“My family would certainly recommend using the Adult Services of SPG. Late 2009, mom had a stroke resulting in severe Aphasia and Apraxia. Immediately after discharging from an acute rehabilitation center, we engaged SPG (initially Janel and later Lisa) to continue the intensive speech language therapy that she had been receiving. SPG was able to establish a similar protocol within a couple down days. Initially, Janel would come to the assisted living facility and later when she was more mobile mom attended office sessions. Over the course of a year, mom had significant receptive gains and some improvement in expression through the use of Augmentative Alternative Communication (iPad & App), a communication book, phonemic cues, gestures etc. As mom developed a friendly relationship with Janel, her view of the sessions was less about therapy and more about a somewhat normal social exchange – a big pressure reliever for her. With the direction/help of SPG and others, we felt good about pushing the envelope beyond the all too familiar Medicare/HMO boundaries that seem to inhibit solution finding.” ~ Charles
