Small Steps in Speech has been such a wonderful opportunity for both Tomas and Joseph.
For Tomas it has meant an opportunity to receive individualized therapy, which is focusing intensely on a small handful of goals. Over the past 6 months, Tomas has made tremendous gains with both his expressive and receptive language. He is now making spontaneous requests and more consistently comprehending orally presented information. His family found such an asset and opportunity when they discovered SSIS.
For Joseph, he discovered words! He came to therapy almost completely nonverbal now Joseph is using words daily, many which are completely clear. SSIS awarded Joseph the opportunity for a customized therapy program which fits his specific needs.
Both these boys are enrolled in the school system and receive services through the schools; however, it just wasn’t enough! Lucky for Tomas and Joseph SSIS stepped in to award these young boys with a gift of service something that their families will be forever thankful for. As the provider, I am grateful for the opportunity to work with these young children and also make an impression with their future.
