We’re continuing with our affiliate highlight series, this time turning our eye to Word of Mouth in New York, New York.
What Makes Word of Mouth Unique?
I provide each client with a personalized care packet containing individual strategies and exercises as well as helpful information for the family and caregivers.
Great Success Stories
One of my favorite success stories involves a 68-year-old female diagnosed with Primary Progressive Aphasia. Her husband and sons were very concerned that they would never have a conversation with their wife/mother again. There was little communication, and the client felt isolated and discouraged.
I created a communication book filled with functional phrases, utilized phonemic cues and incorporated her husband and sons into her therapy. With consistent therapy and everyone working together, the client was soon able to enjoy going out to dinner with her family, who reported back to me that she even ordered herself a glass of wine!
They Love What They Do
I am a “people” person, and I most enjoy that I can enter and help improve people’s lives. Also, I love giving people hope by helping them regain their ability to communicate. Moveover, I strive to empower the people I work with.
Services and Support Groups
I offer speech therapy for adults who are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury and cognitive impairments. I am in the process of creating a support group for caregivers. The therapy I offer is highly personalized and compassionate and includes family members as well as caregivers.
Special Services for Caregivers
I believe that supportive caregivers have a tremendous impact on a client’s progress. Therefore, I work very closely with caregivers and family to promote the best outcome for my clients.
