The present article, therefore, reviews the therapeutic interventions offered by speech and language pathologist in managing adult dysphagia and its efficacy data. Literature was searched and all the therapeutic interventions offered were included and studies were quoted mentioning their efficacy. In general, positive therapy effects were found.
