It has been a fulfilling year travelling the US, meeting colleagues with a similar passion for “all things feeding and swallowing”. While I love teaching, I also love learning from the therapists I meet and making lasting friendships as well. We each have so much to share and I never stop learning .
It is a beautiful sunny day in Orlando, and I am going to the ASHA Convention for three days of learning and networking and catching up with old finds and past mentors. I am especially excited to be an invited speaker at the annual Bracco “Meet the Masters” presentation dedicated to the latest information on videofluoroscopic swallow studies. I’ll be speaking about “Big Considerations for Tiny Feeders – Navigating the VFSS in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).” And then on Saturday, I’ll be speaking on “The Role of Semi-Elevated Swaddled Sidelying in Neuroprotective Feeding” followed by “Providing Infant-Guided Co-Regulated Feeding Starts with Assessment of Feeding Skills” with my colleague, Dr. Suzanne Thoyre.
In the meantime, I am busy finalizing my 2020 schedule. I’ll see you coast to coast, and offering:
