''When my son Matteo was 16 months old, he was diagnosed with a speech-language delay. As parents we were very concerned and sought help, we went to two speech-language pathologists and we were unsuccessful. Once we got to Susana's hands there was a "Click" between Matteo and her ... From the first day there were positive changes in our son and after 8 weeks Matteo already knew how to say many words and had understood many things that I as a father had not managed to achieve. I highly recommend Susana, she is a professional and loves what she does. I wish there were many Susanas to help all our children!''
''We had the fortune of crossing paths with Susana in 2019 for Speech-Language therapy for my daughter with autism spectrum disorder. By that time, my daughter had several therapists beforehand but the connection that both of them established was incredible! They clicked in a way that was different from any other therapist she had had to date. The warmth and love in the sessions was obvious, my daughter was excited beyond belief!. Her growth and progress has been exceptional. Finding that engagement is remarkable and we have seen her unique and energetic personality blossom over a consistent and fun-filled routine. Susana is not just a therapist, she is our empathetic advocate and close confident in all things regarding our special needs daughter.''
Thank you Susy for your empathy in each skill and word you taught my son Sebastian. I remember that "HELP"was the first word you worked on which filled me with hope as I saw how his communication was growing and gained meaning. Thank you for being Sebastian's "Speech Cookie Monster", as he so calls you.
My daughter Sofia was very lucky to meet and work with Susana when she was just 5 years-old, (a couple years after she was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder). They immediately bonded and Susana’s amazing skills and loving personality helped my daughter develop and grow her abilities. I can honestly say that Susana has made a very positive impact in my daughter’s development and I would highly recommend her speech-language pathology services to any child who needs it.
