Why Choose Us
As an SLP-mom of two little boys, the last thing I expected was having a child with a speech and language delay. When my younger son was around 18 months old, he seemed to be on the right track. But, for some reason between 18-24 months, his language did not expand or grow and he was becoming more and more frustrated every day having difficulty communicating.
Or pediatrician told me to give him time, that he was fine, and my husband did not seem worried. But I knew he needed more help. So, I had him evaluated through TCRC and sure enough, he qualified.
My next fear was, who will his therapist be? I needed someone good. Someone who would be firm, yet loving and really push him to use his words, because I knew he was capable. Susan Neigher was that person. She not only helped my son make tremendous gains over the 10 months she worked with him, she truly cared about him and his well being. She always kept me informed and let me know how his sessions were going. I knew I could count on her.
Fast forward to now, he is speaking in sentences and has more confidence in himself. Do I still worry about him? Absolutely. Is he completely caught up to an age appropriate level? Not yet, but he is getting there. I am so grateful that Susan was there to help him along this journey. She built a level of comfort and trust with my son that he needed in order to be successful. She is truly a gem and we already miss her!
I just wanted to express to you, as I'm sure you already know, that she is wonderful!
It is with great pleasure to give my highest regard and appreciation to SLEA. There has been a major improvement in our son’s academic challenges, which have become an academic triumphant. The SLEA continued dedication to our son has prepared them for the next phase of their academic and social environment.

Since day one, as parents, we acknowledged the fact that our son was falling behind in some areas, according to the standards and it is with huge excitement that I would like to share with you some improvements we have noticed ourselves that are yet not reflected on your progress report. We are beyond happy to see a little improvement every week.
