It has been a gift to have Elizabeth help my son, who was diagnosed with a speech and language delay at the age of 3. First thing I noticed was she actually spent time understanding my rambunctious, somewhat wild and joyful boy. She learned his happiness revolves around cars, wheels and anything moving- especially himself! Within sessions I could see how Elizabeth was tailoring their time together so Mason could be the most successful. She implemented motivators and breaks that kept him focused and engaged. Not only was he improving in his articulation and language but he was ENJOYING it! His progression was remarkable
It is a privilege to offer a recommendation on behalf of Elizabeth Robinette. She has been working with my son Nathan for 2 years. Her speech pathology expertise mixed with her Orton Gillingham training is a perfect mix for treating the whole child that has a speech/language disorder. She has been wonderful with Nathan and they are truly buddies. I appreciate her persistence when something doesn’t seem to click for Nathan, and she quickly finds another way to meet his needs. She is able to encourage him and always find the good in what he has learned. I am very grateful for her influence and advice as we all assist Nathan to become his very best.
I have had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth both as a parent and as a teacher.
She worked with my daughter, who had hearing loss, to correct her articulation of several sounds.
Elizabeth was not only professional, but she was nurturing and took the time to get to know my daughter and tailored their work to her interests and abilities. As a teacher, I know this kind of dedication takes work but forming a relationship with your students is crucial to success. My daughter looked forward to her sessions and enjoyed her time with Elizabeth. As a result, she worked hard and made great progress.
After a year with Elizabeth, my daughter’s speech had improved. Not only did she sound better, but she could explain what she was doing differently. Therefore, when she later got an expander and braces, she was able to adjust her speech to compensate.
For the past two years, Elizabeth has also worked with several students in my class. She showed the same professionalism and dedication with them as she did with my daughter. I was able to see what the students worked on each week and reinforce those concepts in their school work. Elizabeth and I spoke frequently to strategize about these students in order to help them make as much progress as possible.
It is my sincere pleasure and good fortune to know and work with Elizabeth Robinette and I highly recommend her services!
