The speech language pathologist typically participates in the evaluation and treatment of dysphagia in the oral and pharyngeal stages of swallow. Bedside examination and a modified barium swallow permit examination of the neuromuscular components of the swallow and place the patient at minimal risk of aspiration. Compensatory and therapeutic procedures are then implemented to improve oropharyngeal function.
