We will assess your needs and make recommendations about your eating and drinking. Together, we will develop a management plan for your unique difficulties and discuss it with you and your family.


If we think it is necessary, we will refer you for a video-fluoroscopy, which is a moving x-ray of how you swallow. Adults are referred to an appropriate local hospital for adults, while children are referred to Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
