“I am so thankful to have found Michele to help my daughter improve her language skills. After many years of private tutoring and feeling like my daughter was still struggling with her reading comprehension and language skills, I was instructed to find a speech/language pathologist and Michele came highly recommended from our pediatrician. Michele thoroughly tested and found the problem areas and set up a learning plan. My daughter looked forward to seeing Michele each week and eagerly worked to strengthen her language skills. Michele always made learning fun by playing games and incorporating learning into topics of interest for a preteen/teen girl. One day after reading the “Gabbing Together” website I learned that Michele also specialized in feeding therapy. My daughter is also an extermely picky eater with a very limited menu. Due to her IBD, she sticks to safe foods and has a fear of trying new foods. I asked Michele if she could help and she quickly assessed the issues and began incorporating feeding therapy into the weekly tutoring session. I was amazed at how quickly she was able to convince my daughter to try new foods. Michele has definitely given my daughter the tools and confidence she needs to succeed and reach her academic goals throughout high school and college, and most importantly has freed her from her fear of food. We are truly grateful for all her help. ” Parent of 15 year old child

 

“Michele was the speech therapist for both my girls. My older daughter Julia was diagnosed at the age of 18 months with Pdd-Nos. Michele worked with Julia on her speech and facial tone several times a week. Julia also had a tongue thrust so she did feeding sessions with her as well. Michele developed a trusting relationship with my daughter. She was very professional and on target when deciding what approach she needed to take to suit my daughters individual needs. After a few years of Michele working with Julia, her speech progressively developed. Julia was where she needed to be for her age. With hard work and determination, Julia’s label was removed. I am proud to say that today, Julia is 13 years old, with no speech problems what so ever. She attends junior high and is in their honors program. When we found my younger daughter Alyssa also had speech problems, we didn’t hesitate to call Michele and ask for her services. After 6 months, Alyssa’s speech had improved to the point where she no longer needed the services. I highly recommend Michele Lyon Dickson, as she is an experienced, knowledgeable, well educated speech therapist, who will put her heart into working with your child.” Roseanne G.

 

“Words cannot begin to express how grateful I am to have found such a wonderful speech therapist as Michele. I am forever grateful that she was able to have my son reach his goals through her caring and diligent work which enabled him to express the words that were hidden inside him. My son is now in kindergarten and has no problems communicating with his teachers and his classmates. I am so proud of him and proud to have had such a wonderful therapist help him reach his full potential.” Tanya H.
