"My son at 20 months wasn't speaking and I knew something was wrong. I knew he needed speech therapy. I did some research and found Shelby. From the moment I entered Shelby's office and met with her I knew she was the right person. From her warm smile, concern and appropriate plan of care for my son I knew he was in the right hands. My son has progressed so much and I attribute his success to her. She has been on top of him every moment and has given me the skills to help him at home. Shelby is a true professional and very well educated in speech therapy. Her knowledge base is outstanding and her approach with my son has been terrific. We are truly blessed to of found her."

"My son started working with Shelby when he was 3 1/2 years old. At that point, he barely spoke more than a couple of words. Shelby immediately came up with a successful therapy and treatment plan that he enjoyed and was easy to implement at home. Now, two years later, he barely stops talking for a minute. His work with her has been invaluable! We love working with Shelby and are so appreciative of everything she has done. We know that our son is getting the best speech and language therapy in a loving environment."
