Beyond Speech Therapy has been a blessing for our family! My son struggles with a speech delay and for three years I have seen the remarkable improvement and confidence grow in my son. I know the dedication, care, and compassion of his therapists is a huge part of his success. Mrs. Lauren for speech and Mrs. Maureen for OT know how to balance work with fun and my son looks forward to their visits every week! I am beyond grateful for all the support and hard work to help make my son the best he could be. Thank you, Mrs. Lauren, Mrs. Maureen, and everyone at Beyond Speech!

Beyond Speech has been such a great fit for my 5 year old son. He has been with one of their speech therapists for about a year and we've definitely seen some gains in his speech. They are very patient with my son, and adjust to his needs very well. They are easy to work with and the staff are very responsive with any questions you may have with insurance, billing or scheduling.

I would highly recommend Beyond Speech. The staff was so helpful for the upfront paperwork process to get started quickly. My son meets with an OT and Speech Path weekly in our home. It's convenient and making an impact in his development quickly. The process to create goals and keep our son motivated and looking forward to each visit has been great. Both therapists clearly care about making a difference, listen for input and bring new ideas and tools to help him reach his goals. Thank you Stephanie and Dana!

I am so thrilled to have found Beyond Speech Therapy Specialists!! I love that the therapists are able to come to my home so my 3 year old feels comfortable in his own setting. It was easy to get started and they worked with my insurance on my behalf. Brittany and Angie are wonderful with my son - they are friendly and creative- and really want him to succeed on all levels of development, not just speech. I addressed some behavior issues and Brittany got back to me the same day with her recommendations. I highly recommend Beyond Speech Therapy.

We have been receiving both speech and occupational therapy for about two years now. The progress that my son has made is incredible. Lauren and Maureen are very professional and caring! I highly recommend them and really appreciate the hard work not only they put in but also the people in the office that make everything so easy for us!

My daughter began therapy at Beyond Speech for Occupational Therapy in our home. We were so lucky to be paired with Mrs. Maureen. She was always finding new ways to motivate my daughter and adding fun projects for her to do. While our goal was to make sure she was Kindergarten ready with her writing skills, we covered so much more in our time in therapy. I'm happy to say she's thriving in Kindergarten and her recent evaluation shows that she is no longer needing any OT at school. As a family that has experienced 6 years of therapies, I can highly recommend Beyond Speech.

I highly recommend Beyond Speech Therapy. It was so great having the convenience of at-home therapy vs. going somewhere for the therapy sessions. The 2 therapists that worked with my son were amazing and so patient! They even included my other son in some of the activities too! We saw quite an improvement in my son. They were always quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had and provided so many resources for us as parents to use at home.

I highly recommend Beyond Speech. I have seen significant improvement since my daughter started services a year ago with our therapist. Ms. Angie always keeps me informed of my daughter's progress. She also provides additional exercises and activities to reinforce what my daughter learns during the session. Angie has been extremely flexible with schedule changes, particularly during COVID. We are very happy with the results and the wonderful professionalism of the owners and staff at Beyond Speech.

My experience was truly excellent in all respects. Megan and Maureen were knowledgeable, skilled, patient, and engaging. My daughter looked forward to her PT and OT therapy sessions each week! Megan and Maureen took the time (each session) to explain and review all exercises and goals. I would highly reccommend Beyond Speech Therapy to all! And the icing on the cake, they come to you in your own home. Thank you so much Megan and Maureen!!

Beyond Speech has been amazing!! We feel so fortunate to have worked with them. Our son Alex worked with Jill for for a year and a half. He started working with Jill and was reaching goal after goal. We are happy to say that he has graduated from speech with Jill and with school as he reached all his goals. Jill is so easy to work with. Alex loved her and always looked forward to working with her. She always had engaging lessons and he is truly sad to be done working with her. Beyond Speech comes into your home and makes it such a family like experience. We can’t recommend it enough!!

Beyond Speech Therapy exceeded all of our expectations when it came to Speech & Language services for our daughter. With our daughter being so young, Beyond Speech Therapy was a perfect fit with services being administered in our home where our daughter is most comfortable. From the initial phone call, setting up insurance, the evaluation process, beginning services, and all therapy sessions; the entire process very easy, seamless, comfortable and geared to what suited our daughter and family best.
During COVID, we were given up-to-date information and our therapist always arrived with clean and individual toys, wore a mask and was very cautious and courteous.
We are very grateful for making this time such a wonderful experience and would highly recommend to other families.

I am extremely pleased with Beyond Speech Therapy. My son has has had 2 sessions and is already improving. His therapist Bri makes him feel very comfortable and works extremely well with him. She takes time to explain the work with me and my husband. I am very optimistic about his progress. In fact- I will also be requesting she assist with my other son. She is THAT amazing. Overall , I am very impressed with this business model and believe it works well for working families. It also is very comforting for children who are already struggling with insecurities associated with their individual challenges.
Thanks again Lauren.

Mrs. Laura helped to change our daughter’s life! Right before quarantine hit, we noticed that our daughter’s speech was delayed for her age. She was 2 months from turning 2 years old, and she only said 3 words; Mama, Dada, Baba. We began our speech journey in March right when the world went into lockdown. Amelia did her sessions over zoom with Mrs. Laura who did a wonderful job with keeping her engaged with screen sharing, asking her favorite songs/interests, etc. We got so many tips on how to help our little one day to day. We did mouth/tongue exercises with her, helped with positioning for certain sounds, and made sure she attempted to try new sounds when “asking” for food/toys. Once we were finally able to meet face to face, things only got better. Through flash cards, games, songs, and positive reinforcement and encouragement, our daughter thrived. Fast forward to now, in less than a year she was able to overcome her issues and sound like other children her age. She will be 3 in a few months and no longer needs speech at this time. Our little girl can communicate clearly with others, sing songs, and let her personality pour out. We were really worried she was going to struggle for years, but she worked hard with Mrs. Laura and beat the odds! Parents, make sure you do your part as well! Working with your child every day really helps everything he or she learns in speech. Consistency and positive support are everything. Thank you so much to Beyond Speech Therapy! We will be forever grateful.

My daughter has never enjoyed her OT sessions as much as she does with Ms. Maureen! She laughs and giggles and gets so much done in a short time! We have seen a huge improvement with her core strength and we love working with Beyond Speech!

I can not say enough wonderful things about ‘Beyond Speech Therapy Specialists.’ The progress my son has made while working with ‘Miss Laura’ has been so exciting for my husband and I to see. She maintains our child’s attention and keeps him fully engaged thruout the hour session she spends with him each week. Not to mention; the sweet bond the two of them share! My son lights up every time she comes to the door, always full of smiles! Laura really has a special way of keeping her sessions fun, while still challenging my child. She also keeps me informed of the techniques she uses and how to apply them at home on a daily basis. I am beyond impressed with the therapy my child has received thus far, and am looking forward to watching him continue to grow!

My 7 year old son needed therapy for his leg. I had called about 10 places asking on info about how much would this cost me and if they took my insurance. These places were rude never gave me a straight answer so I gave up. Beyond Speech Therapy Had left me a voice mail and i had left many voice mails and beyond was one that called me back.
They explained how much and there was no surprise’s and how there place would help my son. I felt good about it and set up appt on what to except. One of the Specialist there she was awesome to my son. He loved going back there and it really helped him get better. This place is good for all kids. If my son needs therapy in the future I will be going back again.
