I wanted to say hello on this beautiful October afternoon! I have taken a bit of a hiatus from my blog due to being completely overcommitted this Fall. I know many of you can relate but I can almost see some light.
This is what I’m up too…lots of things
- I just got though a big presentation for our wonderful board of the UNC Children’s Hospital. We were asked to put together a talk about what we do in non-medical terms. I mastered iMovie for this one so you may see some new and improved videos at my classes!
- This Fall, I have the privilege of teaching the Pediatric Feeding and Dysphagia Class at UNC- Chapel Hill for the second year master students. Send an email if you’re interested to see what we are covering and I’ll post about it.
- Planning for ASHA! I hope to see some of you at ASHA in Orlando, November 20-23. I co-chaired the Feeding Across the Lifespan committee and believe we have great program for pediatric feeding and dysphagia folks! Melanie Potock and I are going to tackle “The Marriage of Sensory and Behavioral Strategies in Feeding Therapy”. Hope to see you there.
- I am traveling about once per month giving my CAN-EAT Class. It is wonderful to meet so many therapists from all over the country. I am teaching but I learn so much from therapists at my courses- thank you! I am trying to keep my blog page accurate with course dates but for the absolute latest info please go to Motivationsceu.com. Next stop- Houston, TX!
I have kept a steady stream of feeding news coming through the facebook side of things so I hope everyone is linked into that. It is very easy to post news, articles, and continuing ed info there so I will continue to do that with some overlap on the blog. I will use the blog for interviews and articles and longer pieces.
Have you seen Marsha’s new book on anxious eaters? I am in the planning stages of setting up an online bookclub with the amazing Marsha Dunn Klein to start in the new year. Details to come! You can order the book here: https://www.getpermissionapproach.com/the-book-1
My hope is to get back to posting fairly regularly in about a month.
Hope everyone is well and continuing to do amazing work with our feeders!
