It is my pleasure to write a testimonial on behalf of Lauren Gurtman, an accomplished speech Pathologist., certified by the American Speech Language Hearing Association, and licensed in both New York and New Jersey. Lauren’s training is impressive; she is PROMPT certified, and trained in a myriad of techniques and methodologies including Beckman, Kaufman, SOS, and Talk Tools, with a specialty in Childhood Apraxia of Speech and oral –motor feeding therapy. We have shared patients, referring to each other over the last 5 years. Most importantly, your child will make progress in her competent hands. I unconditionally recommend her to be your child’s speech-language pathologist.

We were faced with the difficult task of finding a therapist who specialized in Childhood Apraxia of Speech. After searching long and hard for a certified PROMPT therapist, we are pleased to say that Kids Communicate has surpassed our expectations. Our son struggled for very long in traditional speech therapy with Early Intervention. Within in only a short period of time working with Lauren we began to see significant changes and progress with his speech. Her expertise, technique and mannerisms with our son are exceptional. He enjoys going to therapy and especially loves playing with all the toys!..Lauren is extremely knowledgable, so loving and very flexible. We highly recommend Lauren at Kids Communicate. She is truly amazing.
