We are so excited to finally announce our new CEU workshop series!
Broadening the Scope of Dysphagia Treatment is a 1-day course where we'll discuss assessment and current evidence based treatment techinques.
This is a very hands-on course where participants will divide into groups to create treatment plans based on swallow study and clinical assessment case studies provided.
Broadening the Scope of Dysphagia Treatment will first be held at Integris Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation in Oklahoma City on May 25th. Due to the interactive nature of the course, slots are limited. You can register here.
If you'd like to bring this course to your hospital or facility, have your administration contact us at email@example.com to discuss arrangements and details.
This weekend our team was in OKC for the Oklahoma Speech-Language Hearing Association annual conference where we were honored to present to our SLP colleagues from throughout the state on Dysphagia Assessment and Management in Rapidly Progressive Diseases. We also had a booth demonstrating our mobile FEES/swallow study equipment. This year's conference had a great lineup of speakers, and it was great connecting with colleagues from throughout the region!
Our speech pathologists were honored to be invited to speak at the American Parkinson Disease Association- Oklahoma Chapter's annual education conference in Tulsa this weekend. There were around 350 attendees and several speakers at the event. Stacy and I presented on the effects of Parkinson's disease on voice and swallowing musculature and how these issues can be properly assessed and treated. Our crew also had a booth at the health fair among several other medical facilities in the community. If you have any questions about Parkinson's disease or how you can get plugged into services and programs to help, feel free to reach out to us and we're happy to help direct you!
I was asked a few months ago to submit an article to the ASHA Leader sharing the story of SNR's beginning /growth and discussing some of the ways we've connected with the local community. The article entitled "Widening Her Circle" was published in the August 2018 edition of the ASHA Leader, a monthly magazine published by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association for nationally certified speech-language pathologists.

At SNR we are proud to be a teaching facility and accept interns from in-state and out-of-state university graduate programs each spring and fall semester. We are now excited to announce our new summer internship/scholarship program which we are launching this year! First and second year speech pathology graduate students from any university are encouraged to apply each spring for that summer's rotation. The recipient receives a $2,000 scholarship to be awarded in the fall and completes a part time (2 day per week) internship rotation at SNR for 12 weeks in the summer to gain hands on experience with a very unique caseload of complex swallowing and voice cases.
This year we had several applicants from different graduate programs, all of which were very competitive. Congratulations to graduate student Kally Sommers from Northeastern State University who was selected for this summer's internship and scholarship opportunity! Welcome to SNR! We are looking forward to mentoring you this summer.
At SNR we love raising awareness of the latest evidence-based practices pertaining to our specialty areas of swallowing and voice diagnostics and treatment. On March 27, 2018 we hosted a presentation on fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) procedures and videostroboscopy voice assessments to our speech pathology colleagues from St. John Medical Center, Hillcrest Medical Center, St. Francis Medical Center, and many local skilled nursing facilities and home health agencies. The presentation included a live endoscopy demonstration as well as discussion of several abnormal finding clips from various patient cases. Thank you to everyone who attended locally and to everyone long distance who watched our live stream of the presentation. If you have any questions about FEES or videostroboscopy or how these tools can help your patients, please reach out to us and we're happy to help. We now offer mobile FEES and videostrobe at bedside for inpatients and are happy to act as ongoing consultants to our SLP colleagues in hospital, SNF, and HH settings to help them provide better care to their swallowing and voice patients.
