Welcome to the American Board on Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders 


We invite you to take a look around our website to get answers to your questions about swallowing disorders.  You can also locate a swallowing specialist near you.  If you cannot find what you are looking for on the consumer pages please feel free to contact our administrative office by email at for additional assistance.





Why do we need Specialty Certification in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders?

Swallowing disorders, or dysphagia, can lead to serious and even fatal complications if not evaluated accurately and treated effectively. If you are a person with a swallowing problem, you are aware of the critical need to find a specialist. You need someone who can provide you with a comprehensive evaluation and provide appropriate and effective therapy. If you identify a clinician with BCS-S, you can be confident that you will be treated by someone who is extremely well qualified. Your goal – to return to as normal a diet as possible, will be most likely attained if you get help from a specialist.
