Testimonials

Everyone at ABC has been wonderful to work with. I love the extra homework that is sent with my daughter that targets the goals that therapist works on during her sessions. My daughter has made a significant amount of progress in just a few short months. It is great to get a carbon copy of my daughter’s progress notes each week. I would highly recommend ABC to any family in need of S/L therapy! - Parent
