Parent Testimonials and Therapy Feedback

We are very proud of the services we provide to the children and their families in our community. Please read some comments from parents of children we have worked with in the past.

“We saw one of your clients today and I have to say you all did a wonderful job.
This is the first time I have ever had a child come back fixed. She no longer exhibits any of the conditions from the last time we worked with her. I am so thrilled! Thank you for sticking with her and getting the job done.”

“Young talkers began seeing my son at the age of 5 when he suddenly developed a stutter that caused him to stop talking at school and in public. From the very beginning he was always treated with love and respect by all the staff at Young Talkers. It has been 3 years of therapy and these therapists are now like family to my son. I tell you honestly that my son enjoys going to therapy and that says a lot! You have given him back his confidence and taught him that its okay to be different but also given him the strategies to use towards more fluent speech. To Ms. Emily…you are amazing and we thank God for placing you in our lives every day. We wouldn’t be where we are today without your love and support. To Ms Stephanie….gosh how we miss you!!!! Talon was always so happy to see you. You were a true asset to both Bridgewater Academy and Young Talkers. We wish you the best at your new job and remember you can come back anytime now. And finally to Ms Vickie and Ms Nicole….thank you for always being so organized and professional. Thank you for supporting our family and always being the bright light.”

“Nicole and Jen both were great! I love that Nicole keeps on top of all the new theories, teachings, and integrates it into her clinic. I hope my son’s next pathologist will be as good! We will miss all of you! May you continue to be blessed & provide all the blessings you have given my family and others!”

“We have been extremely pleased with our son’s progress. Nicole has really made attempts and was extremely successful working with him as he grew and developed over the years. She has always taken a personal interest in him and all he is involved in. Nicole always kept me updated on the progress of his speech therapy. She kept me informed and active in his progress with home practice and feedback. Not only has our son’s speech improved, so has his self-confidence and self-esteem. I am so proud of him! I am extremely happy with the speech therapy he has received over the years. He has come out of his shell! I believe that speech has been a positive force in developing his self-confidence and self-esteem.”

“Jamie James was excellent! I can’t say enough good things about her skill set in providing my son therapy. He is now speaking in full sentences and he comprehends concepts for his age well. Jamie has a wonderful way with children. I think my son has done outstanding, thank you Jamie and Young Talkers for all your hard work and effort!”

“Jamie James, Jennifer Abner, and Jennifer Kudsin all exhibited good patience and love for their job. They all really helped out my son. I thank you for all of your help and assistance in helping my sons speech.”

“I have been very happy with my daughters therapy. We always saw Nicole and feel this consistency helped her make so much progress. My daughter has made excellent progress in reading and speech and knows the necessary strategies to continue to improve. I am very happy with the progress that has been made and feel Nicole was very thorough with her treatment plan. Nicole also listened to my feedback and observations and adjusted her treatment accordingly. Thank you!”

“Jamie was awesome with my daughter! She was always so positive and knew when to push her and when not to. I wish we could take Jamie with us! My daughter used to become very irritable and upset, she has improved so much since starting speech (feeding) therapy. She is more willing to try new types of foods and textures, than prior to therapy. We have been so happy with Jamie, we will miss her!”

“Nicole was amazing. She was very professional and worked so well with my son. She always had such fun games and activities that kept his attention. This reflects on how well my son’s speech has improved. He has come a long way. I am able to understand him much better, which makes my life easier.”

“Jamie helped me to encourage exploration of new food items and lots of information. This therapy was really great and helpful for my son, thank you.”

“My son did not want to try new foods, hated the texture of certain foods, and did not eat meats. Meal times were very frustrating trying to get him to eat or try new foods. Having feeding therapy has helped him try new foods and textures, he will now try anything at least once. After discharge from therapy he will eat almost all foods given to him. Nicole has really made meal time much less stressful and has really made a big change in my child’s eating ability. I think the family involvement part of the feeding therapy was a big help because without the re-enforcement part at home he may have went back to the eater he was before feeding therapy. I would highly recommend Nicole Young-Cline. She did wonders with my son!”

“Nicole has done a great job working with my daughter. She has come a long way with her speech and confidence. We have all enjoyed our time here and working on speech sounds.”

“Jamie worked with my daughter weekly and was a great help to her. The quality of the therapy was excellent, not just what was done at the clinic but the work that was sent home was very helpful also. Jamie was very good at going over everything with us so that we would be able to help our daughter at home.”

“Bringing my children to Young Talkers has been a wonderful experience for both of them. They are easier to understand and it amazes me how much they have learned in such a short time. It is the greatest gift to be able to understand your child and satisfy them by giving them what they need. I was given that gift through speech therapy!”

“Jamie and my son fit well together, she gave caring attention to his needs and has met a lot of his goals. She has helped him meet his communication needs by using a lot of creative ideas. I would recommend any parent to call Young Talkers if they want their child to receive the care that they would give their children.”

“Nicole has been great! Our daughter has come such a long way, it’s amazing! Nicole is so patient and keeps it fun so our daughter is willing to cooperate. She can now say all the letter sounds clearly and is easy to understand. We love the two-way mirror in the observation room for the parents, she would not pay attention as well if I were in the therapy room with them. Thanks for everything! We appreciate all you’ve done for my daughter and she’s enjoyed coming here. It’s incredible how far she has come!”

“I was concerned that my child’s speech difficulties would interfere with his social development. Nicole has been excellent with her teaching style to have my child meet his goals. She provided great feedback as to how he was progressing as well as to areas he was having difficulties. I am extremely pleased with my son’s accomplishments. Nicole is an excellent speech therapist!”

“I am so grateful to Nicole for helping my child, she just loves Nicole. I can’t imagine where we’d be without this intervention. It has helped my child’s confidence so much and has taken away the embarrassment
she used to feel when talking. She doesn’t have to worry about her friends/peers saying that she ‘talks funny’ or ‘sounds different’ now. Those heartbreaking moments are a distant memory, and our family has Nicole to thank. I’m convinced we could’ve never made this progress without her, certainly not on our own or through my child’s school speech therapy programs.”

“Nicole showed me games and activities to do at home that would help my son achieve his speech goals faster. Once I was aware of what I should be doing, I incorporated the games into an everyday routine. I now feel very confident in his ability to grasp the concepts of speaking and understanding. Nicole, I wish you great success in the future. You are so wonderful at what you do; that I know without a doubt that your business will be successful!”

“I think that Ms. Jen and Ms. Emily did such a wonderful job with my son! He progressed so very well with the time he spent with them. I am greatly appreciative for all of the work that was done with him. I think that it is wonderful that I got to watch every session from the observation room so I could see his strengths and weaknesses. He has come such a long way! The therapists were such a great influence for my son!”

“My son’s speech therapist was great! I sat in the observation room (with mirrored glass) and could hear everything with the headphones. This was fantastic because I have a baby so I was able to keep him out of the way while still listening to my son in therapy. I learned a lot from the speech therapist (how to really help him pronunciate and what he is doing wrong.) She provided me with both simple tips that had never even crossed my mind. I am very thankful to her! I never even thought my son needed therapy because he is so young. I let mispronunciation slide, but it has been an incredible experience and transformation in no time. Thank you!”

“My son was having feeding problems including refusing to eat foods, swallowing, and would gag and cough when eating. He also pocketed food, pushed food away, and cried during meals. Jennifer Parent was his therapist. She was professional, caring, friendly. We enjoyed therapy time and looked forward to meet her every time. We are very satisfied with her care for our child. We will recommend her to other parents whose children have similar issues because he improved tremendously during his time in therapy. We would like to thank Ms. Jen for her hard work and compassionate care!”

“The quality of therapy provided at Young Talkers was awesome! The therapists were always fun, knowledgeable, and kept it interesting for my son. I love that we could observe in the observation room and watch his progress, and get tips on how to help at home. Young Talkers has always been very accommodating to my family. They are so sweet with my daughter as well, letting her play and get involved in sessions and pick prizes also. I’ve always felt comfortable being involved with his therapy. Overall, Young Talkers, the therapists, and team of wonderful people are awesome! I am so thankful that we got to bring my son here for his therapy needs. I really have all good things to say about Young Talkers and would recommend them to anyone! Thank you for all you have done for my son and his family!”

“My daughter’s therapy has been wonderful! She has made huge strides through therapy. And is much more confident when speaking to others. I feel she has made amazing progress with her frontal lisp since she started and has all the tools to continue on her own. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”

“My son has improved so much and has developed into a great talker! We couldn’t be more grateful! We have had a fantastic experience at Young Talkers and thank Ms. Jen! He improved his speech skills beyond what we hoped!”

“Young Talkers has done such a great job in helping both my boys achieve their goals to speak clearly and communicate with others. The therapists go above and beyond to help each child. As a former educator, I would recommend this practice to any family whose child is in need of speech therapy”
