Sally Hoffman has been fostering felines since December 2010. She has cared for over 30 felines. During this segment we will hear stories about her adventures as a foster parent.
Today’s episode regards a great approach to fostering intellectual, physical, and emotional development in children called “Floortime”
The Floortime approach, created by Dr. Stanely Greenspan, helps caregivers energize a child’s interest and creativity, build their symbolic and logical thinking, and helps them develop good social and emotional connections with others.
Our guest today is Melanie Feller a speech-language pathologist and child development specialist. Ms. Feller is a DIR Floortime Practitioner certified by the Interdisciplinary Council on Development and Learning (IDCL) and the Director of Continuing Education for the IDCL.

Dr. T and the Kids AtoZ Team
Are you teaching your children to truly take care of themselves and fill their own needs? Or have you made choices that leave your child dependent on you? Naturally we all want to keep our children safe, and of course we like to see them happy, but if we truly want to support our children expanding and growing then we need to foster their confidence in the Universe and their knowing of all they are capable of creating.
Join us for part 3 of a four part series created from a small group gather in October, 2014 with Delrae J Bantz, Life Strategist, Open Channel and visionary owner of the Life Learning Center of Self.
“Each and every day we have the chance to make a difference in the life of another person. I believe it; my husband believes it; my children believe it.” Jodi Orton shares her journey into wealth and personal gain, through a difficult period of conflict, to find at the end of it the things that really matter. Through Jodi's story we can all reflect on how finding one’s own purpose in life can lead to a deeper sense of happiness. Jodi will also share how animal therapy can make a difference in the lives of others, and the innovative way in which the fiber from those animals is used to help disadvantaged women.
