Alert: Prevent Choking

Many people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are at greater risk of choking. In fact, choking is one of the leading causes of medical emergencies and accidental deaths for the people we serve and often these incidents can be prevented with proper planning, communication, supervision and providing the right diet textures. It is important that we recognize our role in identification of swallowing issues, safe eating practices, choking prevention, and first aid.
