Our Success Stories

Jen

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!
