“You are the key to unlock his voice”
I just showed his PT the video and he was so PROUD of himself watching it with her. I think he gets so sad when you leave bc he realizes you are the key to unlock his voice. 💚
“Knowledge and Dedication”
I am a Mom of a 4 year old boy with a speech delay who is also a picky eater. Before meeting Rachael, my son was in therapy for about 11 months. He not only hated going to therapy, but I also was very frustrated because I didn’t see much progress in his speech.
“Passionate and Patient”
At the risk of sounding dramatic – Rachael has the passion and perseverance of Annie Sullivan. She is truly invested in her ‘kids’ and their progress in speech. It has been slow going for our son, and Rachael has consistently being able to challenge him without frustrating him. She had advocated for him and is open to collaborating with other therapists. In addition She has been an empathic listener and support to me as a parent. She shares with equal excitement when our son has breakthroughs.
Rachael has the most positive, can-do attitude that a parent could ask for! When we were trying to find high-calorie foods to add into our son’s diet, she was a constant resource, providing new ideas and ways to add healthy fats to his diet. Rachael knows when and how to push our son and stretch what he’s capable of in terms of his chewing and drinking capabilities. I love her openness and willingness to try new things – whether that’s a new cup, a new spoon, she has an open mindset which has benefited our son tremendously.
“An Absolute Treasure”
We feel extremely fortunate to have found Rachael this fall. She is the best speech therapist we have had since starting over four years ago! She is extremely patient, kind and an absolute pleasure. Not only does Rachael give us fun weekly homework assignments, but she also provides videos of the techniques and strategies she uses during her sessions. My daughter is always so excited to see Rachael each week and has made so much progress in the seven months we have been working together. We cannot possibly recommend Rachael more highly!
“Skilled at Both Speech and Feeding Therapy”
We are so grateful to Siena for her work with our two-year-old son. Sienna is skilled at both speech and feeding therapy. From the first moment we met, Sienna taught us to interpret our son’s body language during feedings (apparently he presented as defensive at times – who knew?!) and gave us valuable advice to engage him without distracting him from the task at hand. Sienna helped our son learn to combine words, skillfully engaging him in a variety of fun and interactive activities. She also guided him to develop some new self-help skills, which he carried over to our home. She worked collaboratively with the rest of our team and offered detailed, thoughtful feedback about our son’s progress and goals. Thank you, Sienna!
“What? I’m your client? Like, my parents pay you to come here? I thought you just came to play.” Quote from a client after 5 months of therapy.
“Adapts/Tailors her Approach to your Child”
We are so lucky we found Rachael! Her sessions are built around play and her techniques are very effective. She took the time to connect with my daughter and understand her interests so that my daughter is eager for Rachael’s visits, which makes all the difference. Rachael is very creative and adapts/tailors her approach to your child. My daughter expressed a dislike for “winning games” so Rachael offered to play cooperative games instead.
“Extremely passionate about her work”
Finding a therapist for our daughter who is talented in both speech therapy and feeding therapy was a challenge. Thus, when we met Rachael, our quest was beyond fulfilled. Rachael comes to our home every week with a whole toolbox full of ideas (and tools!) along with a kind, nurturing and patient demeanor. Her skill set has helped my daughter tremendously, and her thoughtful, individualized treatment plans allow for me to carry over her magnificent work throughout the week. It is very obvious that Rachael is extremely passionate about her work, which is shown through her thoroughness, dedication and devotion towards our daughter’s therapy. We are so lucky to be working with Rachael!
“With Sienna, my daughter had an advocate, I had a partner”
In our special needs journey, the beginning was the hardest. Not quite understanding our daughter’s condition, not quite knowing who could help. Feeding therapy before Siena was a confusing revolving door of therapists who did little to help me understand why my daughter was not feeding well and how to help her. I will never forget the stress of always worrying if my daughter would drink/eat enough to improve her weight percentile.
What my daughter never saw is all the hard work and dedication Sienna put into her case. Behind the scenes, Sienna worked hard at collaborating with myself and other therapists to provide exceptional and thorough care. She would spend countless hours researching new foods, pertinent studies, interesting toys for my daughter. Always humble enough to know that she wants to learn more, Sienna would go to continuing education seminars and come back excited to tell me what she learned as pertinent to how she can better help us. She tirelessly created visuals for her to get started with picture communication. I still don’t know if Sienna sleeps at night because I know she provides this level of care to all her kiddos.
With Sienna, we did not just have a therapist- my daughter had an advocate, I had a partner.
“Asked for her on days off”
Rachel is an absolutely amazing speech therapist and person. She has helped my 2 year old so much and I am so grateful to her. My daughter took to her immediately and is excited whenever she walks through our door – she has even asked for her on days off/ We are so lucky to have her on this journey and I highly recommend her!
Our son was on stage for a school spelling bee yesterday morning and he sounded GREAT!!! I wish I had a video. I know he’s still working on those last sounds, but really – you have made such a difference. Thank you!! It really made me feel like the time and effort spent on speech has been worthwhile. He can get up there with confidence and articulate himself clearly. It’s a big deal!!
“Upbeat and Creative”
We feel so lucky to have found Rachael. She is extremely upbeat and creative with lesson plans and homework, and most important FUN! Our son looks forward to her visit and sees his time with her as play.
Our son has shown so much progress with his speech. He is confident and loves to talk. Now he walks up to friends on the playground and initiates conversation.
“Child Friendly Patience”
Our four year old daughter has been extremely fortunate to work with Rachael Rose several times a week during the last year. I cannot emphasize enough how lucky we are to have found Rachael. Our daughter has been working with severe articulation challenges and we are thrilled with the progress she has made. Rachael has the perfect combination of child friendly patience and fun while remaining goal-based and clinically responsible.
“It amazes me to hear him talking so much now”
It is hard to imagine our son not seeing Rachael anymore. He achieved so much with her and we know we cannot keep her forever when there are other babies who need Rachael. Thank you for all you’ve done with him. He has come so far with you. When I think about his drooling and strange back of the throat sounds when we first started, it amazes and amuses me to hear him talking so much now!
“Dedicated, Resourceful and Knowledgable”
Our daughter has had speech therapy for more than 3 years now. We have worked with 7 different speech therapists for our daughter’s complicated speech issues. We started working with Rachael less than a year ago and I can’t even begin to describe the remarkable progress our daughter has since made.
I asked my son if he wanted to start learning Irish, and he said “only if someone like Rachael comes to my house to teach me.” We will keep you in mind if we hear of people who are looking for a fabulous therapist.
“Hard Working, Creative, and Persistent”
Rachael has been seeing our son “K” for the past year, and since then he has made significant progress in the areas of speech and independent feeding. Our son is on the autism spectrum, and before seeing Rachael he was requesting for a limited set of things/activities using single words.
“Dedication and Enthusiasm”
We are so grateful for your help. He has made so much progress since you started working with him! Your dedication and enthusiasm is always apparent and we believe he is where he is today because of your hard work. Thank you so much!
