Dysphagia presentation and treatment differs at various stages of life. Assessing and Treating Dysphagia: A Lifespan Perspective reflects significant knowledge and pearls from esteemed adult and pediatric swallowing disorders experts. Debra Suiter and Memorie Gosa have compiled a book of unique depth and breadth with contributions from communication science experts including speech-language pathologists and physicians. The textbook provides comprehensive coverage of swallowing disorders from birth to old age, including clinical, professional, and cultural ethical considerations.
