We look forward to be becoming a fixture in the community.
Dear Chatter Box, I am very grateful for all that you have done to help him with his speech. We could not have done it without you. We will miss your smiling face. Thank you very much. I will definitely keep you posted regarding his progress. Lots of love.
Chatter Box, there are no words to describe how much my husband and I appreciate all your time, patience and caring ways you have shown my daughter. She has made such great progress over this past year and part of it is because of you and your work with her. She has much more to but she is this far because of all your great therapist. Thank you for everything.
Can’t Thank You Enough
Everyone at The Chatter Box, my husband and I can’t thank you enough for all you have done. Having the chance to come to this playgroup has helped him in so many ways! We are looking forward to see you when my other child is old enough. Thanks!
Because of You
Dear Chatter Box, Just a quick note to thank you for all your help with my son. He has made such huge strides with his speech and development and a big part of it is because of you.
An Awesome Opportunity
Chatter Box, My husband and I would like to thank you and your staff for giving my son the opportunity to come to the Chatter Box and work with him. You guys have helped his speech so much and truly brought out the best in my child. Thanks to you all, his speech has improved and has really increased his vocabulary as well as his social skills. I know he is going to miss seeing you guys. I will speak highly of you and your staff and recommend The Chatter Box! This was an AWESOME opportunity, thanks again.
Dear Chatter Box, I wanted to thank you so much for the birthday book and especially for the excellent care at The Chatter Box. We really feel it made a big difference in helping her prepare for school. We know she was in great hands and appreciate all the special little things you did to get her involved, participating and so interested. She loved her mornings with you!! We only wish she had started earlier to have more time. We speak highly of you guys to everyone we talk to. Thank you so much for giving us such a wonderful experience in my child’s development. You are all special people.
Changed His Life
Dear Chatter Box, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for providing therapy for my son. Because of therapy that was provided, my child is now living a more normal, happy life. Five months ago, before therapy started, my son was a different child. Beyond the fact that we could not understand what he said, he behaved terribly. He threw fits that would last for hours. He banged his head against his hands, me and the wall. I could go on and on about all of the negative behaviors that exhibited. My son and his twin are our first children, so we were unsure if his behavior was the result of “terrible twos” or something worse. The straw that broke the camel’s back was when I took him to a ballgame last March. While I struggled to keep him in my lap, he screamed, cried, and banged his head against my chest as hard as he could for almost two hours. I finally called First Steps for help, and found that he was exhibiting behaviors of a child with sensory issues. Being an educator, I was upset with myself for not figuring this out sooner, but decided that we would do whatever needed to be done to help him with the issue. At first, I was unsure of the strategies. They seemed very forceful and direct. As a mother, I really had to move myself out of the way and let the therapist do her job, even in the beginning, I wanted to scoop my baby up and say “forget it”. I am so glad that I got out of the way of my child’s health and happiness. The therapist has worked with my son every week since the end of May, and he truly is a different child. Although he still has moments, he handles situations better, and we know how to help him through rough patches. He is speaking much more clearly and can express his frustrations verbally rather than throwing a fit. I am confident that the time that Alex spent with his therapist has changed his life. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful young lady with our family. Not only is she our therapist she is our friend.
