I have been teaching about pediatric and adult feeding, motor speech, and mouth function since 1989 in graduate and continuing education programs. During that time, we have seen a lot of change in the information available in these areas. It has been quite a journey. My overarching mission and vision is to bring parents/families and professionals together in community to share information and resources on the topics of feeding, motor speech, and mouth function.


Our website http://www.agesandstages.net/ provides a lot of FREE INFORMATION on these topics in the form of blogs, Q & A’s, book guides, resource lists, etc. Many of the blogs, Q & A’s, and resources were submitted by our wonderful group of subscribers and networkers. Our goal is to create an international network of professionals and parents/family members who are interested in these topics. We would be honored if you would join us. Here are the links: http://www.agesandstages.net/subscribe.php and http://www.agesandstages.net/network.php


In addition to our website, I am also teaching and sharing information in other venues to bring awareness to these topics.
