"My daughter Janella was diagnosed with Down Syndrome at birth. She has been working with Trisha almost her entire life. She has seen her when she was a baby, a toddler and now as a little girl. She has always been by her side and, I can't thank her enough for all her work with her. Trisha had a plan to target her weaknesses and teaching her new skills. Trisha is not scared to try new methods, and she is always pushing Janella to reach her goals and go above and beyond. Thanks to her and all her work, Janella is a very high functioning little girl and currently is going to first grade in general education. Thanks to Trisha and her knowledge and professionalism, Janella is what she is today. We love her so much!!! Thank you Trisha." Elizabeth N.
"Trisha brings a wide variety of skills to help both the child and the parent in the home, in the public and in the school settings. She is able to make suggestions about different resources to help the parent and child be successful outside of the therapy session as well. Her strength is in observing the whole child and teaching the child to understand their body and environment and how they are related. She is able to provide insight into what is needed for the child to be happy, independent and understood.
Trisha is deeply committed to the overall emotional and physical progression of each child. I would highly recommend her in these challenging times for the best outcome." T.L.
