Richard, Parent

Amanda's skill as a therapist and her ability to connect with our son have been key to his success.

 

I'm so grateful for her dedication and highly recommend her services to any parent looking for effective, convenient, and compassionate speech therapy for their child. Thank you, Amanda and communiCAN, for making such a positive impact on our lives!

Kiah, Parent

We started speech therapy through a very popular clinic starting at 18 months. My son never really babbled or made any vocalizations. After nearly 4-5 months of zero progress and ineffective play therapy we switched to Amanda and it was the single greatest choice I have made for my son. 

 

Amanda took the time to get to know him and build a connection with him. She worked on practicing tongue and mouth positioning so he could start successfully making letter sounds.

 

I loved how individualized Amanda’s sessions were and she would always gives us tasks and tips to get us involved and be able to work with him between sessions. After every session she would give us a detailed report of what they worked on and how he did. She also gave us quarterly reviews of the goals we had set and would adjust the goals each quarter as he met them.

I will be forever grateful for Amanda and her time with my son. At 3 now he is no longer delayed in speech or language.

Wish we would of found Amanda sooner! My wife and I have seen drastic results in our child's speech.  Amanda is highly motivated and makes your child have fun while learning! We are extremely happy with the results and so is our little one.

“Amanda started working with our son when he was about two and a half. At the time, he only had about four words total and very few sounds. After only six months, he’s expanded his vocabulary immensely and has gained so many new sounds such as p, d, m, b, and more. Amanda is extremely patient and kind and has formed such a wonderful connection with our son (he waits at the window for her when he knows it’s speech time!). Her knowledge and skills are extremely evident in her practice. She has provided us with simple and effective strategies to do at home to help enhance our son’s speech as well. She is always willing to provide resources and support as needed. Amanda has been such an integral part in our son’s speech growth this year and I truly can’t recommend her enough-she’s amazing!”

"We were blessed to meet Amanda when our daughter Brynn was only 3 years old. She has helped her go from a little girl with minimal, garbled speech to the chatty little 5-year-old girl we know today! She has a phenomenal rapport with Brynn and is able to get Brynn to engage in her entire session through a phenomenally effective in-home, play-based learning style. We couldn't recommend her enough!"

"My son like many since the beginning of the pandemic was experiencing a speech delay. It was clear that he understood what was being asked of him, but he was becoming increasingly frustrated not being understood. After his third birthday I knew that there was a need to find help. My family moved from Tennessee to Arizona, and I was concerned what providers would be like here. As a mental health therapist and Certified Autism Specialist I have high standards for providers.

When I found Amanda, I knew I was in the right place.

 

Not only is she extremely knowledgeable but she comes to your HOME!

 

As a working mother I cannot express how helpful that was for me. I was able to work, and my child still received world class services. My son’s speech has grown exponentially since beginning with Amanda. She has such a unique approach and takes each child’s needs into consideration and creates a tailored program for them. Without Amanda I know my son would not be able to tell me he is hungry or call for me. One of the best gifts I have ever been given in my life has been my son to say, “Mommy me hungry.” I cannot think Amanda enough for what she has done for my family."
