Testimonials

"She did amazing therapy with my son. I could see the progress after each session. The therapist saw my son twice a week, with the 2nd session including a child that struggles with the same things and has the same interests. It was an amazing opportunity for my son to work on his social interaction, to understand what he should or shouldn't say when he is having an interaction with other children. I recommend working with her, she is the best speech therapist we ever had."

"PW did a great job at improving my son's speech over a small time frame. We wanted a head start before kindergarten and gain tools that we could continue to use at home and PW provided that for us. We really appreciated the sliding fee scale for families that were paying out of pocket like us. I think the thing I appreciated most is PW really focused on and appreciated my son's individuality and interests. He loves games and certain characters and PW did a great job incorporating his interests and likes into our sessions to keep him excited and peak his interest. Also, I have a younger daughter and was unable to find childcare for her for some sessions and PW did a great job at including her in the sessions."

"Since coming to Prairie Wind Speech over 3 years ago, it always amazes me how the therapist uses every minute of every session so well with both of our kids. Her ability to adapt to each child and create on the spot "play" to help in the advancement of our kids is amazing to me. Her overall heart felt and sincere care for her clients is palpable. When we get compliments from school staff, neighbors, and family alike on how our kids are progressing/navigating their everyday life, it's people like her that we have to thank for this."

"There is nothing better than seeing people pour their heart and soul into everything they do to help your child. Before Prairie Wind Speech Therapy, we were unsure of the future for our son. Within the first week of starting, our hopes and dreams for him came back and we knew there was nowhere else we would go. The progress he has made from when we started 18 months ago has assured us we made the right decision."

"She has helped my son make great progress on his speech and language goals, working with us every step of the way to make the process seamless and collaborative. She really got to know us as a family and formed a great relationship with our son; this has had a hugely positive impact on his therapy outcomes. She is a top notch SLP and we would recommend her to our family and friends."
