"They are all so professional and they come in already knowing how to serve in the school setting. They provide high quality therapy, are very communicative, and are so easy to work with. I highly value our district's relationship with Specialized Speech Technologies! They are a high quality, dependable partner!"

-Anna Shultz

Whitehall City Schools

"Michelle and Camille are two of the finest therapists (OT and PT) I have worked with in my 40 year career! They are so student-centered and willing to go above and beyond for our students and families. They are also very knowledgeable and communicate effectively with our students, their families, and our staff. They are truly exceptional! Specialized Speech is wonderful to work with and their therapists have been outstanding! They do an exceptional job and I would recommend Specialized Speech, and their great therapists, to anyone in need of staffing in OT, PT, and SLP services!"

-Madeline Partlow

-Nicole Tyo

South Western City Schools

"Each one of the therapists bring so much to the table and have been a real joy to work with. While SST therapists have always been high quality and valuable members of our team, a special shout out should be made for Rebecca. She went from being a little unsure of toddlers to really embracing her role in our youngest classroom. Throughout the building, she really thinks outside the box, knows how to engage children, and brings humor to the buildings."

-Emily McMillion

Dahlberg Gibson Learning Center

"Kallie was wonderful to work with. She was the perfect fit for Brice Christian Academy. Katie and Julie came in when we were in a pinch and put in 100% and then some in order to help us make ends meet."

-Mitzi Boyd

The SST therapist's biggest strength is:

"I didn't come into this specialized therapy for the tongue with a positive attitude. I never had a therapist before I got braces. But it has been a real eye opener and I am thankful you (Melanie) are there to help Nikki."

- Cathy Hymes - parent


"I was unaware of such a thing as a Tongue Thrust until taking Andrew to the orthodontist at which time the film I was shown gave proof of this. It has really made a difference in Andrew's habits. I was really wondering how this type of thing would work, but it does! Thank You!"

- Dana - parent
