In her debut book, Chasing the Swallow: Truth, Science, and Hope for Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Disorders, Michelle Dawson, MS CCC-SLP, CLC dispels the myth that behavioral feeding aversions are the most common source of a child’s refusal to eat. Michelle guides the reader on how to uncover the true medical etiology driving their patient’s pediatric feeding disorder by engaging in interprofessional education and practice with the care team. Chasing the Swallow, inspired by the intimate conversations that have been the joy of “First Bite: Fed, Fun, Functional,” a Speech Therapy Podcast, enlightens the reader as to why the patient and caregivers are the core of clinical decision making for evaluation and treatment in any child’s pediatric feeding disorder. Chasing the Swallow serves as a compass rose on how to make your professional voice heard in the process of creating a holistic village, embracing a variety of members from allied health to nonprofit community supports, for each individual child’s journey. In true Michelle fashion, readers are inspired to lean in and take the next step to advocate for each infant, toddler, and child on their caseload, all while laughing through her relatable and heartfelt personal experiences. Come on Folks, We have a bolus to chase!

Praise for Chasing the Swallow:

“Chasing the Swallow helps clinicians look past the mouth into the multiple layers of influence on eating and mealtimes. It takes a team! Michelle “gets” that feeding struggles are hard for parents and that they are central in the team effort needed to support these children.” Marsha Dunn Klein OTR/L, MEd, FAOTA Author of Anxious Eaters, Anxious Mealtimes

“Pure Gold! Every Page is Pure Nerdy SLP Gold!” – Natasha McNeill, MCD, CCC-SLP, Pediatric Home Health

“Michelle has written an essential guide to navigating and collaborating within the vast and often confusing world of Pediatric Feeding Disorders. Her practical wisdom on working with and learning from other practitioners would be enough to recommend this book, but it is her obvious passion and joy for her work that truly sets this book apart. Keep this book as a reference or better yet, read it cover-to-cover. You won’t be disappointed.” – Tessa V. Gonzalez, MD FAAP, Board Certified General Pediatrician

“Michelle has done an amazing job writing this book about pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders. Her book has a mixture of humor, science, and personal clinical experiences and is a great resource for any clinician looking to further their knowledge of the world of PFD. I love that it gives everyone a chance to experience what riding shotgun in her car as a graduate clinician would be like!”- Stephanie Schank, MSP, CCC-SLP, Inpatient/Outpatient Children’s Hospital
