Clinical Evaluation of Swallow

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The clinical swallow evaluation, or bedside swallow evaluation, provides swallow specialists with the foundation for identification and management of swallowing disorders. The process of completing a clinical swallow evaluation allows for hypothesis generation and testing regarding etiology of and interventions for dysphagia and helps the clinician to determine what kinds of additional data need to be obtained. For pediatric patients in particular, data obtained during clinical evaluation will streamline diagnosis and treatment, guide decision-making during instrumental assessments, and help to establish the positive rapport that is essential for effective intervention in pediatric patients with dysphagia.
