Andrew is a fun-loving, kind twelve year-old-boy who has been receiving speech therapy at The San Jose Scottish Rite Speech and Language Clinic once a week for the last calendar year. His parents heard about our clinic through a teacher at a local school district. Upon beginning treatment at the clinic, Andrew’s parents noted difficulties understanding him, as he was unable to pronounce certain words. While attending the clinic, he initially worked on reducing his frontal lisp on /s/, s/-blend and /z/ sounds in words, and producing grammatically correct sentences, with appropriate verbs and prepositional phrases. Today, Andrew continues to work on his articulation in structured conversation, possessives, pronouns, and the understanding of sentence completion/construction.  
Andrew’s parents reported, "Andrews speech and language skills are improving. He can understand language much more thanks to the clinic services and the two clinicians who have been working with him. Thanks to Mrs. Jenna and Mrs. Angela, Andrew is also doing better in school. The most rewarding part is that the Scottish Rite Clinic has helped care for our child’s speech and language needs. We have had a fantastic experience coming to this Clinic. We are so appreciative that Ms. Jenna updates Andrews’s speech and language goals, reports his progress to us every so often and finds new ways to help Andrew. We continue to recommend this clinic to parents who also have children with speech and language needs, so they can receive the same help with we have been given.” Andrew is a pleasure to work with and we are so proud of him. Keep up the good work Andrew!
