Handout: You Swallow Spiders in Your Sleep and 10 Other Swallowing Misconceptions

This handout is designed for speech-language pathologists needing to set the record straight on the complexities of swallow precautions and the need for all precautions and strategies to be individualized on a patient-by-patient basis. The handout addresses the following misconceptions with evidence-based information around the following:

  • Chin tuck is not for everyone.
  • Not everyone with dysphagia needs thickened liquids.
  • Pureed does not equal thickened. Thickened does not equal pureed.
  • The straw confusion.
  • Oral sponges and oral care.
  • Lack of teeth and oral care.
  • Feeding tubes and aspiration.
  • Hidden thin liquids- ice cream, juicy fruit, soups, etc
  • Not coughing doesn't always mean no dysphagia
  • Coughing doesn't always mean dysphagia

Included in: Bundle: Dysphagia Patient, Staff, and Family Education.
