  • Your Child’s Biggest Fan

    Somewhere along the line you have heard the word ''autism.'' Tomorrow is the day someone will either confirm your deepest fears or at the very least tell you this might be going on with your child.

  • White/Gold vs. Blue/Black Dress

    Millions of people on social media and later mainstream media recently viewed a photo of a particular dress that stirred a national debate.

  • The Oral-Motor Debate

    I must admit, I love a good controversy every once in awhile! Recently I have been both fascinated and flabbergasted by some of the comments posted on the blog related to oral-motor therapy and its effectiveness. I myself am a huge supporter of oral-motor therapy and use it almost everyday with the majority of the children I treat in EI. I was ...
