My son has received speech therapy from MJ Kidz since January. When he started he maybe had ten words. He used a combination of gestures,sign language, and PECS to communicate. Now, roughly six months later, and his language has exploded! He attempting to say all words! He can also say short sentences. We can communicate with mostly language everyday with little confusion. He is happier, more regulated, and thriving. Every single week since he started speech with Ms. Jamie we’ve heard improvement! I am so happy we found this place. Every employee we have met has been personable, kind, and helpful. They are there to help, and they’ve helped our family so much! I couldn’t be more grateful for MJ Kidz! Highly recommended!
My son is 3yrs old and aged out of early intervention 2 months ago and has been going here ever since for his speech delay. In just these 2 short months he has come so far thanks to his fabulous teachers, Melissa and Leslie.... They are miracle workers when it comes to getting kiddos to learn how to talk because they take the time to even teach how to move his mouth and tongue to produce certain sounds that he struggles with and teach me how to practice those exercises at home. The teachers here are all so enthusiastic and creative with the way they get kids to talk, it is so obvious that they love what they do. Never in a million years would I have thought of some of the tips and tricks that they have taught me to practice the difficult word sounds at home such as using a lollipop to help push back his tongue to work on the "k" and "g" sounds. Bringing my son to MJ Kidz was the best decision I have ever made!
We have been seeing Mary for a little over a year now. It has been a Godsend just having a group of speech therapists in our area, but finding Mary has been the best part. Our son's behavior can be super challenging, but Mary has been super patient and creative with her approach and it has made all the difference in the world. Having been in speech therapy since he was 4 and making such small improvements with an adversarial speech therapist that brought out the worst in him, it has been life changing seeing our son's speech blossom with Mary. He still loves to push her buttons but It has been amazing having her on our team. I would like you all to know how much we appreciate her!
