Meet Carter & Brayden - Early Intervention Services
"My entire outlook changed, it was a full circle moment."
Carter & Brayden
Parenting is an emotional roller coaster as it is. When we realized my 2nd son, Carter was hard to understand around the age of 2, it was difficult and uncomfortable — all I did was compare him to how my first son was speaking at his age and other kids around him. I was worried about the unknown and unsure of what the future held. When I met Jessica at Rochester Hearing & Speech, my entire outlook changed.
She quickly became a patient and kind mentor to my son, making him feel confident in his abilities in a safe environment — soon his jargon became understandable sentences. Jessica and I worked so hard on his success together and because of that, she became an important part of our family.
"I’m thrilled and proud to say that he’ll be entering kindergarten this fall, and no one would ever know he once had speech challenges. In fact, my proudest moment was when his pre-K teacher said, “I can understand him 100%” — it was a full circle moment."
When my 3rd son, Brayden was experiencing similar speech delays around the age of 2, I didn’t panic — I knew I had Jessica and the Rochester Hearing & Speech community on my side. We entered him into speech and haven’t turned back since! He is now almost fully understood. We are forever grateful for the time, persistence, and kindness Jessica showed our family. I can’t recommend her enough!
