Cameron is a happy and playful four-year old who has been receiving speech therapy through our Clinic since August 2012. His parents brought Cameron into the Clinic secondary to concerns that he “mispronounced many basic words and had a hard time correcting them when prompted.” His parents wanted to, “address the issue before his self-esteem and confidence was affected, in case he was not understood by other adults and peers.” His parents noted that their son “has shown a lot of progress since the treatment at the Scottish Rite Speech and Language Clinic began. Although he has a lengthy vocabulary he still hesitates to use a lot of language because he doesn’t want to make a mistake. This has been a slow process but it has been very rewarding.” According to Cameron’s parents, “He continues to work on pronouncing multi-syllabic words and improving his sentence structure,” in his therapy sessions. In addition, Cameron is working on reducing his frontal lisp on /s/, /s/-blends and /z/ in all positions of words. Cameron’s Mother stated, “It feels great to know that someone else cares and works with my child. It makes me feel that I am not alone in this effort. Our speech therapist Jenna is an amazing professional and has a tremendous love for what she does. She has a deep knowledge of speech techniques and child development and communicates with our child in a gentle holistic manner that inspires love and security. If I feel this way, I know my son does too. Our family thanks the San Jose Scottish Rite Speech and Language Clinic for everything you have done for Cameron. He loves working with you Jenna.”
