Scope can provide your organisation with customised Mealtime Management Training, to ensure compliance with the latest NDIS practice standards and policy. 

Develop skilled and competent staff with Scope’s Mealtime Management Training

Delivered by an experienced speech pathologist, this engaging yet comprehensive course includes a mix of theory and practical elements. Our training is specifically designed to train disability support workers to provide the upmost care and support to customers with dysphagia.  

Gain experience with hands on practice 

Throughout the course, participants will be given several opportunities to practice modifying and testing food and drinks to each level typically prescribed. 

Participants will then apply this newfound knowledge by modifying a dessert and drink to meet the requirements outlined in an example mealtime management plan.   

By learning how to achieve the right food consistencies, your staff will be able to provide better choices to customers who require their food to be modified.
