“About 2 years ago my husband and I decided that our then 2.5-year-old daughter was not speaking age appropriately. At first, we thought maybe it was because she was learning 2 languages simultaneously, but then reality set in that our daughter was a bit behind in her speech/language skills. That is when we came across Paulina, an angel sent from heaven, I kid you not. She began working with our daughter and the progress after each session has been phenomenal. Within months our daughter began talking more and more, answering and asking questions. She is now able to form simple sentences to communicate her wants and needs. She is also making friends because now she can ask them to play with her and join in group activities rather than play on her own. Paulina is in touch with us constantly regarding our daughter’s development and provides us with the tools necessary to strengthen her communication skills at home. My daughter enjoys the time she spends with working with Paulina and I do not know how we will ever thank her for all her help. I know we still have a way to go, but with Paulina’s help and guidance, I am hopefully that my daughter will soon be where she is supposed to be in term of her speech/language skills.”

“Couldn’t be happier…

Paulina first began working with my son, JP when he was 2 years old for speech delay. Paulina had each session carefully prepared with a variety of fun, age appropriate learning activities. She kept notes after every session, gave a summary and provided ideas to work on at home. At the same time, she was so kind and patient with my son. He would eagerly wait by the window for her arrival. JP first made progress using the hand gestures Paulina taught him. From there he began using words and his speech took off. Without Paulina there to gently challenge and provide him with the tools to get started, he would have never made the amount of progress that he did.

Here’s the best part…around his 3rd birthday, I took JP to our highly ranked school district to be screened for services. To my astonishment, the screening consisted of ALL the activities that I had seen Paulina working on with my son. Needless to say, he did not qualify for services. I am so grateful to Paulina for her professionalism, along with the kindness and nurturing she gave my son.”

“Natalia clicked with Paulina right away! She’d get so excited every time Paulina came over. Natalia’s language improved slowly at first and then rapidly expanded from there. Paulina even let her curious older brother participate in the learning process. Natalia is 4 now and strangers tell me all the time what an impressive vocabulary she has. Now she talks, and talks and talks…”

Paulina is a kind, and knowledgeable Speech Therapist who knows how to work with infants and older kids. She has been part of our family already for two years. She works with my two older daughters 9 and 8 and two youngest kids 3-year-old daughter and 17-month-old son. My kids love Paulina and are eager to work with her. For us, she is like a family not the therapist who is coming and going. I would recommend her to anyone. We are very blessed to have her to work with our children.
