Discovering the clear concept of Dysphagia & Dysphasia
Clinical competence to handle the challenge of a new frontier
There are two relatively common medical conditions that are treated by the same therapist and afflict the same type of patient — in most cases, these individuals are victims of stroke. Both of these conditions are caused by neurological damage to the brain that comes from an injury or a stroke. Both Dysphagia and Dysphasia are treated by speech therapists and both of these conditions tamper with a person’s ability to control their muscles in the mouth and throat.
Dysphasia is difficulty in speaking, whereas Dysphagia is difficulty in swallowing. These two terms are closely intertwined and interrelated, however, there is a distinction between the two. This course will delve into the nitty-gritty of these medical conditions, what are some of the causes for them and what can be done to mitigate the problem.
By grasping and fully understanding the technical complexities of these medical conditions, you will be able to:
– Diagnose and treat patients suffering from Dysphasia or Dysphagia
– Comprehend speech and therapy discrepancies and produce a treatment plan for the patient
– Better understand the needs and sufferings of the patient and teach caregivers and caretakers on how to ease the burden of the patient
