After working with five different speech therapists, and making virtually no progress, a physician friend recommended that we take our five year-old child, Philip, to see Caroline Serrett at The Speech Language Connection. At our first meeting, we were impressed with Caroline's ability to communicate with children on the spectrum. She was expressive, fun, and had a plan to help our child improve. After nearly seven months of therapy, Caroline repeated the testing that had been administered at the previous clinic. In that length of time, Philip had improved 16 - 18 months in most areas, and 24 months in a few others. His receptive language was finally age appropriate. This was significant progress for a barely verbal child who had been progressing at a rate of 2 weeks per month at his prior clinic -effectively falling further, and further behind. Since then, Philip continues to improve, and my faith in speech therapy has been restored. Now Philip's dad, a physician who treats children on the autism spectrum, recommends Caroline to all of his patients in need of speech therapy.

Caroline is like my child's second mother! She believes in him more than anyone he has ever worked with and pushes him to his maximum potential. When we first came to her over a year ago, my child was withdrawn and basically only using short phrases to get his needs met. Thank God, he is now talking in sentences, sharing his interests, initiating several interactions with others. He is so much more dynamic, imaginative, and creative. Caroline has a real talent with children and is amazing at motivating them. We are happy we found her and have nothing but good things to say about her group.

As an educational diagnostician, I was concerned when my two year old daughter was not achieving appropriate language benchmarks. The Speech and Language Connection was recommended to me by my pediatrician and I have been very impressed with the progress my daughter has made in the three months she has been in therapy. Having worked with many speech therapists in my profession, I am confident with the professionalism and level of expertise. In addition, my daughter loves it! She enjoys seeing Ms. Faith, and runs to her office each time the door opens. I would recommend the Speech and Language Connection to anyone who asks.

We are so happy to have found The Speech and Language Connection and our speech therapist Hayley in Katy! All of the staff is so friendly and it's definitely apparent how much everyone loves what they do. The therapist, Faith, who did our initial evaluation is also amazing. My daughter has a bit of anxiety and Faith was so patient and kind and the evaluation went so smoothly and was very thorough. Finally, the receptionist/scheduler, Marianne, is such a pleasure to deal with. She made everything so easy for us and is lovely to deal with. Thank you!!!

When my daughter first started speech therapy with Kristen, she didn't say anything but "dada" at 20 months old. A year later, she now speaks in full sentences. Kristen doesn't make you feel like "just a number." She truly makes you feel at home. It's obvious that Kristen loves her job. This place makes you feel like a family. It has great communication skills and really tries to be as flexible as possible. I'd recommend The Speech and Language Connection to anybody. I'd insist they try to get Kristen as their speech therapist. She rocks!

William has come so far in just a few months since he has been seeing Ms. Faith. He has so much more confidence in himself and tries new words everyday. His vocabulary has more than tripled since he started working with her. He looks forward to his speech sessions with her because she makes it so fun for him. Ms. Faith is so kind and has amazing patience. She keeps the sessions a very fun, positive, and loving experience, and we couldn't be happier with her. We are so proud and thrilled that he has come so far in his speech. Thank you Ms. Faith!

Our son's speech improvement in 6 months has been absolutely amazing! He started with stuttering words and a virtually unrecognizable speech that was very frustrating for him and those trying to communicate with him. Kristie Gatto's ability to improve his speech in a few short months and to such a significant level has been extremely impressive. Our son was completely engaged each session due to Kristie's mixture of games, exercises, and methods, which were carefully tailored to his personality and character. Most importantly, our son enjoys his time with Krisitie and is excited to see her every week. The last six months at the Speech and Language Connection will undoubtedly make a lifetime of difference in our son's life.

Our son, Finn, is autistic and has been coming to the Speech and Language Connection for about a year and a half. He has actually worked with three different therapists there, depending on his needs and we have loved all of them. All of the therapists, and especially our current one, Shelli, have interacted wonderfully with Finn. They have also discussed with us what we would like to accomplish and work on with Finn each week. He really has come a long way since we have started. The biggest testament I feel though, is when Finn actually started to request going to speech especially since it can be very difficult to get him to communicate. Every time we finish a session with Shelli, he never fails to yell out in the parking lot, "I had so much fun at speech!"

Our daughter started speech with Melinda 9 months ago. She did not have many words and it was hard for us to understand her. For the past months that she has been in therapy, she has gained more vocabulary and we can communicate better with her. Her slow but steady progress makes us very happy. We are very grateful to Melinda for her help, love, and teachings to our daughter. In addition, we are grateful to her for the materials she shares with us so that we can continue to reinforce the things she works in therapy at home.
