My husband and I took our 8 year old son to Schneider Speech Pathology to help with his stuttering. Becca quickly got to know us, and our son. She immediately began to teach all of us techniques to assist my son when he stutters, helping him to speak with more fluency. Becca creates a comfortable and warm environment, and we all look forward to our meetings.
Our son has overcome a very difficult hurdle and is making tremendous progress.”
