TESTIMONIALS

On behalf of Georgia and my entire family I want to thank the team at Speech and Voice Therapy for the amazing work, interest and kindness they showed towards Georgia during her therapy.  Literally from the moment I called and spoke to Paul I felt assured that I was choosing the right place for Georgia.  She has come leaps and bounds in terms of her communication, clarity and confidence.  Everyone can see the huge difference – from my family and friends to her teachers at school.   She went from being somewhat of an introvert who preferred to play and read alone to a child that participates in group activities and plays and talks with her friends at school.  Georgia loves Laura and would go RUNNING into her appointments.  I loved that at the end of each appointment I would sit with Laura and hear about the fun, creative ways in which she would get Georgia communicating.  I would recommend Speech and Voice Therapy to anyone that really is looking for a team that is fully invested in helping your child get the tools they need to communicate to the best of their abilities. Thank you again so much! — Christine Clinton, Dedham, MA

 “My experience at SVTC has changed my life! I suffered from hoarseness and voice loss for most of my life. As a working mother of 3 I never thought I could fit in therapy. The entire staff at SVTC worked with my difficult schedule, never making me feel like I was difficult. I began to look forward to my meetings with Sharon Frank. Her expertise in voice and her kindness helped me recover beyond what my physician thought was possible. I have learned how to preserve my vocal cord function. I am no longer embarrassed by my voice. I am forever grateful to Sharon Frank and her staff for providing such wonderful, comprehensive care to me.” — Janet Bridges, Foxboro, MA

  “Being referred to the Speech and Voice Therapy Center, and more specifically to Sharon Frank, Director, was the best thing that could have happened to me. Not only did I get my voice back after not having it for five months, I also learned excellent techniques for maintaining a strong voice, as well as many skills to improve my general health and well-being. I didn’t know so many aspects of my life and work affected my voice until I came here. Thank you!” — Nancy, North Attleboro, MA

“We have been very impressed with the speech services provided for our son. The sessions are filled with fun and games so he is excited to come back each week. The games and activities help him to improve his articulation through play. The staff members are extremely nurturing. We highly recommend Speech and Voice Therapy Center.” — Betsy

“I am a professional singer and was experiencing vocal fatigue and other issues. I came to Sharon Frank for help and she treated me with a series of vocal exercises, both for my speaking and singing voice. She also gave me helpful information about vocal hygiene practices. My voice started getting stronger and clearer and is now doing great. I sing full time, sometimes as much as 12 solid hours of singing in one weekend, and I have not experienced any problems since receiving care from Sharon. I would highly recommend her to other singers. She gave me practical exercises and helped me one step at a time. She is patient, knowledgeable and also a great person. I feel lucky to have found her.” –Krisanthi Pappas

“My daughter began seeing Sharon Frank after years of being diagnosed with “exercise induced asthma”. When steroid inhalers were not helping, we searched for an alternative treatment, and found one at the Speech and Voice Therapy Center. Sharon taught Allie how to manage her breathing difficulties without the use of any drugs. She taught her how to breathe properly and how to recognize when her body was beginning o experience trouble. Allie has gone on to play competitive field hockey thoughout her 4 years of college and is acutely aware of how to recognize and breathe through any symptoms. We can’t thank Sharon enough for her help. So many years of using a steroid inhaler – we wish we would have found Sharon sooner! Sharon’s name is a ‘verb’ in our household – we call it “Sharon Franking” when Allie is practicing her breathing techniques! Thanks for everything, Sharon. One of the best Mom-accomplishments I can brag about.” — Janice

“The staff at SVTC have been fantastic in meeting the speech needs of both of my boys. They are friendly, resourceful, caring and make speech something my boys look forward to.

“It is hard to put into words how happy I am that the trail of doctors led us to Sharon Frank of the Speech and Voice Therapy Center in Foxboro. My daughter Emma had been experiencing difficulty breathing when playing soccer. The episodes happened sporadically over the course of 2 years, but were gradually increasing in frequency. Emma had become nervous and timid during games and at practices. She was reluctant to give it her all. We are beyond grateful that after just a few short months with Sharon, Emma has regained control of her breathing.” Sharon greeted Emma with a warm, compassionate understanding of the Paradoxical Vocal Fold Movement she had been diagnosed with. She educated Emma on her condition and immediately made her confident that it would be something she could help Emma fix. Emma is now back to playing soccer with full enthusiasm. She regularly practices her breathing techniques. I will forever be grateful for the life lessons Emma received from Sharon.” — Laura Riley, North Attleboro, MA

“My 8 yr. old son’s progress with articulating certain sounds has been impressive since he started speech therapy with your specialists. He enjoys coming each week and is always smiling and proud of his work and improvements – no greater testimonial to the positive reinforcement approach from S & V than that! Thank you for all you have done for his self confidence!” — L.L., Norfolk, MA

My daughter had a mild speech impediment and did not qualify for speech therapy at school.  After a few short sessions at the Speech and Voice Therapy Center her speech issues totally resolved.  We had a great patient experience- beautiful office, great office staff, and wonderful and professional speech therapists who make the whole experience fun.  We are so grateful for the Speech and Voice Therapy Center! — Susan, Plainville, MA
