Telehealth has truly provided my 19 month old great help on learning new words. She started with maybe 1 or 2 words and now she has 8-9 mastered words and a few others she is starting to say! Telehealth has provided wonderful strategies for me to use at home, while having her therapist also be able to provide me feedback and also see my daughter in her home environment. If we didn’t have telehealth with TheraTree we would not have the progress that we have today!
I just wanted you to know that I am noticing my child is using the techniques you are teaching him for fluency and they are helping. I asked him if he thought ST was helping and he said YES! He said just what he has learned after 2 sessions has helped a bunch! He said he had been able to get through a few of the phone calls at work that previously he had not been able to do due to the stuttering. Thank you so much!
I personally want to say how thankful I am for the speech therapy that my son Ledger Nix has been receiving before and during the Covid-19 outbreak. Ledger is only 3 and I was concerned about his speech once he started to try to speak and I as well as others couldn’t necessarily understand him. He would get frustrated because he was trying so hard and knew what he was trying to say and we couldn’t decipher most of it. He rocked it immediately and it’s because of Mrs. Toni’s patience and willingness to listen to my concerns. For only going 30 minutes a week, Ledger really picked up fast In my opinion.
When the office was closed down I was nervous at first about how the telehealth was going to work for him because of him being 3 and around his things to play with. I was afraid he wouldn’t give his full attention and there have been times he hasn’t, but I feel he’s doing a lot better with his attention span and he focuses during the session because of his teacher!!! I feel he has grown even more now. He has hit several milestones and he tries super hard to master a word or sound. I am beyond grateful for this opportunity to improve my child’s speech with the help of Mrs. Toni and TheraTree.
Thanks Again from the Nix family.
Being a homeschool mom comes with abundant joy! It can also include considerable challenges, especially when your children face delays and hardships. For most of our first grade year my twins struggled in many areas of learning, focus, and development. Most of our days were long and often not without tears. Sometimes even Mom had tears. I knew in my heart that I had been lead to homeschool. I also knew I would never give up. I believe this is the only option for our family.
I met Dale Lynn in 1999. He has worked with 2 of my boys. Currently working with my son Aaron and has since he was a toddler. Aaron is 10 now. Such a great impact has been made in Aaron's life from what he has learned through therapy with Mr. Dale. Aaron was able to receive an Ambucs trike and there was never a hesitation of it being approved for his use through his OT. Dale went beyond his therapy and assembled the trike for Aaron, sent pictures while he was assembling it and also delivered it to our home. I believe any therapist that works at Lynn Occupational Therapy truly does it for the love of children. Your child will never be a number but, loved and helped. Parents will get great input and any support they can help you with. Aaron has been introduced to many calming and coping techniques. Sensory, vestibular, gravitational insecurity help, fine motor, (love brush therapy) thanks for teaching that and joint compression techniques writing,sensory room,etc...I could go on and on because he is so special for my son and our family and to other families. Thanks Dale Lynn for loving and helping children.
My daughter started working with Dale over three years ago because I was concerned about her ADHD and fine motor skills. He tested her and began working with her while she was in Head Start. Soon after, Candi took his place and my daughter loves her. They do puzzles, color, games, paint, cut, shoe tying and much more. Not only are fine motor skills being worked on, but her attention skills are too. I am able to call her OT for any concerns or problems that I may have. An example was when I was concerned about her sensory problems so a sensory profile was done on her. They helped my daughter get over most of her sensory disorders by showing me techniques to work with her on and they gave me a sensory brush to use on her body. I am very pleased with this company. She feels welcome and the therapist are always positive with the children and the parents. Thank you for all you do for Samantha, we love this company.
What a HUGE success this week has been with OT! Gannon met not one, not two, but THREE goals! He continues to work hard everyday and today he showed exactly what he is capable of. I am so proud of him! It is truly a blessing to see just how far he has come.
I can not thank Shante enough for stepping in and through telehealth continuing his care with so much love and support. I am grateful for these sessions and all the hard work you put into this. Telehealth has allowed me to be even more hands on, to ask questions, to learn new techniques, and to continue teaching new skills at home.
These circumstances are not easy. It is because of OT’s like Shante, ALL of the staff at Theratree, and the dedication of parents/caregivers that these children, like mine, will succeed.
Keep up the great work and stay safe,
April and Gannon.
Our daughter has improved so much with understanding and regulating her emotions and knowing when she's approaching sensory overload. She knows her triggers and can tell us when she needs a break. As a family, we have learned so many tools to help her! OT has greatly improved her struggles with sensory processing disorder.
