"I highly recommend the team at Growing Speech for any child in need of speech or occupational therapy, no matter what their level of functioning may be. Jodie, Paige, Caroline, and Cristina will get to know your family while centering their activities around your child's favorite things. They will go the extra mile to research helpful strategies and recommend certain tools to ensure that your family can support your child's development to the best of your ability. Their receptionist, Jenny, is similarly exceptional: she is a delight to be around and will make you and your child feel welcome every time you walk through the door. I cannot imagine finding a better team of knowledgeable, flexible, hard-working, and kind people"
"Jodie helped our daughter overcome significant speaking challenges. She was diligent in the protocol and helped us with exercises and small tips to help her stay consistent in good habits. Through her process and therapy, Ms. Jodie built our daughter's self-esteem and today she is a very confident, young pre-teen who is articulate and speaks confidently to adults, friends, and teachers in school! Ms. Jodie was a great motivator and knows how to connect with children!"
" My son had the unique opportunity to work with Jodie and Valintean for his speech therapy. He worked with both therapists for about two years on his speech delay. As a young child he was very shy and afraid to make mistakes as he was learning his new sounds and oral muscle movements. Jodie and Valintean were patient and made him feel comfortable enough to open up and progress in his therapies. In my opinion, having a speech therapist that includes the parents or caregivers is key to making huge strides towards success. Jodie and Valintean always made sure I was informed on what we could do at home to continue to improve. We feel fortunate to be able to work with them and they have guided him into a song speaking child."
"Jodie worked really well with my son. She established a great relationship which allowed him to be comfortable during the sessions. Jodie provided informative feedback after all sessions and provided helpful information and homework to reinforce the work done in the session. I was very pleased with the therapy she provided."
"My son has been taking speech therapy with Mrs. Jodie for about 2 months now and we could not been happier! In this short time he has really branched out and surprised us with his ability to grow and learn new words. We were feeling very overwhelmed and down after attempting therapy through another program and seeing no results the first time. My son loves attending his therapy sessions and I enjoy hearing him laugh and play freely with Mrs. Jodie, I don't even think he realizes he's there for a therapy session! The front desk associate is very kind, professional, and organized! The office is always clean and inviting. I highly recommend their services!"
"Valintean has been helping one of our elementary students at Excelsior Academy for the past 6 months via on-site speech therapy. We have seen academic and behavior improvements in our student since he has been with Valintean along with working with us. Their team is professional, caring, and easy to work with."
