“I loved the clinical application and have already used the MASA spreadsheet in practice. Much of what was covered was a review for me, so I appreciated being able to increase the playback speed. There were also a lot of good ‘nuggets' in here where I liked the ability to slow it down and replay! She is super sweet and articulates well.” – NB
“Some insurance companies are requiring more objective information for all our evaluations and it was hard for us to think of ways to quantify swallows (other than doing an instrumental). I really like that some of the measures presented are fairly quick and provide therapists (and insurance companies) with the information we need. I also liked having the opportunity to practice some of these skills with the presenter.”
“The course addressed a wide range of assessments but broke them down effectively so that we could work through the whys and hows of the protocols.”
“Loved the practical examples of how to use measurable outcomes, especially with mbss and fees.”
