Abstract

The speech language pathologist has a vital management role in patients with voice and swallow concerns, as well as stroke patients and patients with fluency problems. This article summarizes the variety of speech and swallow rehabilitation that adult patients may require or seek. The case examples allow the reader to base the clinical decision-making process within the context of a patient presentation and elucidate the role of speech and language pathology services for the primary care provider in order to refer patients with symptoms and concerns to the right provider early in their medical care.
