“When Ms. Kimberly Binford asked me if I would like to give a testimonial for her website, I jumped at the chance! She did SO much for my little girl, Lilly, that I would do anything I can to say thank you. When I first met Ms. Kimberly, I was a basket case. I myself had went through speech therapy as a child and had a horrible experience. To this day I can not say many things with an “R” in them. So when I realized that my precious little girl was having difficulty communicating with others and was not “growing out of it” as I had hoped, I was just so upset. I thought “this is going to be a long frustrating experience with sloppy results.” Boy was I wrong!!!! From the initial meeting it was clear to me that Ms. Kimberly knew what she was doing and knew that she could help Lilly. Sure, it took some time, due diligence, and homework every night, but I was just as determined to help Lilly as Ms. Kimberly. And Lilly thought it was fun! She adores Ms. Kimberly to this day. She started with Kimberly when she was 4 and a half. I wanted her to be prepared before starting Kindergarten, and I definitely didn’t want other children to make fun of her. I myself had suffered through how cruel kids can be. Within 7 months Lilly was speaking clearly with no problems at all and she was done with the program. To this day people are surprised when I tell them that she had speech therapy because if I didn’t tell you, you would never know because of how well she speaks.
As she started school, I realized that as an added bonus, the therapy helped her become a better reader and speller. Because of her homework and therapy sessions with Ms. Kimberly, Lilly was already used to sounding out every letter in a word. This gave her an edge in Kindergarten, but especially now that she’s in second grade.
I honestly can not say enough good things about Ms. Kimberly. She is the best at what she does and the children love her! We love her! She gave Lilly the gift of communication and for that I can never thank her enough.”
