Thank you Hyer Learning! Meredith has improved so much in reading - thanks to Fast ForWord. When we met last May, she seemed so defeated when she tried to read. Now, just 5 months later, she's at grade level. That's a two-year jump in reading fluency and comprehension. Erin's professional support and encouragement was fantastic throughout the process. We know there's still work ahead of us, especially in writing, but our daughter is now inspired.
Our son, Malcolm was slow to speak, but thanks to Erin Hyer we now can't get him to be quiet! She truly made a difference in his life. When everyone else said, "wait and see" - I discussed it with Erin and we decided to not risk it. Malcom was already three and his peers seemed light-years ahead of him. Now after 6 months of early intervention and coaching for us, he is happier and in more control. He can engage in social situations, where before he would either get frustrated or shut down. We are so grateful to working with Hyer Learning.
Our daughter Sarah is 8 years old and although her speech was very cute, it has not always been easy for teachers and friends to understand her. She has struggled with her S's and R's, and despite having speech through the school system for the last 2 years, has made no noticeable progress. She started working with Erin about 2 months ago. She loves working with Erin and looks forward to her speech sessions. She is actively engaged, and is eager to tell us about what she is working on. Erin has taken the time to explain how to position her mouth and tongue to make each sound, and when needed has used speech tools to help Sarah succeed in learning the correct positions. Sarah practices sounds at home and friends and teachers are commenting that her speech is improving. Thanks Erin, we would recommend you highly to anyone in need of speech services!
For so many years professionals told us our son wouldn't ever speak, but we never gave up. Finding Erin Hyer at Hyer Learning has been a godsend - Erin understands how to calm our son down, and help him focus. Erin believed in our son's potential and supported his desire to verbally communicate. They work together to improve his sensory awareness, building his strength and coordination. Speech is not easy when you have Autism, but Erin takes the time to explain and teach us why and how to practice at home. He needs a lot of training, but others are starting to understand him. He is happier and feels like he is important. We would recommend Hyer Learning to those looking for help with speech, attention, autism, listening and learning. Thank you, Erin.
