The Florida Dysphagia Institute was first established between 1998 and 2004, it began with a conference held every year in Orlando in July. The first FDI was attended by dysphagia specialists from around the world and conducted by a group of six expert clinical SLPs. FDI 2.0 is the next generation of this original concept.
In this rendition The FDI will provide links to educational information that will cover different themes (assessment, treatment, myths and controversies, technology, critical thinking and problem solving.) The intent is to provide a portal for professional engagement and enrichment.
To provide current, evidence-based and clinically relevant information and experiences to clinicians and clinical researchers in the field of dysphagia management. This mission will be approached via an extensive selection of interactive courses and by internet mechanisms to reach the widest possible group of dysphagia clinicians.
