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 Centre. Our son benefited greatly from it and so I am pleased that we were able to win Christina Rauber (MSc and speech therapist) and Dr. med. Paul Diesener (former head doctor of early rehabilitation at the Hegau-Jugendwerk Gailingen) to present their concept in an online lecture. All those affected and their relatives, but also their doctors and therapists are invited - despite many years of use, the concept is not known to everyone in the professional world. The two speakers will present the concept and will be available to answer questions.

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 to breathing problems, dealing with saliva, feeding and swallowing problems, because there can be no one-size-fits-all approach, especially for rare diseases. Our motto is therefore: no therapy without prior diagnosis. The focus is on the child! And: every child is unique.
Areas of focus:
- Swallowing diagnostics by flexible endoscopic evaluation of the swallowing act (FEES)
- Saliva management with capsaicin, belladonna and sialanar
- Nutrition with PEG
