Peggy Jones Farlow created Touch to T.E.A.C.H. in 1993 when she was a speech and language pathologist in the public schools. Initially the program focused on children with special needs, has been expanded for all who want to increase communication and health with loved ones who have dementia, terminal or chronic illnesses. Touch to T.E.A.C.H. involves a ten-minute modified massage routine that combines acupressure and Swedish strokes, adapted for the classroom environment.
