Other Presenter(s)



This proposal presents evaluation on the Feeding and Swallowing Clinic of the WVU Center for Excellence in Disabilities and clients' unmet needs in accessing the services of the clinic. It further presents findings on how client unmet needs pose as a barrier in assessing or implementing treatment strategies. This study is important as it provides the context, or environment within which assessment or treatment is carried out.
