“This app is so useful for the SLP in any setting who works with dysphagia patients. It is well-organized and easy to find what you are after. I appreciate the cranial nerve section and have used it in acute care to confirm my assessment and make sure I was not missing something. In the "Therapy Finder" the exercises, compensatory strategies, and maneuvers are all research-based and include clear instructions for both the SLP and the patient.”
