"Austin was two and three months when we came to Let's Talk in 2002. He had been evaluated several times and no one was sure about the diagnosis. Maybe mild autism or verbal apraxia, whatever it was, all that mattered to us that he received the help he needed and Tracy Vail and Tanya McDowell provided us the guidance we desired and the services Austin needed. From maybe a 10 word vocabulary to now in 2006, Austin is thriving in the regular second grade classroom. Over the years Austin has seen several of the therapists at Let's Talk and has responded wonderful to all of them because Tanya and Tracy are great at what they do and have a wonderful staff of therapists. You receive great feedback and yes homework but also progress reports to help with coordinating therapy once they enter school. My life has been blessed since we came to Let's Talk and they will never be forgotten because Austin is who he is and where he is today because of all their hard work and determination. Words are not enough to express our sincere gratitude for them and Austin will always have a special place in his heart for them."
