Formatted Abstract/Summary
Purpose: There is a significant shortfall between available speech pathology services and the number of individuals requiring dysphagia management, particularly in rural areas. Consequently, there is an urgent need to explore new and innovative service solutions to provide greater access to speech pathology services for dysphagic patients. The aim of this study was to examine the validity and reliability of conducting remote dysphagia assessments via a custombuilt telerehabilitation system.

Conclusion: Telerehabilitation has the potential to be a viable and valuable method for conducting remote clinical assessments of swallow function. This data supports further development of this new service delivery model.
