From the moment I called the Ladybug House I was confident I was receiving a prompt solution to my request for earliest available appointment for my Son. I felt at ease and completely comfortable to put my trust in their professionals and recommendations. They made the assessment process as easy as ever possible and can't Thank them enough for the improvements I have seen in his development.
Thank you very much for helping our daughter with her speech. Maria was very caring and friendly, and made everything easy to understand, not only for myself, but for our daughter as well (It’s nice to go somewhere where you feel welcome and your kids are actually happy to be there). Our daughter’s speech quickly improved from the first time we went to Ladybug House. Even her teachers have commented on how well she now speaks. I would highly recommend you to anyone. Thanks again.

From the moment I first called to make my initial appointment to see a speech pathologist I knew I'd made the right decision to put my trust in Ladybug House to help my 3 yo son overcome a stutter. Another provider on the Coast was a lot more expensive and said that you get a 'Full Report' after the assessment. Ladybug House explained that they would provide all the assessment results without the additional expense of a written report. My son is very articulate however at around 3 years and a few months he began stuttering. Over the next 6 months I repeatedly questioned my GP about what we should do and he repeatedly told me either 'he'll grow out of it' or 'he's just putting it on to get attention'. I'm an experienced Registered Nurse and the 'wait and see' approach just didn't sit well with me. I looked into stuttering myself and found that it was now best practice to intervene while children were in preschool . Alecia, my son's speech pathologist or his 'Stuck words Doctor' as he calls her is absolutely fantastic. She is friendly and knowledgeable and helped me overcome my fear that it was something I or my husband had done that caused my son to stutter. She explained what we needed to do in simple terms but comprehensive enough to fulfil my need to understand as an RN whose a mum too. We are working through the steps and my son has improved. Alecia has also given me guidance and support over the phone when I was having difficulty attributing a severity score to my son's stutter from day to day. We are in the early days of treatment but from what I can see it will take team work. My son and I are lucky to have Alecia and the team at Ladybug House on our side.
