“Belinda started working with Jonah when he was around 18 months old.  At that time, he was mainly humming and would not open his mouth to make sounds. He required intense therapy and Belinda was exactly who he needed! He loved his "play" time with Mrs. Belinda, and she made sure he had lots of sensory input during their sessions. He was growing by leaps and bounds. She was instrumental in helping us get him evaluated for autism. With lots of therapy and time, the words started flowing.  During our time with Belinda, our Gideon was born. Gideon's Down syndrome diagnosis surprised us all. She was with us every step or the way and helped get us on the right track for his therapy. She is more than a speech therapist to us. She is an important part of our family, and continues to go out of her way to help our boys any time they need it.  She helped our boy find his voice, and we will forever be thankful for her expertise and friendship. ”
