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. We saw improvement in the first few sessions. As parents, we were thrilled to have this win-win for our family!



Small Talk has been working with my daughter on speech therapy and we are thrilled with her progress and Lisa and Tina's dedication to achieving results while maintaining a comforting fun environment for her.
