TESTIMONIAL

“Sasha was very helpful to my daughter Chasya. She provided pragmatic language therapy in an encouraging and non-judgmental way. Chasya looked forward to her sessions and was able to apply what she learned in real life situations. Aleksandra really made Chasya feel comfortable and enabled her to learn and grow in her own way.”
