Questions & Answers


Effective Answers to Your Burning Questions
 
 
The internet and social networking have helped both parents and professionals realize they are not alone when their children or clients encounter problems. However, now you need to sort through an information avalanche where some information is accurate and other information is not.

Our goal is to help you find accurate, effective, and easy-to-apply answers to your questions about feeding, speech, mouth function, and related areas. We encourage you to submit both commonly asked and unique questions.

While we won't be able to answer every question personally, we will look for themes to help as many parents and professionals as possible. The sample question (on the right) gives you an idea of a type of question you may wish to ask. See QUESTIONS & ANSWERS A-Z and FEATURED Q & A for questions that have already been answered.
