"Melanie, we can't thank you enough for all you do! You have been a central contributor to her amazing success! I really appreciate that you are able to accomplish so much hard work with her, yet still somehow make it fun! The fact that she wants to be a "speech teacher" when she grows up and plays "listening check" all the time speaks volumes to your significance in her life. Thank you!"
"This has been a tremendous success. Hearing is an integral part of my life now. My life is very different from where it was two years ago. I am very happy with how it has turned out. I will always be thankful to you, Melanie, and everyone else who helped me get here. I remember that at the start people were unsure I'd have more than sound awareness, let alone speech comprehension. Yet here I am able to have a conversation in a noisy environment, watch TV, and enjoy music. The aural rehabilitation therapy you gave me and the listening exercises I've learned made this possible. Thank you again for everything."
"Your passion, dedication, care and love shines through every day in who she is becoming. Her progress has been remarkable, every week we notice different words that sound clearer than they did the week before. It is a miracle that where there was once silence there is a happy, singing, chatty little voice. Thank you for your tremendous effort in helping that miracle to happen!"
"Throughout the course of each session with Melanie, he has shown improvements in his auditory skills, expressive and receptive language including vocabulary. In the beginning of his early intervention speech therapy, my biggest concern was his lack of producing final consonant sounds of words. With Melanie's guidance he showed improvement by producing the final consonant or using a marker sound. He was producing most if not all early developing consonant sounds. Melanie continued to work with him to produce age appropriate sounds in all positions."
"Melanie is great at clearly explaining the purpose and goals of each therapy session. She consistently provides strategies and techniques that can be utilized outside of the session to further her development. Melanie also demonstrates good follow through by reviewing previous activities and concepts with us to ensure understanding while also building confidence. My daughter is constantly improving her verbal expressive language skills"
"What I admire and appreciate the most is Melanie's professionalism and her attention to detail. During each session, Melanie consistently goes over all our goals during our time together. She is very thorough and is able to grab his attention with engaging activities. Melanie reinforces all our previous goals as well as incorporates all our new goals in each session. With her help, we have seen a great improvement in his speech and definitely look forward to her visits."
