  • Things I Want Every Patient & Family to Know

    One of the joys of writing this blog over the past year has been the ability to share my perspective on family and patient interaction.

  • When Therapy Goals Do Not Sync

    Each person that we provide therapy for has his or her challenges. Sometimes the challenge is that his or her goals do not sync with the goals we think are appropriate. Sometimes the family dynamic has too many external stressors which either reduces attendance or participation of stakeholders in therapy more than likely reducing the efficacy ...

  • The Latest and Greatest Assessments for Children Ages 3-5

  • Recipe: Presentation is Everything!

    This week I am taking a recipe hiatus and would like to share some picky eater tips that I am currently using at my house! For picky eaters, looking at a full plate of ''tuna surprise'' with a side of rice pudding and a cup of strawberry smoothie can be awfully overwhelming.

  • Recipe: A Side of Fries, Please!

Even moms of picky eaters will confess that their little one(s) will eat french fries and they allow it (and may even encourage it) because, ''At least they are eating!''
