Early language delays can hamper learning

This article is about diagnosing and treating language delays before children enter school in order to prevent learning difficulties later. My daughter, as well as the children of several of my friends, are fortunate to have received speech therapy as preschoolers.

Hike and seek with geocaching

My first published article is about taking kids geocaching -- a growing sport where handheld GPS systems are used to locate hidden "treasure". Although we don't go often enough, my family really enjoys hiking, and geocaching adds a nice twist to help keep the little ones motivated. The Pacific Northwest is a particularly great place for geocaching, but you can try it just about anywhere in the world.
