What People Are Saying

“My experience with Our Children First has been great. Everyone knows my son and they’re very pleasant and understanding. I would not trade my son’s speech therapist for anything in the world. My son loves her very much.”

“She [our therapist] has different methods to help my daughter’s speech- drawing, reading, puzzles, play dough, games such as playing cards, etc. She gives Vanessa homework such as stories that she can tell us at home and lettered blocks so she can practice everyday.”

“Having a speech therapist come to the home was great. So having to bring my daughter to a center, I had my reservations. But the staff here is great. From Lorna to Michelle, they are professional and treat you as a person and not a number. Each person here is attentive and pleasure to work with.”

“In the time I have been coming here I have noticed a difference in my 3 year old daughter’s speech and behavior. My daughter was diagnosed with Dyspraxia at 18 months. her words were few and sometimes not understandable. I’m happy to say that now my little girl can put sentences together, as and answer questions, count in English and Spanish. A few words I don’t understand; but [she] is getting there with the help of Carla Tellez and the wonderful staff at Our Children First.”
