ABOUT ME

My name is Maria Estela Edward M.S.L, Speech and Language Pathology and Audiology Specialization, I am the owner and founder of MEE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT CORP.

 

I have dedicated half my life to Child Education in different spheres uninterrupted, constantly studying, researching and keeping up with all the advances that my career has made internationally; this has allowed me to confirm that the knowledge you have is never enough..... ''You do better when you know.''

Since 1990 I have embarked on a long and beautiful professional path having the honor and privilege of working and sharing professional experiences with the most recognized specialists in my career.  

 

I have worked closely with hundreds of children with Special Needs (different diagnoses) and their families. Helping achieving incredible results by incorporating them to active lifestyles and bringing out a smile on each of their families because of the progress of their children. As a university professor, I have collaborated in the training of early childhood teachers in schools, homes, principals, administrators, specialists in both Special Children's Education and General Children's Education.

 

I was founder, owner and director of two Inclusive Child Care Centers for more than 12 years located in a community where more than 98% of the population was a minority; making a strong impact on children and their families, who have achieve extraordinary results of which I am proud today. Throughout my journey I have been able to see the urgent need for Inclusive Child Education teachers to know deeply about Special Education to really carry out an Inclusive program with appropriate practices.
