I asked to share some of their responses just in case you are debating private therapy and want to know a little more about what families come away with after their time in private speech and language therapy.
"I was always so happy with your visits. I felt you always gave me and my boys great instruction on what to work on and how to implement it! We never had any unmet needs. You're truly the BEST!!!"
"Our biggest need when we considered private speech therapy was to get the best care possible. Services (through the school district) didn't seem like a good option as the therapists are overwhelmed with too many children and I didn't feel as though we would get personalized car. We wanted more of a personal, one on one experience. Private therapy met those needs."
"You helped a ton with teaching the proper techniques to get the sounds to come out the right way. Because of that my son still remembers to get the end sounds when he uses the strategies you taught him. Both of my boys benefited greatly from working with you."
"I would say my biggest need was having him do it one on one. Getting an individualized plan for him. Me being able to be part of the "treatment/plan" so we were both being consistent and teaching him the same words, hand signs, etc. I felt more informed and better able to help him."
"I really liked the on on one. My son needed that extra attention and really excelled from it. When in his school lessons (for the few weeks he took) he was overshadowed by other students, some needed more attention than others. I also liked how once he could move on to the next lesson he did. In school sessions he had to wait for the whole group. All of the fun activities you added always kept him interested as well (verses just worksheets in class)."
"Private therapy helped meet major communication barriers, helped give her the tools and confidence to correct and make sounds that she wasn't able to make, also you made speech fun and she responded really well to that."
