We are proud to announce that our very own Clinical Director and occupational therapist, Beth Williamson, has officially embarked on her journey to India to assist the SPOON Foundation. If you recall, one of our speech language pathologists and co-founders of SPOON Foundation, Michelle Rudzinski, shared a blog (http://fiestapediatrictherapy.blogspot.com/2014/03/fiesta-shares-feeding-knowledge-overseas.html) about the purpose of SPOON in collaboration with Fiesta overseas.
So far, Beth has been hard at work presenting lectures to caregivers in orphanages on nutrition, feeding, and positioning. The focus of her time in India is to provide training, equipment, care, and advocacy for children in the orphanages who have special needs.
She has just completed a week in Pune, India and will be moving on to an orphanage in Bangalore, India today. Stay tuned for more pictures and stories about Beth's time in India.
