Testimonial from one of our former delegates

I attended your paediatric dysphagia training in 2002! It was fantastic and I have used the Jays and the fantastic information ever since. What stood out the most was the ability to make a hypothesis , emphasising the SLTs skills and knowledge in this area. I found as a clinician in health the assessment really helped especially in the community, it made my notes and report writing so much easier and well structured.
