Welcome toÂ BLaST Intermediate Unit 17’s Safe Feeding Team
The purpose of the BLaST Intermediate Unit 17’s Safe Feeding Team is to provide specialized support to the student’s school based team members. The primary goal of the Safe Feeding Team is to ensure safe nutrition and hydration to students during school hours, while simultaneously protecting the professionals who work with these students by identifying students at risk and providing specific recommendations to assist with swallowing/feeding concerns. This team assessment would offer analysis of the student’s feeding history and observation of the child’s present performance in the area of feeding/swallowing. The Safe Feeding Team would be available to offer support and consultation to the student’s school based team (if/as needed).
