We had been to a few speech therapists but still had little language by the time Hayden was 4 years old. A friend of mine told me about a gifted speech therapist that was opening her own clinic (more than 5 years ago). When we started seeing Erin for therapy, it was clear she was different from the beginning. She looked at my son as a whole, instead of just having Down syndrome. You could see the wheels turning in her head on how she could help this child—and she did help him. She gave him language which as been the greatest gift of all.
When my littlest son regressed into autism and eventually lost all of his language, it was clear that if he was to receive the best help to get him talking again, that would be at Monkey Mouths. The boys love Monkey Mouths and race to the door to see who can get there first. It is a fun and positive learning environment!
