Our Success Stories


Both of our girls struggled with various aspects of their speech. We worried that they would be self-conscious as they grew older. Miss Tina not only helped with the speech issues, but she provided a fun and loving environment. Our kids enjoyed going to speech and thought of the time with Miss Tina as a play date.
