Co-creating Safe and Enjoyable Meals for People with Disability​

Working with a large inter-disciplinary group of partners, Studio 3 Learning was engaged by the University of Technology Sydney to facilitate the learning design and development of a training package to improve the provision of support during mealtimes for people with a swallowing disability. The project was funded by the National Disability Insurance Scheme and the Victorian Department of Families, Fairness and Housing, and involved a consortium of contributors including people with disability, self-advocacy organisations, disability service providers, assistive technologists, speech pathologists, dietitians, occupational therapists, and academics involved in disability research and teaching.
