Choking and aspiration are one of four major causes of preventable death among individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our goal is to make sure individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are the safest they can be, by only preparing and providing them with foods and beverages with the textures and consistencies that have been deemed safe for them, in a tasty, palatable way.
In this one-of-a-kind workshop, you will learn how to identify the different consistencies of blended meals and thickened liquids, get hands-on experience in preparing and serving foods and liquids at various consistencies, and you will have the opportunity to taste-test your creations.
Please join us in helping individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities live safer, more dignified lives.
Limited to 12 participants per session.
This course is offered at five different times for your convenience.
