3.5 Yr Old Boy, Autism Spectrum Disorder

Lisa is an extraordinary therapist. When we connected with her, my 3.5 year old son was knee deep into a year’s worth of speech therapy and had made little to no progress. Lisa was new to town and came highly recommended by a mother that had known her in New York. After our first conversation, I had a feeling she would be a game changer for us…and I was right! Lisa is much more than a speech therapist. She completely changed the muscle tone in my son’s face, mouth and jaw and impressed upon us the importance of the “little things” that aid in effective speaking and articulation. In addition to basic speech learnings, she pinpointed his motor planning issues as it related to receptive language. The homework that she provided was specific, easy to follow and very effective if we were diligent on our end. 

I have learned so much from her and we have seen enormous improvements over time.  Lisa is a dream therapist and a key player, if not the coach, when it comes to an effective therapy team. My son adores her and will talk with her more than anyone. She truly “gets” him and he trusts and works hard for her. For a mother, it doesn’t get much better than that.
