"Our son, age 12, has been working with Emily since he was in 2nd grade. He has become a more confident learner and uses her tricks to be more detailed when he is talking and writing. When he started working with Emily, he was quiet and didn't raise his hand in class, even though he often knew what he wanted to say. Now his teachers say he is the most outspoken kid in the class!" - Cindy
"When we had a speech therapist come to the house a few years ago to help our daughter say her 'r', our daughter was miserable and would put a sign on her door that said "NO!!" After we took a break, we found Emily, who made our daughter happy and confident and finally getting the 'r' thing!
She's got an 'r'!!" - Robert
"Emily has been tremendously helpful with our daughter, age 12. She has taught her important skills and strategies which she will utilize throughout her life. This has in turn given our daughter greater confidence in her academic tasks." - Debbie
"As an educator, I understand what children need for growth. It is often a challenge for parents to appreciate that getting their child help as early as possible is the best way to ensure a positive future for them.
Emily is the full package. She is highly skilled and knowledgeable and also has the ability to relate to the children and parents she works with. She is patient with children, and their parents too. She adapts her approach to fit the needs of the individual child. She is truly excellent -- she focuses on many different areas of speech, writing, articulation, reading and she makes sure learning is fun and engaging! I recommend her highly and I believe any child would benefit working with her."
