We absolutely love Fox Therapy Services and we are so glad we found Jessie! After trying several other Speech Therapists we were feeling frustrated and a bit lost. Our son is 4 & I wanted him to be able to receive the help and tools he needs while still having fun in the process. Jessie as an awesome ability to make Speech Therapy enjoyable for him. He looks forward to going every week and we have seen him make amazing progress. Jessie is very knowledgeable in Speech Pathology, yet talks to me mom-to-mom, which I so appreciate. We would definitely recommend Jessie & Fox Therapy Services!

I cannot say enough about Fox Speech Services! We worked with Ms Stefanie. My daughter was extremely speech delayed. We had been at another independent therapist and I just felt that they were misdiagnosing her. Luckily, due to a change in health insurance and through the referral of our pre-school, we enrolled with Ms Stefanie and the rest is history. My daughter has fully developed in her verbal communication and is now confident in herself because she can articulate. We recommend this place all the time.
I recently saw Amelia, the lactation consultant, who is IBCLC certified as well as a dietician. My 5 month old had been having weight gain issues, and Amelia was very professional, compassionate, and thorough. Amelia made recommendations and frequently followed up with us to see how things were going and to see if those recommendations needed to be modified. She was always available and you could tell that she truly loves and is passionate about what she does. Amelia shared her own personal struggles with breastfeeding, which made me feel comfortable and like I wasn't the only one having issues with this. I feel like her also being a dietician gives her a rounded out perspective. It seems that many lactation consultants are anti-formula, but Amelia approached our case without judgment and worked with us so that we could ultimately continue breastfeeding but also meet nutritional needs and gain weight.
Jessie is literally a miracle worker. I am one of her older patients, so I was not sure how much work could actually be done for someone who wasn't a child. But wow. In 3 months time Jessie worked so hard with me and boy did it pay off. She helped my speech and now I can barely hear my previous sharpness in speech. And it doesn't hurt that she is also a lovely, gregarious, kind woman. Go see Jessie, she knows what she's doing!!!!
My 2.5 yr old son has been seeing the owner Jessie for almost 6 months now. When we first contacted Fox speech services we were in the process of getting my sons surgery scheduled for a tongue and lip tie release. My 2.5yr old was not talking AT ALL. I was beyond concerned and my gut was always filled with worry. I had my doubts. From the first session I still had doubts because it's play based. We're six months in and I have absolutely been proven wrong. My son who wasn't talking has over 20-25 words and is working on two word combos now and his comprehension of speech is taking off. We wouldn't be where we are right now with out Jessie and her fantastic team. They've become family to us and I'm so grateful and thankful for finding them.

How do I know if my child needs speech therapy?
There are many different reasons why a child may need speech therapy. First and foremost, Trust Your Gut!! A parent knows their child best. If you have any concerns I encourage you to seek out the guidance of a speech pathologist.
Your child may need speech therapy if he or she…
• Has not begun to say words by 12 months
• Does not seem to understand questions or directions
• Has speech that is difficult to understand
• Has a diagnosis of autism or other developmental delays
• Does not seem interested in developmentally appropriate play with toys
• Has difficulty interacting socially with peers
• Cannot express themselves using sentences similar to peers
• Has a hearing loss
How long will my child need speech therapy?
This is likely the most common question that I am asked by families. While I wish I was able to provide a concrete answer, the reality is that there are too many factors to consider. Every child is different and at Fox Therapy Services we tailor our services to the individual. Some factors that impact the rate at which your child will progress through therapy include, but are not limited to:
Rapport with the therapist: While some kiddos warm up very quickly, others may take several sessions to feel comfortable. Once the therapist and child have established a positive and trusting relationship, therapy sessions are much more impactful.
Behavior: A child’s behavior can greatly influence the rate of progress. While behavior is a means of communication, sometimes behavior challenges need to be addressed before we can work on therapy goals.
Family Involvement and Carryover: At Fox Therapy Services we are huge advocates of family involvement during therapy sessions. The more the family is involved, and the greater the carryover is in the home environment, the more successful your child will be in achieving their goals.
No two kids are the same: Therefore, even two children working on very similar goals will progress at different rates. One week your child will make huge strides and the next week we may see little progress. This is to be expected and is a natural part of the process.
What should my child be able to say (expressive language) and understand (receptive language)?
Children differ vary in their development of language. There is, however, a natural progression or “timetable” for mastery of skills.
How do I know what speech sounds my child should be able to say?
Different sounds develop at different ages. If your child is not able to produce certain sounds (articulation disorder) by a specific age they may need speech therapy.
It is also important to consider your child’s overall speech intelligibility (the percentage of your child’s speech that a listener can understand).
