FASD introI have been making a lot of materials lately in order to disseminate information on a variety of helpful topics including insurance coverage for speech language services, improving feeding abilities in picky eaters, the importance of oro-facial observations during speech- language assessments  and so on. I’ve also created an “introduction” series, which offers presentations on popular topics of interest, such as Auditory Processing Disorders (APD) and Social Pragmatic Language Disorders (click on the name to get to the link to the product).
