After a stroke, one of the basic needs for a patient is to be able to swallow in order to eat and then to have the motor skills to resume speaking. Daniels (speech pathology, Baylor School of Medicine) and Huckabee (communication disorders, University of Canterbury, NZ) give therapists and clinicians a thorough training manual covering assessment, examinations and treatment options. While intended for professionals, the writing is clear enough for concerned family members and friends of the patient to find it helpful.

DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Houston, Texas and is Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Baylor College of Medicine.

Maggie-Lee Huckabee, Ph.D. Senior Lecturer Department of Communication Disorders, University of Canterbury Senior Researcher Van der Veer Institute for Parkinson's and Brain Research in Christchurch, New Zealand Maggie-Lee Huckabee, Ph.D., practiced as a clinician for thirteen years before the frustration of never knowing "the answers" led her to an academic career. She is now senior lecturer in the Department of Communication Disorders, University of Canterbury and senior researcher at the Van der Veer Institute for Parkinson's and Brain Research in Christchurch, New Zealand. She still hasn't found "the answers" but is trying, with research interests focusing on the complexities of behaviorally-driven neural adaptation and biomechanical change leading to swallowing recovery. Dr. Huckabee has a great time supervising terrific, emerging researchers, overseeing a busy laboratory and enjoying the beauty of New Zealand.Review:
Stacey A. Skoretz, MSc, CCC-SLP, PhD Candidate, Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, (2009): "With its clinically relevant content and well-written text, this book provides information both for the junior and senior dysphagia clinician. The authors provide balanced and objective information which is well-grounded in research. The book's up-to-date discussion of challenging issues provide the readers with insights and methods by which to approach their roles and responsibilities." Grace McCann, Deputy Editor, Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, Bulletin, (2009): "Written by two very experienced practicing SLTs, each with a very solid research background, the book provides the reader with a thorough description of the current evidence base for the assessment and management of dysphagia. Among the 22 chapters, clear tables of evidence are provided, for example on the epidemiology of dysphagia in stroke, clinical features of aspiration, and rehabilitation strategies." Julia Edgar, PhD (Washington University School of Medicine), Doody's Review Service, (2009): "This book provides a unique level of detail on dysphagia in the stroke population, thus making it a valuable contribution to the literature. The authors are clearly in tune with commonly occurring clinical practices as they provide substantial rationale to support the need for adequate objective testing as a prelude to appropriate intervention."
