghue and Hegyi offer Food for Thought regarding training and competency issues for dysphagia management in the schools. Thank you to all our authors for sharing their time and for the excellent quality of their contributions.
