Swallowing Therapy Training: The Rehabilitation of Dysphagia with The Biber Protocol
This training course pairs the principles of electrophysiology with traditional swallowing exercises in order to re-educate laryngeal muscles in patients with swallowing problems or difficulties. The course provides an overview of patient selection, a rationale for Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) parameter settings, and electrode placement.
Course Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion of the training course, clinicians will be able to:
• Explain Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)
• Describe the properties of electrical stimulation and its impact on muscle tissue
• Describe the patient selection criteria for which NMES is indicated for the treatment of dysphagia
• Identify the characteristics of NMES
• Discuss the properties of Electrodes
• Discuss and demonstrate the application of therapeutic protocol in the treatment of dysphagia
• Describe and justify why there is a continued need for traditional swallowing exercises in conjunction with the therapeutic protocol
• Explain why adjusting the electrical parameters of the Biber Protocol is so important
• Demonstrate eﬀective communication skills in patient education and allied health professionals regarding the candidacy and use of NMES for the treatment of dysphagia

NFOSD Dysphagia Webinar Series: Transitional Foods – Updates on Their Behavior, Use and Benefits in Adult & Pediatric Populations
Date and time: Thu, Jul 23, 2020 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM SGT
This webinar is for healthcare providers, patients and caregivers impacted by dysphagia, and students learning about swallowing disorders.
This presentation will define and categorize types of transitional foods. We will discuss the potential benefits of improved choices, increased textures and ultimately improved dining enjoyment. Use of transitional foods in the pediatric population will be discussed with examples of use presented in specific special needs populations. The IDDSI testing method for transitional foods will be reviewed and the variation in results obtained with this test will be demonstrated between known transitional foods. We will share two research methods of evaluating the dissolution patterns of transitional foods in the oral environment will be described with relevant clinical implications. The external environment (air, humidity, length of exposure) play a significant role in the transitional behavior of these foods and ultimately their safety. The oral environment (amount of saliva, degree of tongue pressure, anterior-posterior transit time) also has a significant impact as well. Both groups of factors will be discussed in detail providing a broader scope of understanding of patient selection, and proper use. Ultimately expanding our knowledge of transitional foods will improve our understanding of use with the goal of improving patient engagement and outcomes.
- Understand the difference between transitional food behaviors in the mouth in comparison to IDDSI benchtop methods.
- Classification of transitional foods and the importance of the oral environment
- Learn the role transitional foods can play in dysphagia management

Free Webinar by NFOSD: Managing Dysphagia in Adults with Intellectual Disability
Date and Time: Wednesday, June 17, 5:00 pm Pacific (June 18, 8.00am Singapore / Malaysia / Philippine )
Adults with intellectual disability are at risk for dysphagia. The unique swallowing, feeding, and behavioral challenges experienced in this population are vital considerations in the assessment and treatment of these patients. This webinar will discuss the nature of dysphagia management in adults with intellectual disability by exploring the current evidence in this area and discuss the clinical experiences of speech pathologists who assess and treat adults with intellectual disability in the Intermediate Care Setting.
At the completion of this webinar, participants will:
- Understand the impacts of dysphagia in people with intellectual disability
- Identify the systems that must be considered in the assessment and treatment of dysphagia in those with intellectual disability
- Anticipate the physical-nutritional needs of those with intellectual disability as they age
- Describe the interdisciplinary team collaborations required to manage dysphagia in this population
