As a speech/language pathologist for over 35 years, I have worked with children and adults in school, clinical, and private settings.
All children should be given the opportunity to learn in a fun, loving and nurturing environment. A home and school connection is essential in order for a child to reach his or her highest potential.
I am the author of three bestselling parenting books: How to Talk to Your Baby (Avery/Putnam, 1999); Teach Me How to Say it Right (New Harbinger Publication, 2005); Talking on the Go (American-Speech-Language Hearing Association, ASHA - 2009). Also, I co-authored a teaching resource: RTI in Action: Oral Language Activities for K-2 Classrooms (ASHA, 2010). I was awarded the ASHA 2005 Clinician of the Year Award.
I received a BA from West Chester University and an MA from The College of New Jersey. I continue to attend workshops and on-line seminars to remain current in speech/language and educational issues.
I enjoy reading and exercising. Running and spinning classes are my favorites.
