Playing on Purpose

The 3rd Wednesday of every month, Karen Betten is a guest host on the

The Truth is Funny…Shift Happens with Colette Stefan Radio Show

I am so honored to announce my guest Annemarie McQuaid, founder/owner of Playing on Purpose.

Join us as we explore the power of play-based approaches to learning and language development for young children. AnneMarie will share her expertise and knowledge in reframing the value of play from the useless waste of time that it is often associated with to a powerful transformative tool. We will explore her expertise in drawing upon a child’s individual interests and potential to support cognitive growth and expansion while engaging in fun, natural, and creative play.

AnneMarie McQuaid has a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology and a Master’s degree in Special Education. She has 25 years of experience working with children and young adults of all ages and abilities. AnneMarie is also an energy- healing practitioner utilizing modalities such as Reiki and Bodytalk. She has three children of her own; ages 18, 14, and 12. Email her at
