Feedback our therapists have received from families of students receiving speech therapy services:
My son loves going to see Jamie for speech. He gets so excited to see her and goes to her class easily. Jamie is super patient and attentive to my son. She always answers any questions we have about my son’s needs as well as gives us suggestions on what to work on at home. When our son first started his speech was very limited and now he’s able to talk in full sentences and hold a small conversation. The progress he has made is amazing! I would highly recommend Jamie to any future child. Thank you Jamie for all you have done for our son!
Thank you so much for helping our son learn to communicate and especially for being his favorite person. I'm glad he found you to be a friendly face and a comfort.
I want you to know that we were so happy with how the meeting went. Everyone on our son's team knows him SO well. Their knowledge in their respective fields and their application of it is impressive. We also appreciated how you took the time to better understand their observations, listening to both us and the teachers to help us formulate this plan. It’s was long but really productive and we wanted to say thank you!
... just wanted to let you know that Ms. Lisa is phenomenal. She is innovative and thinks outside the box. Most importantly she cares about her patients and it shows!!!!!!
Where do I begin? Thank you so much for all of the wonderful things you did for Evan. You made sure that he received what he needed. Evan learned so much from you. The patience and consistency you had with him was amazing. I hope you know how much you are appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
I just wanted to say thank you for all the time and energy you are devoting to Molly. You show up every day for her with a smile and excitement. Her world is opening up and I have you to thank for that.

Thank you so much for the review evaluation. I appreciate the help so much. Everyone treated Hunter with such kindness and respect. Thanks again!
Hey there... Just wanted to say hi. (Our daughter) was asking about you today and if you were going to be her teacher ever again lol. She is doing so well in school and her teachers said she is definitely ready for kindergarten. I'm so proud of her and how far she's come and we can't thank you enough for all you did for her. Having conversation with her is even more interesting and comical now with the things she comes up with. She just has a charm about her and I love it! I can't believe she's going to kindergarten already is just crept up and it makes me sad and happy all at once. She wouldn't be where she is now if it wasn't for you working with her and genuinely caring for her so again thank you! I hope all is well for you and just wanted you to know she hasn't forgotten you 😊
You have a very tough job and I admire you for choosing to work with kids that struggle. It takes a special kind of person to take on a job like this and you have a unique ability to form a trust and make these kids feel comfortable with you.
In such a short time with your help she made leaps and bounds and was transformed into a whole new little girl. I have no doubt that without you we wouldn't be where we are today. Anyone can be a teacher but you really put more into it and I could see how much you genuinely cared for her and she trusted you. I'm just glad we ended up with you as her guide. You made a difference and I want to be sure you know it. I can't express our appreciation enough and we do honestly miss you!
On another note, I was very impressed with what's going on related to communication at Marple. We have some new kindergarten students with pretty significant communication needs. Would it be possible for our kindergarten special education teacher to shadow one of your speech therapists for a day? I think it would be great for her to see how communication is managed at Marple. It would be great for her to see how the therapy sessions run and how those skills are reinforced in the classroom. I would also love for her to participate in your Professional Learning Communities. I think it's great your speech therapists are working so closely with the teachers to ensure carry over, it's the key.
I wanted to say we have noticed a lot more words and songs also. She likes to sing and we can understand what she is saying. SO HAPPY WITH HER IMPROVEMENT!
You are all very knowledgeable and did an awesome job...
Thank you for the report. I read through all the details, and they were helpful...Please thank the entire team on my behalf for a thorough and thoughtful evaluation.
You are the best (if it were up to me you would be paid 3 times your salary because you are definitely worth it! Your ears (and others too) should ring every day because at least one time per day I tell someone about the incredible work you are doing with our son. Thanks again for allllll of your incredible work.
Our daughter is so lucky to have you as her therapist! Thank you for all that you do for her!
We just wanted to reach out to thank everyone for the lovely meeting today. We left the meeting relieved. We felt supported with our concerns and questions addressed.
