Course Description

In this episode, Michelle is joined by Edgar “Vince” Clark, M. Ed., CCC/SLP, Past President of the GA Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and 2013 Alumni of the Year for the Dewar College of Education and Human Services at Valdosta State University. Today Vince shares his insights on why the FEEs examination can be an invaluable tool for the pediatric population as the MBSS instrumental examination, and how it offers improved accessibility especially for those populations that don’t have easy access to a radiology suite. Sit back and let the soothing Southern drawl of these two calm your nerves and lift your spirits while they talk about all thangs noses and fiber-optic cameras!


By the end of this PodCourse, participants will be able to identify and describe:

  • The differences between FEEs vs. MBSS.
  • Advantages of FEEs for patient accessibility.
  • Benefits of FEEs for pediatric patients.
