Tell us about how things were going before therapy began.

Oct 22, 2020

Robby was extremely frustrated trying to express himself. He made up for his lack of language skills by using the rest of his body to communicate and "act out" what he wanted to say but when we didn't understand, he would completely lose it.

Was there a moment that stood out to you where you felt that sense of joy, relief, or excitement?

A few weeks into therapy, Robby started singing along with the movie Moana. He'd been watching it regularly for months but always in silence and he seemed to have a "thing" about other people singing. He never wanted anyone else to sing for some reason. So when HE started singing to his favorite movie I was relieved to realize he enjoyed the music and wanted to participate himself. And now he could!

Was there a specific team member that you would like to acknowledge?

What has made the biggest impact on you/your family?

Hearing each new word, phrase, or sentence Robby adds to his language skills every week has been so exciting and rewarding.

Would you like to share more about your journey or where you/your child has progressed to now?

Robby transformed from an angry, frustrated two-year old with just a couple of words into a confident, expressive storyteller whose conversations captivate his audience.

“I am very pleased with our speech therapist. My daughter immediately felt comfortable with her. Through this, my daughter has begun to express herself verbally. She is able to communicate her needs and has gone from speaking one word to at least 20 words in four months”   – Angela 
"[The therapist] is absolutely wonderful.  My 2 1/2 year old daughter developed a rapport with her the first day.  [She] is patient, supportive, enthusiastic and engaging.  I have already seen my daughter's language flourish in the short time she has been working with [her].  I am extremely grateful to Expressive Connections for all of their help." - Laura
"[The therapist] has a pleasant disposition and my daughter has been quick to engage with her.  Not to mention, she brings many age appropriate toys to keep her interested and motivated in working with her.  Inga also works with the parents in giving them tips on how to continue fostering speech at home which is very helpful." - Dorothy

She established an excellent rapport with my family very early and my granddaughter’s speech skills are improving noticeably weekly because of [her] dedication.” - Mamie
