WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I thank God that we met Brooke on a weekly basis, after every session she has with our son. Brooke genuinely invests in getting to know each kid she works with. She has provided excellent support and guidance for our son in his struggles to understand social pragmatics, and she does so with exceptional patience and a sense of humor. Most importantly, my son enjoys his sessions with her and is making great progress with her help. In the world of speech and language providers, Brooke is a rare find!
