The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders' Speech-Language Pathology Clinical Instructor Voice-Fluency-Neurogenic team completed a continuing education unit on the McNeill Dysphagia Therapy Program (MDTP) in Orlando this weekend. MDTP is a systematic dysphagia rehabilitation program that uses swallowing as an exercise to rehabilitate the swallowing mechanism. This course is the beginning of the team members' pursuits to grow in their clinical knowledge and expertise in the area of dysphagia. Congratulations to speech-language pathologists and clinical instructors Mahwish Ahmed, Mary Pyfrom, Kelli Gorajec, and Emily Glass on this achievement!
