EMPOWERING PARENTS & IMPROVING OUTCOMES

As parents and caregivers, we know first hand what it's like to have a child with special needs or learning delays.  And it's tough, if not impossible, to stay on top of getting the needed level of care from medical, educational and community resources. 

 

Together we can create a strong plan to leverage services and improve your child's outcomes.  We'll develop a focused vision by aligning your current supports, finding new resources, and starting (or stepping up) home practices using techniques designed by professional 

Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs).

Noah's Mom

Deirdre helped me sort through a very confusing time when my son was first diagnosed.  She asked questions to understand what I thought was best for my child and family then gave me a simple plan of best next steps.  She has a way of reminding you to stay present and not get too far ahead which helped me a lot.

"Deirdre wrote a gap plan for my daughter to promote her successful transition to kindergarten and a new school.  She introduced me to new resources, provided materials for organization, and shared ideas.  Deirdre has a rare combination of professional and personal experience.  I am grateful for her help and support."

Daniel's Mom

 

Deirdre helped our family apply for LISS funding, answered our questions and gave us referrals to use for services after we received an award.  It is simple now, but going through it wasn't and it was great to have someone to call for guidance.
