Nathan is an eight and a half year old boy who has been seen at the Scottish Rite Speech and Language Clinic once a week for 17 months.  When Nathan first began services at the clinic, he was lisping and having trouble correctly producing several consonant blends and the “r” sound.
Nathan has made great progress.  He no longer lisps and has no trouble making consonant blends.  The “r” sound has continued to be hard for him but he has mastered “r” at the beginning of words and the “er” sound.  Nathan is a bright, funny and very mature eight year old, who loves games, sports and jokes.  Nathan’s mother, Jenny recently completed a survey about her experience at our clinic.
Nathan’s mother heard about the clinic through a friend and researched it on-line.  After therapy she stated, “Nathan no longer lisps and he can speak far more clearly.  Even his problems with the letter “r” have been reduced greatly.”  She stated, “Nathan use to get very frustrated when he was not understood at school and at home, he would cry and yell constantly.”  She reported,  “Now Nathan is very confident and happy.”
When asked what has been most rewarding about receiving services here she stated, “Watching Nathan’s confidence build and not having to constantly ask him -what did you say, I’m sorry I still can’t understand you.  This had made a tremendous impact on all of us.”
She described her experience by saying, “Our therapists have been warm, caring, friendly, helpful, understanding, accommodating and professional.”
When asked if she would refer other parents to this clinic, she stated, “ I have told other parents about our wonderful experience with this clinic.  The process of going through speech therapy can be daunting and the Scottish Rite offers a high quality program in a caring environment.”
Nathan’s mother stated, “We are so grateful to have had Nathan accepted into the Scottish Rite speech program.  Nathan’s speech, attitude, and confidence have improved tremendously.”
Thank You!!!
