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 my son's rehabilitation stay at the Hegau-Jugendwerk. Our son benefited greatly from it and so I am delighted that we were able to persuade Christina Rauber (MSc and speech therapist) and Dr. med. Paul Diesener (former head 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 at the Hegau-Jugendwerk neurological rehabilitation clinic for children, adolescents and young adults 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, nutritional and swallowing problems, because there is no one-size-fits-all approach, especially for rare diseases. Our motto is therefore: no treatment without prior diagnosis. The focus is on the child! And: every child is unique.

Focal points:

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