WHAT THEY ARE SAYING
Here is what people are saying about Lumina

05/02/2016,

....Our child, as all children do, presented a unique medical history and need for Speech and Language therapy. The therapist researched all background information and also researched the related body of literature specific to our child's needs, consulting with us as a family to support our understanding of the specific strategies and goals which would best serve our child....

....We became very involved as a family in the therapy process and this carryover across settings of my child's speech goals was extremely effective and resulted in a steady rate of progress and ultimately a child who became a confident communicator with significantly increased speech intelligibility.

....Our Therapist also shared her data collection and changed strategies to include intensive work when appropriate and also when appropriate, introduced peers into the therapy setting to support communicative confidence !!....

....She also believed strongly in sensory rich experiences and hands on projects during therapy to support a child's motivation and recall of motor speech patterns and Language structures
which we found to be unique and highly effective....

....For example, her Language Groups for preschool and High school included projects which were of high interest to the patients, such as demonstrations and participation with Ballerina's, Science Experiments, Art Experiences during the group speech sessions to name a few....

....Our Therapist had also been a clinical instructor, supervising other SLPs and Interns, implementing them successfully into speech sessions and making sure that they did, provide ongoing parent information sessions with detailed explanation of goals and strategies and the child's needs driving the plan of treatment....

....We would highly recommend her as a provider of Speech and Language Service as a private practitioner. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding our reference!....
just ask the Director of Lumina Speech and Hearing Services for my email address and I will be glad to verify this reference....

Sincerely,
Mrs. S and Mr. L. P.

....To Whom It May Concern, I am honored to write this letter on behalf of our Therapist at Lumina Speech and Hearing Services. My son was a student of hers for many years. He was diagnosed with profound bilateral hearing loss at the age of 9 months. He is currently eighteen years old and he received a cochlear implant in his right ear at 2 years of age. Our Therapist had worked with our child in our home prior to receiving the cochlear implant and she continued with him throughout grade school. She helped our son to get accustomed to his hearing aids, which he received prior to the implant, when she worked with him in our home. She also showed my husband and I how to increase his wear time, attend to auditory information/sound localization and sound identification within our environment....

....Then our son also attended a preschool program for early literacy and concept development where she was his therapist and teacher of the hearing impaired. Our son was in this program for three years, where she held various parent workshops and provided an abundance of language experiences for her students....

....She provided him with instruction in the following areas: concept development/vocal pattern perception of longer vs. shorter phrases; auditory identification of speech sounds/speech sound production; and early literacy – heavy phonemic awareness/sound to letter correspondence....

....Our Therapist provided speech and hearing instruction to our son while attending grade school. She would take the curricular content provided by his regular education teacher and help him with comprehension of the material. She provided instruction on verbal expression, language, and vocabulary as well. I believe this intensive instruction in preschool and grade school provided our son with a solid basis for phonics which, in turn, has contributed to his accomplishments throughout his educational career....

....My husband and I were very pleased with our therapists professionalism, her dedication, motivation and, above all, the way she cared about our son’s academic success....

....Our son, who is now a senior in high school, credits many of his accomplishments to our therapist, and her intensive instruction. He has recently been accepted to Penn State University and California University of Pennsylvania. He has yet to decide which university he would like to attend; however, he is adamant about starting classes in the fall....

....I would like to offer an unreserved recommendation of our therapists performance. In my opinion, her teaching methods and strategies are designed and executed for high end learning results....

Sincerely,
S M. D. M.Ed.

....Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing this letter of recommendation for our therapist, now at Lumina Speech and Hearing Services, without reservation based on the outstanding Speech and Language therapy services she provided to our daughte, at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, Speech and Language Pathology Department....

....Our daughter is on the Autism spectrum and, as typical with people with this disorder, speech and language development is delayed-but that didn’t stop or hinder our therapist’s persistence with helping our daughter. Our Therapist was patient, kind, fun and an overall blessing to our family....

....Our therapist welcomed all of us into her bi-weekly sessions with a smile on her face and a fun game or activity that she knew our daughter would personally enjoy....

....Our little girl has been receiving speech services since she was 20 months old, and when she went to this new therapist at the age of 4, and after being with other therapists along the way, my husband and I knew immediately we hit the jackpot with our new SLP, now with Lumina Speech and Hearing Services....

....As we were going through the initial testing and diagnostic measures to get started, it was evident that our new SLP was a team player with us as parents. She listened to our concerns and made every accommodation we suggested to help her get a full understanding and scope of our daughter’s needs; she put our daughter’s needs ahead of what protocol we anticipated, which was someone telling us and our little girl what to do. She was willing to let us give some of the testing material in front of a 2 way mirror as we knew of our daughter’s shyness and probable non-compliance with someone she had never met. This was an invaluable gesture as we knew our daughter was going to get exactly what she needed because this speech therapist took the time to get to know her first....

....During the year or so our daughter received services from the therapist who is now at Lumina, it was evident that all of the aforementioned measures paid off. We started seeing our daughter’s speech and language change, of course, for the better. Her words became clearer, letter sounds became distinct and our daughters sentences became longer and more complex-thanks to our Speech Therapist Ms. R!....

Our daughter enjoyed her time with her Speech Therapist! Although she is shy by nature, this therapist never made her feel intimidated. In fact, to help her with that, our Speech Therapist organized a little speech "social" group so our little girl could not only work on her speech and language, but be part of a conversation with other kids....

....Because of this speech therapists obvious experience, her forethought to do that for our little girl helped her to adjust to Kindergarten as well. Without a doubt, this speech therapist had a significant, positive effect on our daughter....

....Although our daughter’s speech and language is getting better, although still a work in progress, we’re convinced that without this speech therapists experience, thoughtfulness, professionalism and determination, we may not be where we are today....Again, unreservedly, I would recommend this Speech and Language Therapist for your therapy needs. We wish our daughter was still a recipient of her services.... Feel free to contact me with any questions, by requesting the Director of Lumina Speech and Hearing to provide you with email address.

Sincerely,
Mrs. E B

Dear Sir or Madam, My child had speech therapy at school, but the progress was slow and my child was discouraged when he tried to speak more clearly. Here is a summary of the speech therapy  sessions and improvement over a 1 year  period. At the start of therapy, my child had poor speech intelligibility and had difficulty  trying to imitate speech sounds when others tried to help. Also, when our new speech therapist - now at Lumina Speech and Hearing - began to work with my child  she  quickly identified and explained to us that he had some delay in phonological awareness and avoidance of speech sounds....

....Our new speech therapist also  identified and explained to us some abnormal voice quality and  hypo nasality and after she did a routine speech oral motor exam,  our therapist made Referral to the Dr or ENT at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. The Dr/ENT agreed with our speech therapist and the Dr performed  a much needed tonsil/ adenoid procedure, Because this issue had made speech uncomfortable for my child....

....following the procedure recommended by the Dr. we were referred to by our SLP my child's attempts at speech were very much improved....

....Our therapist also  made the sessions enjoyable and  geared to my child's interests and he was motivated during many, very intense speech therapy sessions and he also was able to carry over speech skills into conversation and into other settings!....

....My child truly has benefitted from the sessions with our speech therapist, and he has become more confident in his speech. His speech therapy at school is now more productive. We recommend This speech therapist to provide your speech therapy services at Lumina Speech as we were very pleased with the time he got to spend with her as his SLP!

Sincerely,
Mrs. D. B.

To whom it may concern,
It is without reservation that I recommend our Speech Therapist;who is now forming a Private Practice with Lumina Speech and Hearing Services. She was my son's speech therapist for over a year at Children's Hospital. She is very compassionate and patient. She has the ability to make lessons effective and fun; thereby capturing the students' attention and creating motivation.

....She was always professional, personable and willing to facilitate our family needs. Under her guidance, my son's speech has improved immensely. Speech therapy provided by her would be an asset to any person with therapy needs and I recommend her for any endeavor she chooses to pursue. Please request email from the Director of Lumina Speech and Hearing Services should you wish to request verification of this reference.

Sincerely,
MA H
