I can't say enough positive things about Abigail. She's been working with my son for about a year now and according to his teachers, [he] is now "thriving academically". [His] standardized test scores went up about 30 percentile and he's gone from a 5th grade reading level to an 8th grade reading level (he's in 7th grade). She is responsible and dependable. I can't recommend her highly enough.
We were all SO VERY happy with Abigail! She was kind and thoughtful when it came to helping our girls with speech. Our middle is very shy and timid and she was able to make her comfortable before they started working together which caused her to flourish. She is an amazing teacher and speech specialist. We absolutely adored working with Abbie. We miss her so much. We moved so we could no longer continue with Abbie. Anyone would be very blessed to have the opportunity to work with Abbie.
Abbie with TherapyWorks worked with my son for over a year. Honestly, she worked wonders and we saw a huge impact to our 8th grader's standardized test scores. She is a gifted therapist, but she also cares about her clients. Once my son finished his program, I was sad to say good-bye to Abbie, I feel like she's part of our family. TherapyWorks administration was also very helpful with insurance issues caused by my employer's swap in plans.
