WELCOME to Bridging the Gap of EA/TEF. Collectively, we are a group of parents with a child who was born with EA/TEF. This resource is being assembled with insight and assistance from other families effected by EA/TEF. We have come across many stumbling blocks in the lack of resources available to us to explain what EA/TEF is when we are told of such a diagnosis, as well as the potential long term effects that our children will have from being born with EA/TEF. OUR GOAL: To Bridge the Gap of EA/TEF and assist in providing a single source resource guide and face-to-face support system for families to refer to when told their child has EA/TEF.
Note that ALL services and resources are offered on a volunteer basis.

With invaluable insight from these sources, our hope is to:
Develop and implement the following core areas of BTG:
