Abstract

Dysphagia incidence can be up to 90% of patients after CVA disease and most of the patients demonstrate speech problems as well as dysphagia. The term of swallowing includes the entire process of deglutition from the placement of food in the mouth until the food enters to the esophagus through the oral and pharyngeal cavities. Swallowing functions share common anatomic structures and characteristics of physiology with speech in many aspects. Therefore, speech-language pathologists can help people with swallowing disorders. Herein the approaches and rationales for improving speech and swallowing functions in patients with stroke need to be discussed depending on the lesion sites of the brain.
