Testimonial:

We have known Teresa for three years now. We first met her when she helped my son, then two years old, with his speech. He was extremely shy and would just sit there, staring at her. Miss Teresa was extremely patient with him and never pushed him. She let him come out of his shell in his own time. My son warmed up shortly and looked forward to her weekly visits. She gives them options as to what they want to play, so they are an active part of the therapy session. We were so happy with how well he did, we enlisted her for our youngest daughter once she turned two. My daughter is very strong willed and Teresa does wonderful with her as well. She knows how to keep her attention and curb a possible tantrum, or distract her if she gets upset. My daughter also loves the weekly sessions and runs to the door when I tell her Miss Teresa is here. I highly recommend Raleigh Therapy Services and Teresa!
