Title: Making an informed decision : oral motor treatment in pediatric dysphagia
Author: Thompson, Amy Lynn
Abstract: The purpose of this report is to review critically research focused on oral motor based treatment for pediatric swallowing disorders with the aim of assisting speech-language pathologists in making informed clinical intervention decisions. Oral motor based treatment has become a popular intervention approach among some speech-language pathologists, but the evidence supporting the approach is limited. This report will discuss research studies and review articles with high levels of evidence of treatment efficacy and propose when to use oral motor based treatment approaches in clinical intervention for pediatric swallowing disorders.
