Testimonials

"I am a physician and extremely thorough and careful in everything that I do with my patients. I do not always find the same in other clinicians. My biggest worry was in finding the kind of speech therapist for my 4 year old daughter that I felt was doing the type of careful and thorough work on every level-connecting with my daughter/building a relationship, diagnosis, therapy, and feedback- that I felt happy with. I have been extremely happy with Dana Stewart's work in all of these areas of therapy. My daughter actually loves going to therapy and is making very nice progress. She practices making certain sounds at home totally unprompted so the lessons are definitely sinking in."

"One of my biggest worries before starting services was that my son would not want to participate or that it would be a battle to go to the sessions. That never came to fruition because of the outstanding one-on-one attention [my son] gets. While he works hard each session, it is done in a fun manner. He actually enjoys it!"

"It's hard to pick just one part of the therapy that is my favorite. There are so many things! One aspect that I love is that not only is there lots of strategy practice, but there is a huge focus on the many emotional aspects of being a person that stutters. I cannot say enough how much I appreciate the many discussions about how to cope with the day-to-day challenges that my son may encounter."

"She is dedicated, accommodating with her schedule, and great at interacting with kids. Our daughter longingly asks if she's coming on her days off. She thinks of her as a friend, and that shows trust. "

"I called a number of speech therapists around town and asked them who they would see for a fluency issue. They all said Dana Stewart. I wasn't even sure that my daughter had a fluency issue but I thought that if Dana Stewart was everyone's choice for the best fluency subspecialist, then she was likely to be really good at everything."

"Getting plugged into [local and national stuttering resources] was great help. I think it made [our son] feel that he was not the only one with this struggle and that he can be successful in anything he wants to do from a career perspective. In addition, him going through the process of further developing his social skills is a very practical and very crucial skill set that he needed."
