Gratitude from parents of clients

This “goodbye” could be sad, but how could I be sad watching where my son is now and where he was? You have been there since the beginning of our journey. I am so incredibly grateful for your dedication, passion, creativity, and above all-love towards M is something I will cherish forever. M has achieved so many goals in the past 4 years because of you. Thank you for always believing in M and all the great things he would accomplish. Because of you, M is now able to confidently have a conversation-something I only dreamed about before. There are no words to express my gratitude. You’re one of M’s angels. A true blessing that I thank God for all of the time. Thank you for teaching me and giving me great advice when I needed it the most. You have been by our side in the most challenging times and you somehow always knew what to say and how to handle our situation. Today I thank you for believing in M. Thank you for being part of our lives the last 4 years when we needed you the most. You will be truly missed!

It is with sadness that we say goodbye to the last member of our “A Team” and to one of A’s favorite therapists. Even though she is not able to express it, we know when we see how her face lights up with a huge smile when she sees you. We also know in our hearts that she will miss you. It has been a long journey since our first days, it wasn’t easy for all of us, but you were very patient and gave us the support our family needed and helped A get to where she is now. Thank you for caring, and thank you for working with A with your heart. It makes a huge difference, and our family will forever be grateful to you.

From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to say thank you. Thank you for always taking care of us and helping us. Thank you for giving our son a voice where there was none before. For giving us a better tomorrow. Thank you for getting to know us and helping us fight the good fight. For your dedication and persistence. For helping us get what we needed and build a good foundation for our son.

No words on a card can thank you enough for helping my girl talk more-it is a precious gift. I’m so lucky J got to work with you on a daily basis! Thank you for being such a kind and loving person to J and me! You are amazing and I will use the strategies you gave me and try to remember everything I learned. Sometimes I wish she could stay with you, but I am ready and confident she is set up for the big school now.

Thank you for the love and support that you have shared and given to L. Her speech and communication development has been hard work and we see the rewards of your dedication. Or is it more that we hear it? It is hard to think that we will not see you. You have become a consistent and positive influence in L’s life. We look forward to her therapies knowing she has a bond with you. We cherish that. Thank you for everything because she is more confident. It flows in her personality and her academic accomplishments.

Danielle has had the biggest impact on our lives. I wanted to tell you how amazing she is. I know you already know, but from our families eyes. [She] is an incredible human being and the best speech therapist. She started seeing M when he was 2 years old and now he is 5 ½. Lucky us, to have been able to stay with her for years. Danielle’s dedication to M is priceless to me. She not only has kept him engaged and worked with his behaviors, but also has always believed in him. She is very dedicated to following through with his program and also helping me to help him. Which has been huge. My husband and I couldn’t have done it without her. She kept me going on some very hard days. Watching her work with M made me strong and believe M will get there. And today, I am proud to say M is a talkative 5 year old. We have wonderful conversations every day. My husband and I are forever grateful for Danielle’s dedication to M. Thank you Danielle for having the biggest heart and being a loving dedicated speech therapist!

I will never look at a pop tart and not think of you! Thank you. You’ll never know the gratitude or admiration we have for you. J is a changed child and you are one of the few that helped to teach him how. We will always be the lucky ones. Words can never be enough and I can’t wait until the day you can listen to him tell you himself.
