Proposal Title

The Effects of Sensory Enhancement on the Acceptability of Nectar Thick Liquids

Topic

Communication Sciences and Disorders

Description

The purpose of the research study was to determine whether sensory enhancements improve the acceptability of nectar thick liquid for patients with dysphagia. Each participant was presented with four trials: (1) nectar thick liquid with no sensory enhancement, (2) nectar thick liquid with color, (3) nectar thick liquid with smell, and (4) nectar thick liquid with taste. Participants compared the acceptability of each trial, using a visual analog scale to rank the four trials from most acceptable to least acceptable. Results will be discussed as they relate to factors that affect acceptability of nectar thick liquid.
