Speech-language pathologists have extensive knowledge of swallowing and feeding disorders. In addition, they have expertise in all aspects of communication disorders that include cognition, language, and behavioral interactions, many of which may affect the diagnosis and management of swallowing and feeding disorders. Because of the complexity of management of swallowing and feeding disorders, speech-language pathologists and other professionals work as a team with families, caregivers, and patients.
