The Complex Swallowing Clinic at Children’s Health℠ provides expert diagnosis and treatment solutions for children who have concerns of swallowing problems or have developed swallowing problems. Our otolaryngologists and speech therapists work together to provide comprehensive and compassionate care for your child.
When your child has a swallowing problem, it can cause problems with feeding that can lead to poor nutrition and failure to grow. Swallowing improperly can cause fluid to travel into your child’s lungs and create an infection or pneumonia. Many social issues are also linked with eating difficulties.
You will need a care team that is taking into account all of their physical and mental needs as well as working with your family to manage their condition. Our experienced team includes a wide range of specialists, including feeding experts, therapists and social workers to assist with any of the associated issues your child may be experiencing and set them on a path to better health.
