Teacher and Student
"I advise you to get on Jenny's schedule and stay there. You will find no other SLP who is this qualified, this dedicated, this willing, this kind. Not only do you get a therapist for your child, but you also get a person who is willing to educate YOU the parent on how to best help them. She will impart wisdom and knowledge she learned through her education and experience, instead of assuming it's over your head or not for you to know. We gained a friend and advocate." 
- Parent

"Jenny was so kind, calm, and patient. She understood the energy and attention our child needed. She let our child direct what activities they would do, yet it was obvious she always had a plan."
