 What people are saying about Teresa at Horizons Speech Language and Voice:

When Juston started coming at 4½ years old, he had a vocabulary of around 10 words. Then a year later, he began to use full sentences. Now after two years, he speaks correctly, non-stop. His biggest achievement is that he was named the lead in a school play.”
– Tawnya B., Golden

We can understand Michael (age 6) so much better than we could a year ago. He is no longer frustrated trying to com­municate with others. He made great pro­gress, which will help him for the rest of his life!”
– Liz M., Denver

Megan (age 4) has gone from a very heart breaking problem of constant stuttering to 90 to 95% fluency.  Now she never says, ‘Mommy, I don’t speak right.’”
– Betsy G., Aurora

Bailey (age 2) is talking non-stop now and continuing to amaze us with new words, concepts and sentences.”
– Kim L., Denver

It was hard to think my voice was going to be hoarse all my life and that I might not ever sing or perform again.  But I don’t have to worry about that anymore.  Everything I want to do, I can do.”
– Joe L. (age 13), Englewood

A few weeks of tongue exercises made a dramatic difference in Ali’s (age 7) overbite, allowing her to smile. Her speech has become clearer and easier to understand.”
– Robin R., Englewood
