Group Therapy Testimonials
First of all, thanks to Michelle and Laura for putting the auditory training group together. This wasn’t something I knew existed before I got the email telling people about it. I have been partially deaf for most of my life (about 27 years and I’m now 32). I grew up in a fully hearing family, and I was taken to an ENT periodically but was never given extra support growing up or really sought out resources for dealing with my hearing loss (aside from hearing aids) as an adult until a few months ago.
I have mostly gone through life thinking I just had to try harder to hear better and that I should just be able to do it naturally. It is also pretty validating to see that it does take more effort to hear when you have hearing loss as I can find it exhausting to communicate with people in person sometimes!
I liked the format of the group. Being able to log in virtually made it accessible to me since I didn’t have to worry about missing any work. I liked that each session had a different theme with different tips. I definitely learned some new things.
Great speech therapists; they are very friendly, knowledgeable and supportive. The sessions are fun (both speech and social skills!). Ms Melissa is very energetic, positive and happy person that is why my son loves to come to social skills session as he can interact with his new friends plus at the same time learn important skills in a fun way! We love this place!
The social communication summer program is a good program. My son enjoys the sessions.
Our son has taken speech therapy with Mrs. Melissa since he was just over 3 years old and for the last year he’s been in her social skills class. Today he “Graduated” and while we will miss Mrs. Melissa (and the staff), we are so proud of how far he’s come. Mrs.Melissa has been nothing short of phenomenal. She worked along with our son’s school speech teacher to make sure he was getting the best most effective lesson’s to help him along. The last year has taught him how to socialize and express himself to better communicate and interact with others and has really helped him “open up” and be a better boy. The staff always made us feel welcomed and will never hesitate to recommend Speech and Hearing to any of our Family or Friends! Thank You!!
SHA is phenomenal!! We could not wish for more, highly skilled, loving, compassionate therapists.
I’m not surprised Melissa was nominated at a 2018 New Jersey Kids’ Favorite Doc! Easy choice as far as we’re concerned!!! Melissa has been nothing less than spectacular with our son both in his speech and social skills! Thank You Melissa!!!! Congratulations!
