Carmen Huston's bio

This content was provided by Carmen Huston "Carmen has over 20 years of experience providing therapy services across a variety of settings, from the hospital acute setting to intensive rehab services to clinic and home based settings. Over the years, she has specialized in pediatric services, specifically treating children with feeding disorders and early intervention. Carmen landed in Austin, TX the summer of 2009 and began working at Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas as their senior therapist to develop their feeding and speech therapy services in both the inpatient hospital and clinical settings. She further developed their feeding therapy programs from the Neonatal ICU to initiating and/or progressing outpatient clinic services, working closely with physicians and other providers to provide collaborative services for patients. Carmen served as direct manager report and mentor to the feeding therapy team and continues to provide patient coverage and mentoring on a regular basis. Prior to moving to Austin, Carmen lived and worked in San Francisco, CA, working for California Pacific Medical Center and University of California San Francisco Medical Center. During this time, Carmen worked in acute care, intensive rehab, clinic and home based settings. She was able to contribute to the development of the California Pacific Medical Center Kalmanovitz Child Development Center Feeding Clinic. As the lead therapist, she coordinated the care for an over 75 patient caseload that was treated with a collaborative care model that included Gastroenterology, Nutrition, Psychology and Feeding Therapy services. She was fortunate to be able to benefit from direct consultation from Dr. Kay Toomey PhD., founder of the S.O.S (Sensory-Oral-Sequential) approach to feeding, who was hired to provide consultation and education to the clinic. Carmen graduated from University of FL with a master's degree in communication disorders. Even as a graduate student, she became interested in swallowing disorders and was able to combine her love of working with children with her specialty skills in this area. Carmen's career has allowed her to have a very diversified experience, allowing her to work with both medically complex and developmental feeding disorders, as well as providing bilingual services. She is a native Spanish language speaker from Puerto Rico and has lived in a variety of cities that have allowed her to use her Spanish on daily basis in the work setting. Carmen is now taking on this new venture with Takes2Therapy, targeting parent education/coaching as the basis for individualized therapeutic services with close collaboration with other providers as needed. Her vision is to provide specialty services from highly specialized experienced therapists to optimize outcomes and provide the best quality of care available."
