My daughter was witnessing extreme difficulty clustering and retrieving information as well as reading and formulating coherent sentences. Unfortunately, we did not realize the severity of the problems until the age of 10. Beyond Speech therapy center has been working with our daughter for the past 6 months and the progress we have witnessed is remarkable. Not only can she express herself and communicate with her peers, teachers and family members with much better clarity, but her self-esteem has been improved and she feels much better about herself. The therapists at the center have a very friendly approach with the children that enables trust and good foundations for the therapeutic relationship to exist. A grateful father
When you discover that your child has been officially diagnosed with a particular disorder, the sign of relief that you can actually put a label to what has been troubling you for so long is suddenly replaced with this sheer panic of who will help you help him. My son was diagnosed with SLI (Specific Language Impairment). In summary, this meant that the way he processes information and expresses language happens differently. He’s a fascinating kid with a fabulous mind. But to help him cope with the confines of regular schooling and society, we needed to get him help. We went through a couple of speech therapists, the last one telling my son to not be stupid when he answered something incorrectly. Needless to say, she was quickly discarded. It was at this time that I was fortunate to be informed about Marianna and her speech therapy centre. And my God, did my life change. Finally, someone (well, a team of someone’s) who actually got my son, who lifted his psychology, who made sense of him and who helped him make sense of everything else around him. I will forever be grateful for Marianna and her team having entered our lives. They will never truly know how valuable they have become to us, easing my fears and embracing my son, quirks and all!
Στα δυο του χρόνια το παιδάκι μας είχε διαγνωστεί με το σύνδρομο Ασπεργκερ, χαμηλού ή ψηλού βαθμού για μας τη δεδομένη στιγμή δεν είχε σημασία, ήταν ένας ωκεανός στον οποίο μας έριξαν χωρίς σωσίβιο. Στην αναζήτηση θεραπευτών γνωρίσαμε την κυρία Χριστοδούλου-Ντεβλετιάν η οποία ήταν για μας σωτήρας και στήριγμα σε πολλαπλά επίπεδα. Στα τέσσερα χρόνια που κράτησαν οι θεραπείες μας με τον απόλυτο επαγγελματισμό της και ταυτόχρονα με την ανθρωπιά της στήριξε τόσο το παιδί μας όσο και εμάς τους γονείς σε όλες τις δύσκολες φάσεις οδηγώντας μας στο καλύτερο αποτέλεσμα. Αυτή τη στιγμή το παιδί μας φοιτά στο Δημοτικό Σχολείο χωρίς καμία απολύτως στήριξη αν και τη δικαιούται, και μάλιστα με ψηλές επιδόσεις. Για μας η κυρία Χριστοδούλου-Ντεβλετιάν και η ομάδα της είναι ένα κομμάτι της ευρύτερης μας οικογένεις. Σας ευχαριστούμε από καρδιάς.
