New Visions provides continuing education and therapy services to professionals and parents working with infants and children with feeding, swallowing, oral-motor, and pre-speech problems.
New Visions was established in 1985 by Suzanne Evans Morris, Ph.D. Its programs are located in the Blue Ridge foothills of Nelson County, Virginia.
Its Vision is to assist others:
to incorporate into all interactions the expanded possibilities for learning, healing, developing new abilities, and communicating that are inherent in each individual.
to develop a clearer understanding of movement, feeding, pre-speech, and communication skill development.
to identify sensorimotor, gastrointestinal and learning problems that interfere with a child’s ability to move, eat, and communicate.
to view the challenges of pediatric dysphagia and dysarthria within a holistic perspective that builds on the child’s abilities and individual learning styles.
to implement a gentle, respectful problem-solving approach to therapy for these difficulties.
The Vision is implemented in closely interrelated areas that are featured in these sections of our web site.
