"After our son was first diagnosed with autism, we were overwhelmed and lost. Then we found Laura. Every day, we are faced with new questions that we don't have the answers to. Laura always has the answers. She knows exactly what we need to hear. She knows exactly what our son needs to hear. Laura allows for our home life to be possible and manageable. Parenting a child with autism can be a paralyzing and isolating task. One of our most trying tasks is creating a school environment that is conducive to our son's needs. We would not be able to do any of this without Laura and her expertise. She has been a life changer ... A lifesaver."
"Not only did my son look forward to Laura's visit each week, Laura was able to explain her teaching methods, our son's progress and how we could best support his learning and her teachings in a completely understandable and approachable way. Laura was very communicative with us as parents and she genuinely cared about our son. Almost right away, we had the utmost confidence that our son was getting the help he needed to correct his speech."
"My 6 year old daughter has been attending speech through Vermont SLP. She was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and her psychologist recommended speech to work on her social skills. Laura provides specific skills to work on within the home setting on a weekly basis which has been extremely helpful.
Laura’s ability to connect with our daughter was amazing. She has a great sense of humor, is caring, and also provides amazing structure. My daughter always looks forward to working with Laura on a weekly basis. Her ability to communicate with us, our daughter’s school, and her other providers has also been incredible."
"Laura has been an amazing provider for our daughter. Our entire family has seen significant improvement in our daughter’s social cognition and skills within our home environment, community, and school setting. We are very fortunate to have found Vermont SLP."
