How to get kids to swallow pills

Child-Pill1

For those who have a hard time swallowing pills, here is a promising solution!

Dr. Bonnie Kaplan and her students at the University of Calgary have developed and tested ways to assist people who have a difficult time swallowing pills.

By using pill-sized candy and by teaching various head positions when swallowing, Dr. Kaplan and her students even had success with participants “who had never successfully swallowed a pill in spite of much instruction and coaxing”.

In fact, their methods were so effective that participants who practiced and followed the researchers’ guidelines were consistently able to swallow pills successfully by the end of a two-week training period.
