Presenters: Michelle Dawson, MS, CCC-SLP, CLC and Megan Richmond, DHA, MS CCC-SLP, CLC
In this episode Michelle is joined by Megan Richmond, DHA, M.S., CCC-SLP, CLC, a pediatric speech-language pathologist with over eighteen years of clinical and research experience, who is also trained in yoga for the special child through Kripalu. Dr. Megan’s unique background of research on best practices for Interprofessional Practice when treating Pediatric Feeding and Swallowing Disorders is a special treat for this episode. She too was frustrated by traditional “silo” approaches to therapy, so she dove into the field with a desire to learn “How do we fix this?” and long story short it became her life’s work for 4 years of intense study. The end result, one amazing journey towards a Doctorate in Health Administration, and a new zeal to share that information with colleagues around the globe!  Be inspired with laughter and light when these two nerdy SLP gals take on Interprofessional Practice!
