"Our son has needed help with speech since age 2, and now he is 8. For most of this time he has worked with Leslie, with excellent results. He is a challenge to engage, has attention and cooperation issues, and Leslie has been able to manage these very well. He has needed support with both understanding language and generating it, but also with other non-verbal aspects of communication, and he has had good support on all counts through Speak Easy. Leslie's patience and creativity have made speech therapy fun and rewarding for our son, and she has been able to help with his ADHD as well as his language development, not to mention being very accommodating and supportive to our family."

"Words can not express the gratitude my husband and I have for Leslie and Speakeasy. Leslie's extensive knowledge of speech and autism has helped my son tremendously. Leslie is patient and a wonderful teacher. My son looks forward to seeing Leslie every week because of the fun and interactive way she engages him. We will continue to visit Leslie until he is in no need of intervention, which with her help, should be soon!
Thank you to Leslie and Speak Easy!"
