What Can Be Done To Help?

We’ve explained below the help that’s recommended in the Standards of Care for people who experience difficulties with eating and swallowing. Any support you need would be given to you following an assessment. You may be familiar with some or many of these things already, but if you’ve just started to experience difficulties - or if things change for you - talk to your parents and / or a member of your healthcare team as you may need another assessment.
