Many Thanks to the National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders for providing this valuable resource!




The National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders
is excited to announce its

Online Swallowing Support Group

Join the Support Group:

It is estimated that 560 million people worldwide suffer from a swallowing disorder. While the National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders has helped to establish several local swallowing support groups, we recognize that this is not enough. 

Therefore, we have created an online, interactive support group using Facebook. This group is open to all those impacted by swallowing disorders including patients, family members, caregivers, and friends as a way to easily share your stories, resources, questions, answers, and support with others.

Clinicians are welcome to join this group, however, because this is an NFOSD-sponsored group, we kindly ask that they do not share medical advice. We understand that each individual is different -- the cause of a swallowing disorder, the signs and symptoms, and the effect of the disorder on the individual can vary greatly. We welcome the expertise, resources, and support that clinicians may be able to offer to others in this group. 

If you have questions about how to join the group, please email us at
