Quantitative study, transverse and observational study, in the period January to March 2010, in the Center Advanced Diagnosis and Treatment Trajan Almeida, in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará. The sample was composed by 40 individuals, with mean age 23.5 years, 35 (87.5 %) female and five (12.5%) male gender. was carried out an assessment videofluoroscopy swallowing in net consistencies (15 ml of water added to 15 ml of barium net), liquid paste (25ml of barium net), paste (two spoons of 5ml of thickening for 30ml of barium net) and solid (1/2 cracker waffer immersed the barium net), where the individuals remained seated and the images were carried out in the lateral position.
