- FAMILY COMMENTS:
- “Where do I even begin to thank you for being with our child? There are no words that can explain my gratitude when all of the therapists come in to the house. I didn’t’ think it would be so hard to say good bye. You are one of the people that helped bring our daughter to where she is today. There is nothing I can do or say or give. You are truly a remarkable person and we will never forget you!”
- Kristi’s Early Intervention Reward: “I love showing families new ways to approach language in the child’s natural environment. Watching the joy on the parents and child’s face when they acquire a new skill is an extremely rewarding experience!”
