Patient Handouts

IDDSI has created these handouts in consultation with clinicians and patients. The handouts can be used by people who have feeding, chewing or swallowing problems, their caregivers and clinicians. There are separate handouts that have been designed for adults, and handouts that have been designed for use with babies and children. The handouts provide easy-to-read information about the IDDSI levels and their testing methods. The food levels also include examples of foods for each level, and food textures to avoid.
