Treating and Managing Dysphagia with Dementia is a two part series for physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists. Each part may be taken independently. This series focuses on the variables associated with cognitively impaired patients, dysphagia instruction and memory functions necessary for learning and dysphagia stimulation programming.
Part 2 describes dysphagia management therapy based on the patients diagnosis, stage and memory difficulties. Specific therapeutic approaches will be described in detail and will be combined with examples of treatment for dysphagia. In addition, specific disorders such as Alzheimers, frontotemporal dementia, picks disease, vascular dementia, Parkinsons and Huntingtons disease will be highlighted. Each of these specific diseases will include a description of the prominent dysphagia symptoms associated with that disease as well as recommended therapeutic strategies for dysphagia management. There will also be a discussion of neurotransmitters, medications affecting dysphagia, risk factors, feeding dependency, normal brain aging, medications affecting memory and vitamins/nutrients and herbs influencing dementia.


On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Discuss the differences between declarative and non-declarative memory systems and how these differences influence dysphagia management.

2. Verbalize the three ways that medications can affect eating and swallowing ability.

3. Determine the risk factors associated with dementia that affects dysphagia management
