“As a parent, you never want to think your child is delayed in anything, so calling Jennifer was tough initially but I am so glad we did! Speech therapy isn’t only for the child, it is for the parents as well (after all we are with them 24/7) to learn how to teach them to progress at home. Just from the little tips my husband and I learned, our son started excelling in talking in just months!
She is amazing at what she does and is amazing with kids. She is so kind, gentle and patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone!”Rebecca V.
As a speech-language pathologist, it’s been amazing to watch the transformative progress kids of all abilities can make in their communication skills. I can equip you and your child with the tools needed to increase their speech and language skills so they can reach their full potential socially and academically.
After discussing your child’s needs and family goals, I will conduct a thorough evaluation which will guide our treatment plan.
As a mother of two, I know the heartache and concern you may have if your child is not meeting expected milestones.
If you want your child to speak more clearly, use more words, or engage more appropriately with others then give me a call to set up a free 10-minute consultation to get started.
