"Mairead Finn is a miracle worker.  She is an excellent resource for all feeding issues, and developing a comprehensive therapy program.  My child was diagnosed with low tone and this was affecting his ability to digest food.  The doctors were recommending for him to have a feeding tube.  Luckily, we found Mairead at the right time.  She calmly introduced a program that was manageable for all of his caregivers.  My child is thriving.  He is able to eat all foods, and is gaining weight.  We could not be more pleased with his progress.  Mairead is a true find."
