Speech Feeding and More is a practice that looks at infants, children and adults with a “whole body “ perspective.
Helping facilitate the balance between your physiologoic movements and your ability to safely and efficiently breathe, eat, drink, speak and sleep. Professional interdisciplinary relationships for treatment help provide patients with the best care and outcomes possible. It is my responsibility to meet patients and family where they are and share knowledge of how things work and why they may not work. It is important to have you parents understand the therapy, why and how it works and that there are physiologic reasons and research that support the treatments. I find this knowledge helps increase compliance of therapy, increase awareness, and increase success.

“Speech starts in your feet! Communication is a whole body interaction. The better you coordinate the whole body the better you achieve communication success!”
“I believe in a “whole child” perspective of speech-language therapy. The brain, nerves, muscles and connective tissue work together for nursing, chewing, swallowing, speaking, breathing, understanding, communication, attention and so much more.”
