# e105   Rationale For Using Exercise In Dysphagia Treatment

by JoAnne Robbins, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S

0.25 CEUs

$ 44.00

Available Spring 2017

Provides a thorough overview of dysphagia, focusing on detailed evidence of sensorimotor learning while examining reflexes and voluntary control. Examines neural control in depth with a focus on sensorimotor nerves and neural plasticity. Discusses the effects of aging and sarcopenia on healthy swallowing then moves to detailed analysis of disordered swallowing, using examples from research with stroke and Alzheimer's patients. Explains strengthening and resistance training, showing how the physiological and clinical outcomes provide the most novel and effective rehabilitative treatments for improved swallowing. The strengthening protocol is shown to improve adaptation in the brain and reduce aspiration, pneumonia, length of hospital stay and readmissions. Offered for 0.25 CEUs – 2.5 contact hours

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses. For the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.

ASHA CE Registry:  During the enrollment process, if you select to receive ASHA credit for this course and if you provide your ASHA number, NSS will automatically submit your CEU information to the ASHA CE Registry after successful course completion (80% on post test). This submission happens once per month, during the first week of the month. For example, if you complete your course on November 7th, NSS will submit all November online course CEUs to ASHA during the first week of December. When ASHA inputs the information into their database, they will mark the course as completed on the last day of the month in which it was completed, so November 30th using this example. The certificate of completion available for you to print immediately, however, will reflect the actual completion date, November 7th in this example. Due to ASHA processing procedures please allow 2-3 weeks, from the submission date, for the course to appear on your ASHA transcript.
