What our Happy Parents Say
My daughter received early intervention speech therapy with Assential Therapies, and her improvement in just 4 months was remarkable. Our therapist, Miss Calli, was patient and encouraging, and Lottie looked forward to her visits each week. She also made sure to give us concrete skills to work on at home. My only regret is that we didn’t start sooner!
We did early intervention when our son was under three years of age but he aged out of it. I was initially worried whether the prescribed therapy would fit specifically with our needs. The therapists were very easy to work with and were flexible and open to creating unique therapy techniques specific to my child’s needs.
I truly feel like the staff and therapists at Assential Therapies cares about my son’s growth and development and also about my concerns as a mother. I feel very supported and comforted knowing that we are here for treatment!
I would recommend Assential Therapies to a close friend because they have high morals, high ethics, and they are up for the challenge. They are all very skilled and very nice.
