Are you tired of boring dysphagia exercises? Do your patients seem to feel like dysphagia rehabilitation is a chore? Well, you're in luck. Dysphagia in a Jiff: Workouts for Adult Clients combines fun exercise routines with dysphagia rehabilitation exercises for a way to engage even the most uninterested clients. How many times have we begun a New-Year's resolution, only to abandon it because we had no motivation?
This book, feisty and encouraging, features 10 weeks worth of dysphagia workouts, with or without props. It even includes information on the research behind each exercise presented, and a list of references in the index.
Don't want your client to know the challenge of each workout? No problem. Easy coding system included with the life-cycle of the butterfly "theme", so you as the clinician know exactly how many swallows to expect, so you can tailor each session to the client appropriately.
