Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

Our study examined demographic and clinical indicators of aspiration in pediatric patients. Knowing which indicators of aspiration best predict modified barium swallow study (MBSS) outcomes will aid in decision making for MBSS recommendation. Developing guidelines based on the findings help occupational therapists promote evidence-based interventions.
