Welcome to London Paediatric Dysphagia CEN (PDCEN)

Welcome to the official website for the London Paediatric Dysphagia Clinical Excellence Network (formerly Paediatric Dysphagia Special Interest Group (PDSIG)).

We are a group of Speech and Language Therapists working with infants and children with feeding and swallowing problems in all different settings, and we meet twice a year in order to maintain and build our knowledge and skills within this field.

This website is designed to compliment our study days and includes a Members Only section where resources and discussion boards can be accessed and shared.

If you are already a member, please log in to PCDEN to access all areas of the website, including reduced-rate booking for the next CEN. To become a member, please Register to become a member of PDCEN.
