Episode 4 – Ali Lutch

Ali Lutch

Ali Lutch

Ali Lutch, mother of five boys (including triplets) tells us about her crazy, busy, wonderful life- everything from starting her family and birthing multiples overseas after serving in the Peace Corp to becoming a fire-eating mom managing a family circus schedule. Ali describes her early experiences with physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology services for her children and the organizational, recreational, and home strategies that helped all of her kids- even the ones who didn’t need therapy services- find success.  Ali’s humor and lighthearted nature helps us appreciate and celebrate our children’s victories both large and small.

Episode 3- Miriam Klein (Heartland Music Together)

Miriam Klein

Miriam Klein has a gift to share.  Growing up she inherited an early love for music from her mother, but as a shy child, after the age of 7 she abandoned her singing voice for the next 30 years.  Deciding deliberately to conquer her fear of singing out loud and sharing her voice with others, she now acts as a teacher for the international organization Music Together and director of Heartland Music Together. Miriam artfully articulates essential information on how music connects us all and helps us develop the “whole brain” from infancy to adulthood.   Whether you are a caregiver who wants to share music with your child in an intentional way, you want more information on how music impacts overall child development, or you want more support in promoting music development for your child, you will benefit from sharing in Miriam’s song.
