I am a Speech-Language Pathologist with more than 30 years experience.

I have learned so much from my favorite teachers - children and their caregivers. I am indebted to them and thankful that so many have shared their journey with me.

comment How to child-proof my home for a toddler?
This question is very similar to "What home-safety aspects should new parents consider?" which is a SE community wiki. You will find great suggestions under that question. Since this question is so similar it may need to be closed as a duplication.
