Testimonials

Clients Speak Their Mind

 

We reached out to Amy for help with our 2-year-old son Alfie who at the time who was showing no signs of speech development. He was getting very frustrated, screaming a lot at ear piercing levels as he wasn’t able to communicate. We chose to work with Amy as she came highly recommended and after an initial consultation, we felt that she was a great fit for Alfie. We felt that she would work with him on his terms. In fact, she came into our house and started working with Alfie and our family as a whole showing us all how we could help him develop his speech. In a matter of months, we saw vast progress. She was able to tap into Alfie, gain his trust, and help him learn at his pace with minimal frustration. After 10 months, Alfie had caught up with other 3-year-old's speech development, which was amazing. Without her we wouldn’t have had the tools to help him, and we feel enormous gratitude towards her as she helped open him up to the world. We would recommend Amy to anyone looking for help with their child’s speech development. Her approach in helping us as a family teach and encourage Alfie is what was needed to get through to him.

Resources

& Helpful Links

The National Association of Young People Who Stutter

This is an incredible organization that provides resources and schedules meet-ups and conferences for children who stutter and their families. Attending these conferences and meetings is a wonderful way for your child to meet other children who stutter. If your child continues to stutter, I HIGHLY recommend going to one of the conferences or Friends events. It is incredibly powerful for a child who stutters to meet fellow children who stutter to gain a sense of “I am not alone.” It can also be very therapeutic for parents to attend support groups and meet other parents of children who stutter.

A Non-Profit Organization Helping Those Who Stutter

The mission of the Stuttering Foundation is to educate the public and provide no-cost and low-cost resources about stuttering. They have an incredibly informative website with many downloadable resources. They also sell books, pamphlets, posters, etc.
