Hema Trukenbrod, a clinician with over twenty years of experience in pediatric sensory integration and a mom of two young girls has always been motivated to find ways to empower children. Throughout her years as a clinician and now as a mother, she realized that she had spent much of her time guiding her friends and community through the confusing myriad of perspectives on the behavioral, learning and developmental health landscape. She witnessed clients being frustrated by the roadmaps available to them on the internet that had them 'googling' endlessly for hours and yet not confident enough to sculpt the necessary next steps for their children.
Hema embarked on a mission to research this concern in the hopes of titrating the problem and creating a solution. She discovered several problems: (1) Parents were having difficulty navigating through the immense amount of information that existed on the internet to get them to the 'next steps' needed for their children (2) Parents were waiting too long to get the help they needed for their child (3) Too much time, resources and emotional energy was wasted on seeing the wrong type of specialist or finally getting to the 'right' type of specialist.
Intent to provide families with a solution, Hema created PediaSource with the help of trusting friends and advisers. A website that is a first-of-its-kind technology platform providing one-stop access by phone to experts in all fields that fall under the umbrella of child and teen behavior, learning and development. Parents now have direct access on the phone to specialists for unbiased answers without the anguish of the wait, the un-necessary appointments and the late night googling.
