MS Neuro TV: Speech and Swallowing Issues That Can Affect People With MS
May 10, 2022
Sign up for this program to learn about common speech problems that can occur with multiple sclerosis, such as vocal weakness, slurred speech, dysarthria, and dysphonia.
Presented by Caroline Conway, MA-SLP. Graduate Clinician Caroline Conway is a second-year graduate student at The Ohio State University studying speech-language pathology. After her mother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2015, she developed an interest in working with patients with neurologic conditions. Through a partnership with Dr. Aaron Boster, Caroline completed a topic specialization entitled “The Speech-Language Pathologist’s Role in Service Provision to the Multiple Sclerosis Patient.” This project focuses on clinical concerns related to speech, swallowing, and cognition in the MS patient. In her clinical practice, Caroline is passionate about advocacy and health literacy to help make the patient an informed member of the decision-making team.
