Introduction. Speech therapy treatment on patients who have a neurogenically induced dysphagia begins at hospital, in the intensive rehabilitation units. This study shows some of the difficulties found dealing with and orienting the family and the patient from a therapy point of view, mainly during his return to home surroundings. Development. To better understand the dysphagic situation, normal swallowing steps (oral pharyngeal and esophageal) steps have been described These were then related to the dysphagic problems, with their evaluation, classification and characteristics. Under dysphagia rehabilitation the therapeutic guidance should be lead by the appropriate nutritional demands and prevent aspirations. Some of the therapeutic procedures for treating and controlling neurogenic dysphagia have been described (head posture control tactile and thermal stimuli, etc.). The author questions the difficulties found controlling orientation and maintaining conduct outside the hospital environment, principally with patients at risk from aspirations.
