Presentations

Beth has given talks locally and at national conferences in an effort to bring what she has learned about sleep to medical practitioners, educators, and parents. Her presentations have been consistently well-received and always generate good discussion.

"When Beth presented to our pediatric practice, the response was overwhelmingly positive. Everybody (physicians, nurses, secretaries) found it helpful. Her presentation was dynamic, informative, thorough and extremely professional. We were surprised that we were educated about issues that we thought we already knew about, issues we deal with everyday in our work. All of our providers have used the information she offered to guide us in our practice. We highly recommend her and support her in this work!"

-- Peter C. Kenny, M.D., Northampton Area Pediatrics

"National audiences of early childhood professionals receive Beth's presentations with enthusiasm and consistently remark on the high quality of her work.... Beth's presentations reflect a deep knowledge of children and current research. She offers participants a variety of perspectives informed by her experiences as a parent, classroom teacher, and researcher. Professionals feel supported, inspired, and able to integrate new knowledge into their practice after working with Beth!"

-- Martha Christenson Lees, Director, Center for Early Childhood Education, Smith College
