Client Testimonials

  • "My character and value of dedication strengthened because of my articulation errors. All 52 Tuesdays of the year, I would wake up at 6am to go to speech therapy. From the time I was able to talk, my speech always sounded off, but everyone thought this was because I was young, and it could be easily fixed...My speech therapy was at the University of Maryland Speech and Hearing Clinic with Ms. Mont and the student-clinicians. I could have quit and still have major articulation errors, but I did not give up...Speech therapy taught me dedication."
