Our Team Goal
Our goal is to provide the best service possible to our clients and families. They are the experts about their child, family member, or self.
Our son was diagnosed with Verbal Apraxia at the age of 3, for the last 6 years we have been accessing speech therapy through Speech and Language Works. We have worked with the staff in both a school setting and private sessions. They have not only helped develop our son's speech but they have been an invaluable source of information regarding funding, resources and new therapies, such as hippotherapy. The joy they experience when my child makes gains matches ours as parents. They take their time to understand how to reach each child and they tailor their program to engage them in the most effective way. Speech and Language Works is an amazing company with incredibly talented staff, I would recommend them to any parent who's child is in need of speech services.
The sessions were great and the SLPA was wonderful. The kids really enjoyed having Sandy come to our house each week!
When my son was first diagnosed with FragileX/ Autism I was devastated. I felt alone and very lost. I received a phone number from a family member of an SLP, who had 20 plus years of experience working with special needs children. With a shaky voice and glimmer of hope, I made the call. My son's life has been forever changed and is full of hope now because of our miracle worker, Sandy.
Speech Language Works has been working with our family and son who has Autism for about 9+ years. Sandy and her team are a professional, dedicated group there to provide families with support, strategies, and resources for success. They truly care about providing the best services possible, while working with each child's individual needs and maintaining family priorities. Through their dedication and commitment, Speech Language Works has shared our son's milestones and many, many successes and we are incredibly grateful.
