Choking has been identified as one of the leading causes of preventable death in people with learning disability. John, a service user with a learning disability, worked in partnership with Speech and Language therapy and other interested professionals to develop a DVD, activities, posters and advice leaflets.

He hopes, by sharing his story, to improve service user experience and help other people reduce their risk of choking. “before I worked with speech and language therapy I didn’t know choking was so serious. This is me telling my story and how I feel being through it (choking), even if I help one person it will be fantastic”.
