A Parent Writes:
From the parent of a 7 year old boy who stutters:
“My son no longer writes words on paper instead of talking. Lori learned who my son was as an individual. She makes the therapy sessions fun and engaging. Lori, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You have given my son his confidence back and you have empowered me to help my son!” Read the entire letter
