About the Keynote Speaker:

       Scott A. Dailey, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, has worked as a clinician in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) for the past 16 years.  He earned his doctorate at the University of Iowa in Speech and Hearing Sciences in 2009 where his dissertation investigated oral motor skills in children with food refusal behaviors.  Dr. Dailey’s primary interests and continuing research work is in pediatrics with specialization in the areas of addressing feeding and swallowing disorders and speech disorders related to cleft lip and palate.   He participates in the ongoing development of the NICU Feeding Standards of Practice and the Pediatric Nurse orientation program on transitioning to oral feeding at UIHC.  Dr. Dailey is a team member for multidisciplinary rounds in the Pediatrics Department at UIHC and holds an appointment as an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, University of Iowa.

       Dr. Dailey has presented invited lectures and workshops on pediatric feeding and cleft speech and swallowing disorders nationally and internationally and has been an author and co-author on articles relating to both pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders and speech disorders relating to cleft lip and palate. Currently, he serves as Assistant Coordinator for AHSA Special Interest Group 5, Speech Science and Orofacial Disorders. In addition, he is an active member of the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association and the Iowa Speech-Language Hearing Association.



       Pediatric feeding and swallowing difficulties are concerning for parents and healthcare professionals because of the possible impact on nutrition, hydration, growth and social interactions.  During development maturation, medical, behavioral and social issues interact and may affect feeding and swallowing.  This presentation will discuss normal development of anatomy and function as it relates to feeding and swallowing.  Feeding and swallowing difficulties often found in neonatal intensive care units, cleft-craniofacial anomalies, and young children will be explored.  Clinical and instrumental evaluation of feeding and swallowing will be described.  Development of intervention plans based on interdisciplinary assessment will also be discussed.  Case examples will be used to facilitate understanding of complex nature of feeding and swallowing.
