“We would like to start by saying Mrs. Adrienne is such a pleasure to work with. She is very patient and kind to not only our child but our whole family. I don’t know what we would do without her. I would highly recommend her to anybody who is looking for a speech therapist. She truly is the greatest.”

Family of 7 year old

“I can’t say how blessed we are to have found Ms. Adrienne! My son doesn’t realize he is even doing speech therapy as she incorporates so many cool activities/play into her sessions. It’s not just a job to her, I can tell she really cares about her work.”

Mother of an 8 year old

“Ms. Adrienne always has a smile and the children love working with her. She gives 110% all the time and is very creative and resourceful, and very patient and compassionate.”
