What are families saying?
We have had many different speech therapists for our son. Sessions where it was Q/A or so dry and uninspired that I was even bored. It's been a long time that we felt that someone "got" our son but Siris does. She has a very keen understanding on how to create a session with him that he participates in and enjoys. It's also a unique change to actually have someone help guide you through a session and help you navigate what your child needs in order to be engaged. I am now observing my son through a better lens. What does his body need? Is he bored? Is the session too slow or fast? Does he need a break? I see my son asking and answering questions, showing enthusiasm and excitement.
Just because your child doesn't "perform" doesn't mean that they are not capable. You just need the right person who has the right approach to help your child grow.
Thank you Siris!
So happy to have met you.
Siris has been working with our son for approximately 3 years. She first served as a consultant to his regular speech therapist – since Siris was well-versed in apraxia. She then became our son’s regular therapist and has been working with him via Zoom for about 2 years.
Siris’ approach is working with the whole family and child. She is very interested in what he is experiencing day to day – socially, physically, emotionally. She integrates all these pieces in her approach, and she is knowledgeable about all these pieces, too.
Our son has both speech delay as well as apraxia. He also has developmental delays. Over the time that our son has worked with Siris, his articulation has improved immensely. He is also able to engage in short conversations with people, taking turns in asking questions, providing information, etc. Siris has also been working with our son on his grammar. Since he is not a native English speaker, she has helped him make significant gains in grammar such as past tense, pronouns, plurals, verbs including irregular verbs, and using “do” vs “does”.
Our son has a very good rapport with Siris. She is so attuned to the emotions of the child during therapy and knows when to switch up activities. She is also very proficient at teletherapy (as she has been doing it for a long time). She has many visual activities and kinesthetic activities to engage the learner.
We are so pleased with the progress our son has made, particularly during the time he has been working with Siris.
Ms. Rivas has been an awesome speech therapist for my son. She’s the only one who’s been consistent the last few years and during the pandemic. My son is able to answer questions with little prompts, have a conversation and sequence sentences about videos and stories. She supports our efforts in incorporating these skills into his daily routines. He wasn’t able to do any of this before we started with her two years ago and I was indirectly, and sometimes directly, told that this would not be possible for him to ever be able to do from other therapists and educators. As soon as I met her, and she started working with my son, I knew something different was going to show up. He is so happy to see her and working with her has given me so much peace of mind and clarity on what will work for my son now and moving forward.
