007 – Yvette McCoy, M.S. CCC-SLP, BCS-S – Advocating for the Tools You Need to Do Your Job, The Predictors of Aspiration, and the Evidence-Based Triad

This is episode 007 of the Swallow Your Pride podcast, and on today’s episode we have Yvette McCoy. She is Board Certified Specialist in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders, and owns a private practice clinic in Maryland called Speak Well Solutions. Yvette is also an adjunct instructor at the University of Maryland in College Park.

Yvette has over 25 years of experience in the field, and specializes in treating dysphagia in our aging population. Yvette is so stinking down to earth, very real, and one of the kindest people you will meet. She loves to help younger clinicians (and I’m secretly very jealous of her grad students), and she is passionate about teaching EBP in dysphagia.

Yvette has training in the area of FEES (Fiberoptic Endoscopic Examination of Swallowing) and MBSImP (Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile), she is co-creator of the Dysphagia Therapy app through Tactus therapy, and she also has 2 CEU courses through Northern Speech Services called The Cranial Nerve Examination: Integrating Assessment And Treatment In Dysphagia Management and also Gauging The Aging Swallow: 3-Part Course For The Medical SLP.

In this episode we discuss how to advocate to your boss for the tools you need to do your job, we discuss Dr. Langmore Predictors of Aspiration paper, and we discuss the importance of the evidence-based triad.
