Thanks for leaving such an impact
I wanted to first thank you ever so much for being such a fantastic person and therapist for my daughter, Lana. I have seen many therapist over the past year and I have to say that I was very impressed with your dedication to your work and your talent at it. Lana has learned a lot from you and, all thanks to you, she now actually pays attention to her own words when she says them. Lana's twin brother is also your best evaluator. He is very particular about people and he worries about Lana a lot, so he constantly checks on who's working with her. He's very comfortable around you and that's saying a lot. Lana is moving on to DCPS provided speech therapy at her local school (Janney). The therapist there has just started working with her and we look forward to building on the strengths that you've left her with. So I'd like to say thank you again for your dedication and for leaving such an impact.

My daughter, Tali, completed an accelerated version of the cognitive skills program during the summer of 2009. Tali attends an academically competitive private school. When she was in second grade I became concerned that she would not be able to keep up next year. This year her grades have gone from 70s to solid 90s. Her teacher, Betty, was beyond amazing. She and Tali developed a solid bond and Tali readily responded to Betty's instructions. The program was well worth the money.
Very Pleased with NS
Brooke, my son's therapist works extremely well with my child. She uses subject matter that he is interested in and provides positive, but constructive prompts. He really enjoys coming to therapy and that i saying a lot for a 13 year old boy!
Happy Parent Called
Sabra, J.K.'s mother called and wanted to let you know that J.K. saw you when she was 6 years old, and since then, she has done excellent in school. She is graduating with a 3.7 GPA from high school, and has been accepted into every university she applied for! Mom wanted to let you know it's all because of you and send her thanks!
National speech is an exceptional outlet, they have a truly professional and exceptional staff who are not only willing to work with my child, but also willing to instruct me as a parent on the bests ways to work with my child at home. They truly are a family friendly practice and also kindly assist us with dealing with insurance reimbursement issues without which, we could not continue therapy.

Very Happy Client
My daughter's language skills have improved considerably since she began working with her speech therapist, Sabra. She not only communicates better, but she is less frustrated which makes her happier and more self assured. A good sign is that she is always excited to go to speech therapy. That is something that didn't happen with her last speech therapist.
Dear Sabra, I am just writing this letter to thank you for everything you have done in the past for my two children. The fact that we got to meet you in our life time is just a huge blessing, I want you to know that you may not hear this very often, but you are such a very special person. You radiate love and hope for the parents that visit your center with our little ones. You are amazing and you have such an amazing gift from the Lord to deal with the kids. One more time I thank you!!
Both of my children have been receiving therapy at NSLTC off and on for the last 13 years. It has had a profound impact on their development and achievement. The understanding of the therapists at this center is unparalleled. The Chief of Neurology at Johns Hopkins Medical Center, was amazed at the therapy my son had been receiving - even before a diagnosis, and said it was critical to the progress he had made. Sabra and Monica, I can't thank you enough!!

I cannot express how indebted we are to Sabra Gelfond and the staff at NSLTC. After leaving a therapist that couldn't handle my "difficulty" son, we were greeted by Sabra with open arms - and those arms have never closed. My son has made incredible progress - going from a non-verbal, angry child to a calm, collected, and very verbal little guy. This is in no small part due to the love, support and patience of Sabra and everyone at NSLTC. We will be forever grateful.

We Love National Speech
Our experience at National Speech has been wonderful. Sabra is not only a great therapist, but she is also an incredible, caring person. She so wanted to make a difference in our child's life. She took our family under her wing, she went above and beyond her role as a therapist, she guided us, she educated us, she pushed us forward, and pulled us back when she thought we were on the wrong path. All this she did with love, and a genuine desire, from her heart, to help. We love National Speech.
