Client Testimonial

Our Teletherapy Services Have Been Very Successful

"My four-year-old son Elijah was diagnosed with Autism at two years old. He has been attending Speech Source Therapy for over a year and a half now. Irene was amazing with assisting us in starting his services right away. Since the beginning we were very happy with the support and therapy he received! Once the covid-19 pandemic hit my husband and I were worried about how we would continue to get him the help he needed. After discussing it with my husband, we decided to give teletherapy a shot. Speech Source transitioned us into teletherapy via Zoom and we could not have been happier with the decision! Throughout the past five months Elijah's language development has been flourishing! We're constantly hearing him produce more sounds, say more words, and he's even been able to tell me " I love you" a few times. As a parent of a child who was considered nonverbal when diagnosed, those were the most beautiful words I've heard in my life. Elijah enjoys interacting with his therapist, doing the interactive learning videos, and the fun activities his therapist plans for session. I highly recommend giving teletherapy a chance as I have seen great progress with my son. It's very important to give our children a routine, support, and stability during these times to aid in their learning. We are forever grateful to our therapist Jessica and Speech Source Therapy for all of their dedication and support in helping Elijah. My husband and I are very excited for the future and to see our son progress."

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to these kiddos!

"I took my 2-year-old son to Speech Source for his issue with articulation, and Kimberly was our therapist. We had a wonderful experience with her. She developed a quick bond with our son and helped him come a long way with his articulation. She also was very helpful in explaining the process to me, so I could practice with him at home. My son adored Kimberly, and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking speech therapy for themselves or their child.

Speech Source is also a very well-equipped facility with lots of great toys, books and activities (even a small gym room) that engage children and help them get excited about the process."

Speech Source Therapy knows how to assess a child and give them exactly who and what they need

"We started going to Speech Source Therapy 2 years ago when my daughter turned 3 years old. We were referred. First, we met Heidi, the owner who was so sweet and caring. Heidi evaluated my daughter and chose the perfect therapist for us, Kimberly. Kimberly has been such an asset to my daughters over all communication; in every sense. Kimberly learned my daughter and tailored her sessions specifically for her. My daughter speaks clearly and with confidence. She continues to grow and learn from Kimberly with new innovative and surprising techniques every week. Kimberly is such an asset in our child’s overall development, we have every intention to continue. My daughter has fun and loves to play and learn with Kimberly."

Speech source therapy knows how to assess a child and give them exactly who and what they need. I am so grateful for all they provide for children at all levels. They truly care.

- Forever grateful:) - Michelle
