"Our son has been working with Ratiner Speech services under the expert guidance of Lynn since he was two. From the moment I contacted Sharon I knew we were in the right place. It is clear that Ratiner Speech services prioritizes children at all levels from the director, to the therapists, to the administrative staff. Miss Lynn, Shane's therapist, consistently goes above and beyond for Shane. Miss Liza, who offers administrative support has advocated for our son on multiple occasions with our insurance provider to ensure that he received quick services since his needs were quite developmentally sensitive. Our son had a very unique feeding issue connected to other rare medical conditions. Sharon worked quickly and efficiently with us to get us in the able hands of Miss Lynn, his weekly therapist, who has provided unbelievable support to our Shane and embraced all of my children in her work with him so that all of us look forward to our weekly therapy visits and all of us have learned how to support him as she works both with him, models with my older son, and gives us resources and strategies to continue at home. It is hard to believe that Shane has developed so much in one year. This little boy who couldn't eat any solids is now the only child in his day care class who actually feeds himself all textures and all types! This wouldn't have happened without the services Ratiner Speech provides and the thoughtful, expert guidance of our family favorite "Miss Lynn." Miss Lynn continues to work with Shane to support his speech development and we couldn't be happier with her support and the entire office. We have had to navigate many services for our son and this is by far top on our list!" Jim & Heather Casey"

"We love Sharon! My child has been a client of Sharon's for quite a while now as she is diagnosed with a lifelong disability. Sharon's expertise, diligence and genuine concern are the ideal combination ensuring progress and success. She works closely with her school to coordinate speech therapy goals so there is carry-over between the school and private therapy. When my daughter first came to Sharon, she was not able to say 1 word - not a single word! Now my daughter's vocabulary is flourishing and she is able to communicate her wants and need. I accredit this to Sharon's work and guidance which are a large part of that success! I would highly recommend Ratiner Speech to anyone as they will receive custom-tailored therapy that meet's each individual's needs."

"Sharon has been right there for us, for over 15 years, through the crying stage when she would get only five minutes of work from our daughter, to the me dical issues, medications issues, school selections and many more to name. Not only deos Sharon use the most up-to-date methods during sessions, she also makes them enormously fun. Our daughter, and all the other kids we seein her offie, come out of the sessions with a big some and usually a warm hug for Sharon. Sharon has become a very important person in my daughter's life and continues to be a wonerful resource as we tackle adulthood."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Lynn for a little over a year and a half now. She has been our son's speech therapist and has always gone above and beyong for my family. MY son didn't have many words at age two and of course my husband and I were concerned. Lynn was the first educatior to see our son out of his element adn in her office. Needless to say, she addressed all of our needs and concerns right then and there. We felt very comfortable and started with our speech sessions shortly after the initial consultation. One of the many wonferful attributes abt Lynn is how she not only makes my son feel welcomed, but she has always mae me feel at peace with my decisions about my son. I truly have ran many ideas past her and we would bith run with it and see how my son would handle it. I honestly feel the reason he is doing so well is becayse Lynn and my family are all on teh same page wehn it comes to what is best for him. We would highly recommend Ms. Lynn and her associates for a wonferful experinece dealing with Speech needs."

"My son never wants to leave the office, she (Sharon) has worked very hard with him to get him caught up to the rest of the children his age regarding speech and language. I can't say how much we appreciate her hard work this past year."
