Best Place to take your toddlers we have twins boys with ASD and they are working on Speech with Ms Palwasha and Ms Allison. Our journey started back in October November we went in to see the place and let our twins see it before making it their location for speech . They loved it since day one They feel so comfortable they started as one nonverbal twin and other twin with less than 20 words. Now they tact and mand so much that I lost count. They can identify object makes sounds count 1-20 whole ABCs in English and Spanish aswell as colors animals. We love Language Essentials they make us feel like we are family This place is a true blessing The staff is truly so amazing and are always so sweet and understanding when I have to move a session around I can count on Sarah and Laura the receptionist they are so organized and fast. Thank you LEOne thing I would recommend for parents is communicate with the team because it really is a team effort I always ask their TherapistsTeacher to give me some homework and ideas. And even sit in the last minutes of session to get some tactics for home. Always ask questions no question is a dumb question. Mrs Palwasha and Ms Allison are always so nice and sweet and always give feed back.

From the very beginning the staff at Language Essentials have been organized responsive and professional. My daughter works with Paula Dumitriu for articulation and we feel so very extremely fortunate to have found her. My daughter has made more progress with Paula in a few months than she has in a few years elsewhere. Her techniques and home exercises are so effective that my daughters self-esteem has skyrocketed Priceless right Not only is Paula a phenomenal speech therapist she is so kind and warm. Many thanks to Paula and Language Essentials

I cannot express enough how fortunate we are to have Mrs. Pawasha as our sons speech teacher. Her dedication and compassion are truly extraordinary. From the very beginning it was evident that she genuinely cares about our sons progress and well-being.Mrs. Pawashas teaching style is not only effective but also incredibly patient and understanding. She has created a warm and nurturing environment where our son feels comfortable and motivated to learn.Whats even more remarkable is that her caring nature extends throughout the entire office. The entire team has been incredibly supportive and encouraging making our journey a collective effort.Thanks to Mrs. Pawasha and language essentials team our son has made remarkable progress in his speech development. We are immensely grateful for their expertise and the positive impact theyve had on our childs life. We couldnt have asked for a better speech teacher and support system. Thank you

My younger son had phonetic problems with a few sounds.He has been getting a therapy with Ms.Palwasha since January.His speech is getting better and gaining social confidence at school. My boy was easily distracted so I was worried at the first time. But Ms.Palwasha has been very patient and helpful for my son. Also she knows how to work with young kids too.Thank you so much for helping us

I definitely feel this is the best in town. Miss Palwasha was very helpful as my daughter was not able to produce k and g sounds .And after some days of practicing with Palwasha she was able to produce those sounds .I really appreciate her and also the supervisor of language essentials .She was there for help in most of the classes.I really like how they help each and every child with the therapy and I would definitely recommend to the people who are looking for best therapy in town.I would genuinely feel good if my review will help other parents to choose language essentials for speech therapy .
