"I have a ten-year-old non-verbal little girl who is Autistic and has Apraxia. With gestures and her communication device, she was limited in her ability to express what she was thinking and feeling. Since we started this program 1 year ago, Lisa has opened up the world of communcation for my daughter with sign language."
"Since Lisa has been working with us, my daughter has been communicating and expressing her needs and ideas to us. She wants to tell us about the movies she watches and how she is feeling. When something hurts her, she is able to let me know. When we go out, she is always trying to show me something, tell me something or express what she is thinking."
"I was concerned that through sign language, my daughter would not be able to communicate with the outside world. Was I wrong! What I found was that with all three ways of communicating(gestures, augmentative device and sign language), she is now able to speak to everyone. The sign language has been such a true blessing for her, it allows her to start to think and explain her world. It has made her want to communicate with more people and let them know what she is thinking."
"Sign language is so important to a child that cannot speak. It gives them a voice. When I attempted to get help through schools for the deaf, I was turned down because my child could hear. I thought there was no hope that she would ever communicate, and then we found Lisa."
