“My favorite thing about being an SLP is empowering kids to find their confidence. The kids that we see are here to work on something that is usually very hard for them, so it is incredibly important to approach them in a way that makes them feel successful. It is my hope that at the end of every session, a child can feel that they worked hard and can leave feeling good about their efforts.” ~Danielle
