It has now been over eight months since our son finished his therapy. There has been no regression back towards any of his old problems. His speech sounds great and all of us are very thankful to Barbara for her excellent work. She gets our highest recommendation.

Barbara has an unmatched deftness understanding the exact deficiencies in a child's language / motor skills. Within 30 minutes she identified and explained things that never occurred to us about our son. Honestly we disagreed with a lot of what she said initially. Almost begrudgingly we began speech therapy. Nearly immediately Bradyn's behavior changed as Barbara explained to us how to better communicate with him and we followed her exercises. It's been a year now. Bradyn went from having no words to learning sign language almost immediately. He now has over 20 words in his vocabulary and is back on track for expectations at preschool. Our only regret is not starting sooner.
A hearty recommendation for Barbara. She is a wonderfully talented individual with a meticulous eye only matched by her commitment to her patient's development.

My orthodontist recommended I try myofunctional therapy once again to retrain my tongue and to learn how to swallow correctly. He referred me to Barbara, and a week later, I was in her office talking strategy with her. I scheduled a lingual frenectomy and future therapy appointments. I had an open gap between my bottom and top teeth that could fit a pinky finger. After my lingual frenectomy and and after several weeks of tongue therapy, I could touch my teeth together and correctly pronounce my S's. I can hear the change in my speech an so can my friends and family. Not only has that improved, but I am finally proud of my smile. I looked forward to seeing Barbara every week to tell her about my progress and just talk about life. She and her staff are some of the most helpful and kindest people you may ever meet. Ultimately, I am pleased with my myofunctional experience.
