Our five and a half year-old daughter Adeline has been working with Deborah for almost two years. During this time, she was diagnosed with an extremely rare genetic disorder that effects her speech. When she first came to Deborah, Adie was speaking in one word utterances that were difficult for people other than her family to understand. Currently two years later, Adie says 4-5 word sentences that her friends, teachers and people at the grocery store smile at and respond. Her advances in speech have far exceeded our expectations and Deborah’s dedication is an enormous reason for Adie’s development. But more than her work weekly with Adie, Deborah has become a team member and active advocate for Adie’s developmental progress. She’s more than her speech therapist; she’s a member of our team that fights to make Adie the best she can be!
