Welcome to the NFOSD Forum!
Welcome to the NFOSD Community Forum! This forum was created in 2015 with the purpose connecting those impacted by dysphagia with others – this includes patients, families, caregivers, friends, and professionals who help treat swallowing disorders. We have transitioned our community forum to using a Facebook platform for usability and access purposes. We have kept older posts viewable to our community on this Forum page. Below you will find links to our new Forums, one designed for adults and one geared towards parents/caregivers of children and infants with feeding and swallowing disorders.

The goal of this forum is to share individual and collective experiences with chronic dysphagia (i.e., the complete and irreversible inability to swallow) and to provide emotional and functional support among fellow sufferers whose lives have become unalterably changed and socially marginalized by not being able to eat.
