This paper discusses the findings of a study on the Eating Assessment Tool (EAT-10) used on patients with dysphagia. The EAT-10 showed great reliablity, test-retest reproducibility, and criterion-based validity. The data suggest an EAT-10 score of 3 or higher is abnormal. Not only can this assessment tool be used for dysphagia but also other swallowing disorders.
