In this episode, Michelle is joined by Donna Edwards, an Associate Professor, author, inventor, national/international speaker and Board Certified Specialist in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders at Baldwin Wallace University. Now we have all felt isolated in the world of Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Disorders, especially when it comes to evidenced based strategies for evaluations and interventions…overlooked by the massive amount of data for our adult peers and the apparent scant for pediatrics…but that changes today! Donna is here to provide her inside first hand experience, knowledge, and expertise about the amazing endeavors that are being undertaken by various organizations, (BCS-S, The Dysphagia Research Society, and ASHA SIG 13), to not only fill the void, but to propel us forward!! Three cheers and “Hooah” are in order for this uplifting hour!
