"The authors intend this book for clinical practitioners working with swallowing disorders. However, with the general overview of swallowing assessment and treatment in the first half of the book, it easily could be adapted for use in a graduate course. The authors have extensive experience as clinical researchers in this area. The first part of the book is an overview of swallowing evaluations and treatments, setting the groundwork for the rest of the book. The second part discusses specific movement disorders and syndromes, using a consistent format that provides information on signs and symptoms, quality of life issues, health consequences, and evaluation and treatment approaches. The authors frequently refer back to earlier chapters, providing continuity throughout. The appendixes provide clinical measurement tools for clinicians...No other books are dedicated solely to dysphagia in movement disorders..." --Kerry Lenius, PhD, CCC-SLP, Florida State University, Doody's Review Service
