Tara J. Glennon, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTAProfessor of Occupational Therapy Quinnipiac University
Dr. Glennon has had a long-standing devotion to pediatric practice, evident in her clinical work and scholarly endeavors. As a clinician, Tara has specialized in the pediatric domain of practice since 1985 and was among the original group of four therapists in Connecticut to receive Board certification as a pediatric specialist from AOTA. She owns the Center for Pediatric Therapy, a pediatric private practice here in Connecticut, and has recently begun a web resource for pediatric clinicians called OT for Kids. Dr. Glennon has authored numerous works on pediatric practice and has lectured extensively on both the local and national levels. Her AOTA Roster of Fellows award for her commitment to Professional and Community Education in Pediatrics clearly exemplifies her national work in this area. From the student perspective, they simply know her as the professor who is often on the floor demonstrating childhood movement patterns or jumping into the ball-pit in order to illustrate how to children play!

Linda N. Stuhlman, Early Childhood Consultant
Linda will share information for parents who plan to send their children to early education and care or to kindergarten.

Development milestones, in the areas of social, emotional, physical, and cognitive domains, will be explained.
