This years Seminar for Feeding Teams was held at the Salem Convention Center, Salem OR. The seminar was extremely well received and featured keynote speaker Suzanne Evans Morris, Ph.D. presenting “YES” – Moving from Gastrointestinal Discomfort to Inner-Directed Eating (PDF).

As therapists, we have the ability and responsibility to advocate for increased independence for many children. Once in a while a new product comes along that can make the difference between dependence and independence. This inspirational video could make that difference. Working with the medical community, we can help make dreams come true.
