Our children are doing so well. It still
amazes us. When we watch them at the
playground or at gymnastics, we still
can't get over it. Can you believe they are
in kindergarten! Our daughter is taking
ballet now and she even speaks in class.
We can understand our son and so can
his friends.

The therapists from Achieving Milestones
worked with us with compassion, skill
and caring, and, within a year, our
daughter was talking nonstop, climbing
the rock wall at the playground and
“graduating” from therapy. When we
realized that our younger son needed
speech therapy, we happily reached out
to the team at Achieving Milestones,
knowing that we are in the best of hands
with this agency, which always puts the
family first.
