I can not say enough about the Occupational Therapist, Kris Osher at Pediaspeech. He is a person with great integrity and a talented, insightful therapist. He gave me advice and was available beyond the scope of what he was paid for; and that advice came from a place of true compassion for my son. We saw Kris in 2014 and he suggested several activities I could do with my son over the summer. I implemented every one and saw dramatic improvement in his development. Kris also took the time to explain things to me in a way that allowed me to grasp my sons situation in a way no one ever had before. I can not say enough about how highly I hold Kris and hope that others who need OT care find their way to Kris.

My newborn baby boy was send home with an NG tube. After seeing a GI doctor, ENT doctor and my sons pediatrician no one had a plan for me to get my son off his tube. I wasn't even sure he knew how to take the bottle. I felt helpless and alone. That was until I found Pediaspeech. Jennifer replied to my email and within days my son was evaluated and Carly Morris started him on his way. She even talked with his pediatrician to work on a wean. I am proud to say we moved the tube last week and on Monday I expect his doctor to clear the way to remove the tube completely. If your looking for the best, these guys come highly recommended by me.

Our 2yo daughter is seeing Beth Frilingos at PediaSpeech for a speech disorder. Beth did the initial speech evaluation in August 2011 and has been working with our child since then. Our daughter has made great progress in the last two months, and I know she'll continue making progress with Beth. Based on the diagnosis, we'll be in speech therapy for a few years, so I'm glad we found PediaSpeech and Beth. I feel so much better knowing that Beth has a plan for our daughter and that she helps other children with the same speech disorder. As a mom herself, Beth is great at relating to our little 2yo during therapy sessions. Beth allows me to sit in on the sessions to learn how to better work with our child at home. Beth is also very accommodating when I need to bring our older child along as well. In addition, the support staff is highly knowledgeable about insurance issues and is very helpful in general. I highly recommend PediaSpeech!

My son started seeing Lisa at Pediaspeech when he was 2 yrs old. At the time he only had about 4-5 words. He is now 4yrs old and has over 200 words. Due to scheduling with school we had to change therapist and started seeing Beth and she is such a pleasant person to work with. My son has improved in his expressive and receptive language skills. I love all the therapist at Pediaspeech. They are all great at what they do and the atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming.

My son has seen Beth F. for over a year. He started with articulation issues and has transitioned into reading strategies. We are so happy with the services provided at Pediaspeech and could not be more thankful for the personal relationship he has developed with his therapist. He always enjoys going to his appointments because Beth creates a fun, safe learning environment. I highly recommend this group!

My son has been seeing Lisa at Pediaspeech for almost a year now. He's made vast improvements in his speech but he just thinks he's going there to play, and looks forward to it each week. The therapy visit helps a lot but even more helpful are the strategies that Lisa suggests each week for us to employ at home to keep the progress at top speed. You can't go wrong here.

My son is 8 years old and has been diagnosed with significant reading and language delays as well as an eating disorder. After trying literally dozens of different therapists, we finally found the right ones. Miss Shannon has been working with my son on expressive language, memory, reading comprehension, etc. and he has made TREMENDOUS improvements under her guidance. She is EXCELLENT. Regarding his eating disorder, my son ate nothing but pureed baby food until he was 6 1/2. We tried tons of doctors and therapists--with no luck. We had pretty much given up hope. Then, we found PediaSpeech and Miss Jennifer. She had him eating within THREE months. It has been over a year and he now eats strawberries, pizza, and all of the other "normal kid" foods. We never thought that was even possible. We can't say enough for what PediaSpeech has done for us and our family. It is just short of a miracle. B. Mason

Our son has made significant improvement over the past year, he started seeing Lisa Czech in June 2010. At times in the past, he would get so frustrated and cry when he couldn't communicate his needs. Lisa changed all of that, when he first met Lisa he was resistance, but after a few visits all that change, he couldn't wait to see her. Lisa does a great. In just a few months he was saying words, making letter sounds and saying his shapes and numbers. Thank you so much for all that you have done. What was once gibberish is now "SPOKEN WORDS". Thank you so much.

My son has been working with Lisa Czech for over a year. She has a great relationship with my son and he is able to relax and work on his skills. Lisa always offers ideas and suggestions for ways in which we can help him with activities at home. Lisa is an excellent therapist.

Our son (age 4) has Autism and has been working with Lisa Czech at PediaSpeech for a little over a year. His language skills have improved enormously. Lisa is SO patient, great to work with and lets parents sit in during sessions. Seeing the stuff she does allows us to continue working with him at home.
