“Our preschooler had a lot to say, but nobody could understand him. Fast forward two years and our 5-year-old son still has a lot to say, but he can now say it all much more easily and clearly. We credit Deb entirely for this transformation. She quickly developed a rapport with our son through creative uses of toys, books, and games. As our son gained control over more of his sounds, his confidence grew and his focus improved. We are so lucky we found Deb when we did. Thank you!”

My son Patrick has been seeing Lisa since he was 5. He was born with a genetic disorder that impacts his speech. After a surgery that repaired his pharyngeal flap and not knowing what the outcome would be, Lisa was able to get Patrick from just a 2-word sentence to a full sentence.
