Lorraine's support and knowledge has been invaluble to my partner John who has Motor Neurone Disease. We saw Lorraine shortly after John's diagnosis and she immediately advised him to bank his voice. Although his speech was only mildly affected at the time, we followed Lorraine's advice. She was able to explain the voice banking process to us and told us which text to speech app would be best for John. Now John has lost his speech. He uses a text to speech app with his banked voice. We're both so glad that he still has his voice.

I was looking for a good speech therapist for my 23 year old son with ASD. I am so glad I found Lorraine. She was able to understand him and adapt the sessions to his needs. She is patient with him and I have seen his confidence in social speaking grow since he started with Lorraine. Her apps are so good for us practice at home and she is constantly thinking of ideas to try next. My son looks forward to his sessions with her. Lorraine is also very good in bouncing ideas off me and we work as a team to help my son. It is not easy to find a therapist who understands autism, Lorraine does!

My husband Tom had speech therapy with Lorraine following his stroke. She not only really helped him, she also really helped me. At the time I was struggling to communicate with Tom. He used to get so frustrated when I didn't understand what he was trying to say. I used to get angry and frustrated too. Lorraine's conversation partner training was so helpful. I learned how to adapt my own communication and how to support Tom with his.
