December 7, 2022, online lecture: The Gailinger concept for dealing with swallowing disorders

from | September 19, 2022

I was able to get to know the "Gailinger concept for dealing with swallowing disorders (not only) in children" during a rehabilitation stay of my son at the Hegau Youth Office. Our son has benefited a lot from this and so I am pleased that we have Christina Rauber (MSc and speech therapist) and Dr. med. Paul Jenener (former head physician of early rehabilitation at the Hegau-Jugendwerk Gailingen) to present their concept in an online lecture. Despite many years of use, the concept is not known to everyone in the professional world. The two speakers presented the concept in an online lecture and were available to answer questions. The recording is permanently available here:

The Gailinger concept for dealing with swallowing disorders (not only) in children

Since 1994, the neurological rehabilitation clinic for children, adolescents and young adults Hegau-Jugendwerk in Gailingen has developed a special concept for dealing with swallowing disorders and presented it for the first time in 2007. It sometimes includes unconventional, but above all individually adapted treatment approaches for breathing problems, dealing with saliva, nutrition and swallowing problems, because there can be no formula F, especially for rare diseases. That's why our motto is: no therapy without prior diagnosis. The focus is on the child! What's more, every child is unique.


  • Swallowing diagnostics through flexible endoscopic evaluation of the swallowing act (FEES)
  • Saliva Management with Capsaicin, Belladonna and Sialanar
  • Nutrition with PEG
  • Storage
