December 7, 2022, Online Lecture: The Gailinger Concept for Dealing with Dysphagia.

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 in the Hegau Youth Center. Our son benefited a lot from it and so I am glad that we could win Christina Rauber (MSc and speech therapist) and Dr. med. Paul Diesener (former head physician of early rehabilitation at Hegau-Jugendwerk Gailingen) to present their concept in an online lecture. Despite many years of application, 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, a special concept for dealing with swallowing disorders has been developed in the neurological rehabilitation clinic for children, adolescents and young adults Hegau- Jugendwerk in Gailingen and was presented for the first time in 2007. It includes sometimes unconventional but above all individually adapted treatment approaches for breathing problems, dealing with saliva, feeding and swallowing problems, because there can be no standard procedure, especially for rare diseases. Our motto is therefore: no therapy without prior diagnosis. The child is the center of attention! And: every child is unique.

Areas of focus:

  • Diagnostics of swallowing by flexible endoscopic evaluation of the swallowing act (FEES)
  • Saliva management with capsaicin, belladonna and sialanar
  • Nutrition with PEG
  • Storage
