I am a mom, wife, speech language pathologist and children’s book author who has a passion for language and literacy. I wanted to create a website that incorporated my love for mealtime, language and literacy. I also wanted to include a special needs section given my background in working with children and adults with special needs. My work has been specifically with those children and adults who have complex communication needs. I currently work at the Westchester Institute for Human Development as part of their assistive technology team.
I think mealtime is the ideal time to teach our children about all important topics including social skills, caring for our earth, healthy eating, allergies and much more! I have been baking since I can remember and have learned how to cook and bake mostly from reading cookbooks, watching cooking shows, friends and my family. I also have a passion for books, specifically children’s book. I think books are treasures and should be treated as such.
I have two children who inspire every day to be the best mom I can be.
Mealtime has always been an important time for us to get together and enjoy food. I often would incorporate language into our mealtime and thought a website discussing this would be ideal. I also love to experiment with different foods and make modifications to fit my children’s tastes and needs.
