I feel so blessed to go to work each day and to be a part of helping my clients grow and learn. Hearing some of my clients say their first words is one of the most rewarding moments in the work we do. I am so thankful for the commitment of each individual within the child’s family and clinical team because each of them is helping the child to improve his or her quality of life.
