Sally Asquith has been selected as the first speech-language pathologist for a de novo international organization devoted to feeding (dysphagia) concerns in children, the Pediatric Feeding Consortium. In addition to Asquith, the Pediatric
Feeding Consortium’s Executive Council includes five physicians, a registered dietician, an occupational therapist, a psychologist, and a registered nurse from major hospitals across the US such as Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Children's Hospital of Orange County [CA]. The PFC will standardize the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric feeding disorders, raise awareness, and identify key research. Asquith has owned Carolina Speech & Language Center, Inc., a large private practice in Summerville, since 2001 with specialization in infants and children of all ages who are “picky eaters”, highly selective, neophobic (afraid of new foods), or failure-to-thrive. This specialization draws families from around the state who seek answers and support for their children. Asquith is only one of two pediatric speech-language pathologists in SC who has been accepted for national Board Certification from the American Board of Swallowing and Swallowing
