Welcome to September!
Even though it’s been a while since I was in school, you really can’t get away from all the “Back to School” mania being promoted…yikes!One thing I will say for all of this promotion, it does really get me in the zone of looking for ways to further my clinical education in dysphagia. In case it has the same effect on you, this month I thought I’d share with you one of my FAVORITE sources: Dysphagia Café.Founded by SLP Jonathan Waller in 2013, Dysphagia Café is an online global resource community full of great learning opportunities to learn about dysphagia over the course of an individual’s lifespan. Jonathan shares original content from leaders in dysphagia research and practice and provides a RELIABLE source for quality, evidence-based content. Check it out here.


I personally love the enrichment webinars that provide a full range of topics on everything from special considerations in trachs and vents to infant feeding interventions and managing a complex outpatient caseload. And as much as I appreciate high-quality and informative webinars, my favorite section of Dysphagia Café is the “Coffee Break”—a collection of essays that focus on the “other” parts of being an SLP—what it means to be a leader, and perspectives on different practice settings; there are even SLP gift ideas! The best part is, each of these can be read within just a few minutes.I hope you love Dysphagia Café as much as I do! Let me know YOUR favorite educational resources!
