“In the last 1 1/2 years, Andrea has helped our son with severe apraxia progress from making no purposeful verbalizations to saying intentional sounds and some intelligible words. Andrea has systematically targeted the speech intervention that he needs, and at the same time has given me the tools for working with him to keep him progressing through the week. She has been flexible in trying a different approach when progress slows. She was a valuable resource for us in setting up and using an AAC app with our son. Although our son is ten years old and has profound delays due to his syndrome, Andrea always remains positive and is determined to keep expecting more from him. Her approach is both personal and professional. “
