    Hello Donna, I am Lachelle from Australia, my 2.7 year old son may have cricopharyngeal Achalasia he continues to have tests, procedures etc, to finalise if it is, i noticed from breastfeeding and after a traumatic birth his swallowing wasn’t right, i came across your colouring pages by exploring the net, i wanted to thank you because what i read is the most helpful factual info i have read, i am finding it so hard to find a dr or speech pathologist who can help with guidance, support, what to do next, whats happening, why does he do this etc etc, i just wanted to thank you for a resource that i can show my son and talk to him.

    I wish there was an adult booklet to use with swallowing problems as good as this is for children. Please develop one for us.

      Sure I could do that. Any particular diagnosis, work setting or age group?
