I cannot believe the progress my son has made thanks to Jennifer and her excellent team in just 6 months. My son was 5 when a developmental pediatrician recommended speech therapy for his word retrieval and short term memory difficulties. He did not recognize any letters despite teaching him at preschool and me trying at home. We saw Jennifer and Shannon twice a week and within 3 months he recognized all the letters and is now reading his first books. He is far ahead of his class. The wonderful thing about Pedia Speech is not only do they teach the kid, but they also educate the parent in order to work with the child at home. If you worry about your child having a learning disability or falling behind, just have him evaluated by Pedia Speech, they will let you know what's wrong and if they can help. I would really recommend them.

Thanks to Carly Morris at Pediaspeech, our son has made tremendous progress in his speech development. Initially, I was skeptical because the time involvement and cost seemed overwhelming, but the speech therapy has made the most amazing difference for him. In a relatively short period of time, he has gone from very few words...to having a word for everything and now, two-word phrases. Carly has been tough and consistent (which he needed), but was also very loving and sweet and seems genuinely concerned about his development. She always updates me after each session, noting both what they did and things we can work on at home. Overall, we are very pleased and I would certainly recommend Pediaspeech to friends and family.

My daughter saw Shannon Nelson for speech articulation for the last 6 months. She was always thrilled to go and had a great time. Ms. Shannon was a fabulous SLP. She made it fun for my daughter and always sent home practice words to help her progress quickly. She's already been dismissed and we couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Ms. Shannon to all my friends.

My daughter has been with PediaSpeech for one year now; she was formally diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech last fall when she was 20 months old. My husband and I could not be happier with the level of expertise we've received from Jennifer McCullough and Carly Morris or the progress we've seen in our daughter in just one year. We feel like they treat her like one of their own, they keep her focused for the full thirty minutes and give us helpful feedback after every session so we can work on the same issues at home. Best of all, my daughter loves them and is excited to go weekly. In all, I would highly recommend PediaSpeech to anyone who has a child in need of speech services - they are phenomenal and we feel so lucky to have found Jennifer and Carly!

When we first learned of my son's diagnosis we immediately began researching therapists and medical professionals to help us. We wanted the best therapists for him and when we asked friends and colleagues who also had special need children, Jennifer McCullough's name and her practice repeatedly came up. Since engaging Jennifer and her team a year and half ago, we have not been disappointed. After our first meeting with her, we knew we had the right person to help us. In fact, we now recommend her to everyone. Jennifer has not only helped our son avoid a feeding tube (as the result of an aggressive but very doable feeding plan), she has also helped him make progress toward his speech (he's 2 and non verbal) through extensive oral moral treatment. Jennifer is extremely knowledgeable about and committed to helping children with feeding and speech challenges. Every day we are so thankful for her and only wish we could take her home with us! We're also thankful for her friendly staff. Every time we walk in the door, we're greeted with smiles and sincere interest in my son's progress. :)

Carly Morris is my daughter's therpaist and we have been working with her going on a year now. Our daughter has general delays due to low tone and Carly has worked with her to get her speaking and she has and continues to progress with Carly. It was overwhelming dealing with a child with multiple delays but Carly has helped with the process greatly. Would highly recommend Pediaspeech and Carly Morris.

My son has been attending speech therapy at Pedia Speech with Carly Morris for a little under a year now. She is patient and does not loose her cool when he has temper tantrums or behaviors. She is genuinely concerned with his progress and is constantly showing me ways that my family and I can support my son's progress and growth. She makes it fun for the kids, my son is ALWAYS super excited and happy to go to speech therapy. He has had 3 speech therapists in the past year and a half and she is definitely the most consistent, loving focused and genuine one, hands down.

PediaSpeech recently added an Occupational Therapist to their staff & we are thrilled with the addition. Kris is fantastic! He is incredibly creative with the ways he works with my daughter's to meet her goals. He is also very patient with her when she tantrums during a task she does not want to complete. We are so glad PediaSpeech added OT to their services!

After having a horrible experience with another speech group, it was so refreshing to have a fantastic experience with the therapists at PediaSpeech. From the owner to the therapists to the receptionist they are all willing to help with a smile on their face! After a friend recommended to me, I'd highly recommend and have done so to many of my friends!

My son has is 4 yrs old. He has severe verbal Apraxia. He's been working with our therapist at Pediaspeech since March and has made more progress in that time than he has in the past 2-1/2 years. His therapist is amazing and is changing our lives with her expertise and knowledge of his disorder. I'm so thankful that I found this group! The administration team has also gone out of their way to help with insurance and Medicaid coverage, making the transition to this group much less stressful on myself. I can't say enough positive things about his SLP. I can't wait to see the progress my son continues to make.
