Dysphagia Research ClinicOur graduate Speech and Language Pathology program has been the home of the well known Edward D. Mysak Clinic for Communication Disorders for many decades.
This year, Dr. Malandraki, in collaboration with the Clinic Director, Dr. Youse, and the Clinic Assistant Director, Ms. Wagner, have established a specialty clinic offering specialized services to individuals suffering from swallowing disorders, aka dysphagia.
The new DYSPHAGIA RESEARCH CLINIC features a complete and high quality Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) station, electromyographic (EMG) and respiratory physiology biofeedback devices, oral manometers (IOPI), respiratory muscle strengthening devices, and sensory stimulation equipment and materials.
All evaluations are completed by Dr. Malandraki with the help of graduate clinicians. All treatment sessions are provided by qualified graduate students who are under the direct guidance and supervision of Dr. Malandraki and Ms. Wagner.
Therapy is always individualized to cover every patient's needs. Our clinic is committed to evidence-based practice and to providing patients with options that have been researched and found to be successful.
Dr. Chandra Ivey, Otolaryngologist, as well as Dr. Justine Sheppard, and Ms. Bernadine Gagnon, pediatric dysphagia specialists, are also affiliated with the Dysphagia Clinic.
