As a med SLP, you've likely received an instrumental report or two in your career. But what do you do when it leaves you with more questions than answers? My guest this week is asking me the tough questions on behalf of SNF (and every other setting that receives these reports) SLPs everywhere!
In this episode of SYP, I have a conversation unlike any other in SYP history with Gavin Levy, MA, CCC-SLP entitled, Swallow Instrumentals Through a Critical Thinking Prism.
After meeting at ASHA, Gavin brought up the idea of this conversation but was anticipating being a listener, not the interviewer. Once you listen, you'll agree that he was the best SLP for the job. Gavin asks some tough and stimulating questions that need to be asked of our field! He brings his passion, enthusiasm, genuine inquisitive nature, and desire to learn to this chat and leaves you eager for part two.

In this episode, you'll hear about:
*What's an instrumental really worth? Its weight in gold? And are they all worth the same?
*What is considered SLP competency for administering a swallow instrumental?
*What time constraints do SLPs face that may affect the validity of an instrumental study?
Stay tuned for part two of this conversation next week!
