Clinical evaluation, both instrumental and noninstrumental, plays an important role in the swallowing assessment of the patients with dysphagia. The gathered information from thorough evaluation contributes the presence of dysphagia, dysphagia severity level, rehabilitation planning, and both the problem and the potential solution. The dysphagia screening, clinical and instrumental assessment, and new perspectives in advanced swallowing assessment will be described in this chapter.
