General Information

The District School Board of Pasco County (DSBPC) is dedicated to ensuring a safe eating environment for all students. Due to developmental delays or neurological disorders, some students may have difficulty consuming food or drinks.

The DSBPC has a Feeding and Swallowing Team (Dysphagia Team) to assist schools when concerns are noted in a student's ability to consume food or drink. The information below will assist staff members in recognizing the signs of aspiration (choking), understand safe eating strategies for students, and how to access additional support from the Feeding and Swallowing Team (Dysphagia Team).
