Meet Miss Teen Minnesota International 2013!!
Megan Muehlberg (Miss Teen Hennepin County) was crowned Miss Teen Minnesota International 2013 on March 16, 2013 in St. Cloud, Minnesota, where she competed with other "county/city” title holders from across the state. These women are recognized for their achievements as individuals.
"Auditory Processing Disorder Awareness” Megan has been passionate about speaking to kids, parents, doctors, teachers and speech therapists about auditory processing disorder (APD) awareness. APD is much like dyslexia, but is when the brain processes what you hear differently. 5-10% of children around the world have APD and Megan believes if these children are diagnosed early and get intervention, these children can be more successful in their life. Megan was diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder in the second grade. She started "re-training” her brain by using computer-based games to help her re-learn sounds and words.
Megan started working with Dr. Jay R. Lucker, founder and President of the National Coalition of Auditory Processing Disorder (www.ncapd.org) in 2009. As their working relationship grew, Megan started answering emails for the NCAPD and Dr. Lucker from parents, teachers, and physicians from all over the United States and the world.
The NCAPD organization is a non-profit organization whose primary focus is to inform and educate the public about auditory processing disorder as well as symptoms and developing a treatment plan for these children.
If you would like Megan to be part of your special event and speak at any club or meeting, please Click here to reserve her for your scheduled dates. We look forward to making your next meeting or event a successful and enjoyable one.
Megan Muehlberg is proud to be MISS TEEN MINNESOTA INTERNATIONAL 2013 and hopes to educate people throughout the state about "Auditory Processing Disorder Awareness” and to participate with the children as they take the adventure to "re-train” their brain.
