Dysphagia is a difficulty in swallowing, either solids or liquids when there is a problem with the neural control of the swallowing process. Screening assessments for Dysphagia are essential as the severity progresses to the determine if there is a danger of aspiration or before malnutrition occurs from an insufficient caloric intake.

Signs of Dysphagia include trouble chewing food, solids or liquids accidentally entering into your airway, choking, aspiration pneumonia, a feeling your food is stuck in your throat, regurgitation, and reflux.
