Swallowing Awareness Day highlights how dysphagia can affect people’s lives and how speech and language therapy can help transform negative experiences into positive ones.   There are many conditions that can affect a person’s ability to swallow but it is our belief that every individual should have the support enabling them to eat and drink safely.
