"Our 4 year old daughter has a genetic condition which causes developmental delays and she’s also been diagnosed with autism. She is not speaking yet, and so the speech therapy and hippotherapy treatments we’ve arranged are focused on providing our daughter new ways to communicate and to let us know what she needs.
I especially like the way Heidii works one-on-one with my daughter. Heidii is flexible in the treatment modalities she uses—shifting easily to match the response of our daughter to make the most of each speech and communication session. Whether our 4-year old daughter is receiving speech therapy in Heidii’s fun and very comfortable office, or sitting on a horse for her hippotherapy sessions, Heidii totally devotes her skills to the progress of our child.
Heidii is that rare medical specialist who has built up around her a trusted, exceptional and highly skilled community of specialists. She has one mission: maximum therapy progress for the kids she sees. It appears from our experience that these other professionals really respect Heidii and love coordinating care with her. Heidii is very warm, very funny and we always have a good laugh when we work with her. And yet, she’s super professional and always keeps the therapy sessions moving and on task.
Our daughter has seen Heidii for speech therapy & hippotherapy for the past 7 months. Our daughter is now able to verbalize things that we have not heard before, like consonant sounds. She is also stabilizing her signing and Heidii has taught her how to sign the word ‘please’ – which she now uses liberally and gets VERY positive response!"- April
