Help out with some much needed research
My name is Claire Layfield, I am a speech pathologist who has been working with people with dysphagia since 2004. While working, I often wondered if there was more I could offer for people with swallowing difficulties. These wonderings are now official and I have started my PhD investigating the benefits of two different intensive treatments for dysphagia.
These treatments aim to rehabilitate swallow function by exercising and stimulating the weak muscles. By targeting the underlying impairment, it is hoped that swallowing function will improve allowing people to enjoy more variety in their diets.
We are looking people aged 18-80
who have swallowing difficulties following a stroke
. There are no costs involved
in participating in the study.
