An FYI for families and therapists who are facing struggles with feeding....
Dr. Markus Wilken, the gifted feeding specialist who came from Germany to help Heath become an eater, is now in private practice and collaborating closely with my great friend Jennifer Berry of Spectrum Pediatrics in Virginia. Markus will be employed through Spectrum to educate families and feeding therapists in the U.S. about intensive tube weaning and tube management.
Jennifer was Heath's first occupational/feeding therapist, before our move to Seattle, and her intuition, intelligence and compassion were immense gifts to our family when Heath was not yet ready for weaning. She and Markus will be a dream team!
If you are interested in obtaining an evaluation from Markus, you can contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a health care professional interested in setting up a continuing education workshop on intensive weaning and tube management, contact Jennifer at: email@example.com
Good luck to all!
