  • Testimonials

    "When we started with Linda my child could speak about 20 words. Within 2 months my child could attempt over 200 words and less than 6 months after working with Linda he is speaking in full sentences. Everyone that knows him is amazed. Linda's patience with both parents and children is endless, her technical knowledge is sharp and she is a pleasure to work with!"

    "We have been with Linda for approximately a yer now. I love that Linda keeps activities fresh and interesting. Her energy is on point and our daughter took an instant liking to her. Sh is patient and full of great recommendations and advice."

    "We started services with Linda when my daughter was 3 years old. She was officially diagnosed with apraxia. Prior to that point she had been receiving speech services with regional for one year, but we had not seen much progress. Within six months of working with Linda, we saw significant progress. As a parent to witness that after all the struggle and worry is the best feeling! I really appreciate Linda taking the time after every session to really educate me regarding my daughter’s dx, review with me what she has worked on in session with her, and provide helpful suggestions of what to practice at home with her. Linda truly cares about the work she does and I feel like she is really invested in helping my daughter. We appreciate her!!!!!"
