Clinical Management of Swallowing Disorders Workbook, Fourth Edition is designed to aid instructors in the delivery of content and to enhance and reinforce student comprehension alongside the graduate-level textbook, Clinical Management of Swallowing Disorders, Fourth Edition. The textbook addresses the needs of students who will treat swallowing disorders as well as clinicians who currently treat swallowing disorders in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, and private outpatient clinics. The fourth edition has been extensively revised and includes two new chapters.

The workbook reflects these updates and covers all chapters in the textbook. The workbook contains true or false, multiple-choice, and fill-in-the-blank questions, along with study topics related to each chapter of the textbook. The questions are closely connected to the textbook, allowing students to review chapter material and quiz themselves in an efficient manner.
