Testimonials


  • As most everyone else has said, I am extremely grateful to have found Jennie! My son has been seeing Jennie since October 2012 and the progress he has made is nothing short of amazing. From the very beginning Jennie had a plan to work with my son and has constantly been re-vamping that plan and adapting to his needs and abilities. She has tested him and challenged him when he needed it and his strides reflect that. Jennie is an amazing therapist. Her philosophy of play therapy is exactly what kids need and enjoy. I have recommended Jennie to several friends and will continue to do so. Jennie is a godsend...literally! She has the patience of a saint and is so helpful in helping me learn exactly what I need to know about how to help my son in between therapy sessions. My son adores Jennie! What better recommendation than that!

  • Jennie is THE best! My daughter works with several speech therapists through her school, a community program, the school for the deaf, and privately with Jennie - and I can say that Jennie has been able to help my daughter in ways so many other therapists could not. I've seen HUGE improvements in my daughter. Eight months ago, she was speaking zero words. Today, she's speaking well over 250 words - in sentences - and learning 2-4 new words each day:) Having Jennie as a speech therapist for our daughter has been nothing short of life changing. Jennie is well worth the investment!!:) Thank you, Jennie, for everything you've done for our daughter & my family!!:)

  • My step-son works with several speech therapist including with Jennie. I can say hands down that she is the only one that has been able to connect with him and truly help him understand the differences of what he is doing. Every session we went to me or his father always left truly amazed of how well Jennie worked with him and so proud of our son and his progress. He always left the sessions talking about what he got to do and how he wanted to go back next week to do something new! I recommend Jennie to anyone in search of speech therapy needs! She is truly amazing and we are grateful for her ability to personalize her session to the specific child's needs and make learning something fun and not a chore!

  • Jennie's speech therapy services are remarkable. She knows what she's doing, is fantastic with kids, AND teaches the parents how to help. Jennie connected with our child and made speech therapy fun, but at the same time she challenged him and we saw results! The time Jennie invested in teaching us as parents how to help our child was invaluable and, we feel, essential to the success our son experienced working with her. Was it an investment? Yes, but in our experience, the return is 100%. I've recommended Jennie to many friends and colleagues and will enthusiastically continue to do so.

  • My 9-year old daughter had been participating in speech therapy at her elementary school for 18 weeks and didn't seem to be improving. She didn't like being pulled out of class and started not trying during speech. A friend referred us to Jennie for outside therapy, so we made an appointment for an evaluation. We have continued to see Jennie on a weekly basis and my daughter is making profound improvements. At first she was upset to be attending speech therapy, but Jennie makes learning so much fun that my daughter seems to enjoy her therapy. Jennie's approach has helped my daughter improve so quickly and she keeps me informed on her progress. I regret that we didn't find Jennie sooner!

  • I am so thankful for having found Jennie and Children's Therapy Services. Jennie's work with our four-year-old son has been incredible. He started showing an improvement almost immediately and we have made significant progress in a few months. Importantly, Jennie's work not only includes therapy, but creating a special relationship with my son, making therapy session play rather than a chore. I have previously talked to/used other speech therapists, and Jennie's dedication and knowledge to your child's needs is unmatched

  • We were lucky enough to work directly with Miss Jennie and my daughter really bonded with her during her visits to our home. Jennie Bjorem realized right away that my daughter had special issues (Apraxia of Speech) and she took it on herself to research and find creative ways to address them. She worked closely with our school district and even located additional services in our community that we could take advantage of. After using her suggestions, my daughter has gone from making a couple of distinct consonant sounds and one vowel sound to speaking very well, at age-appropriate level. We will always have a special place in our heart for Jennie Bjorem and Children's Therapy Services. Thank you, Miss Jennie!

  • Words can't express the gratitude we have in only five sessions with Jennie. One of our two and half year old twins has a speech delay and possible other concerns we haven't been able to completely identify yet. Not only has Jennie made our son feel comfortable and loved she has taken the interest to help us on our parenting. We are better equipped to work with him at home when his speech delay causes frustration between he and his twin brother. Jennie has pushed our child to a new level by not looking at his delay but seeing his possibilities. She challenges him in such a loving and playful manner that he runs to the door to see her! Our first session I had tears in my eyes while watching her with my son knowing we were finally where we needed to be. Jennie makes a difference and I am grateful we found her! Thank you for being you, Jennie because you truly are amazing!!

  • She is an extraordinary person and therapist! I can't describe enough how good, creative and committed she is, every single session was well prepared and goal oriented. Jennie is clearly gifted and has something inside that makes her know and understand what your child wants without saying a word. The children are lucky to have her and families are thankful that she can do this. I highly recommend her to any one who need this kind of service!

  • We loved Raina and Children's Therapy Services. Our son had the best experience there and showed quick, noticeable improvement in his speech. I would highly recommend CTS!

  • We LOVE Children's Therapy Services, Inc! My son only had 1 word when we started with Jennie. Now, a year later, he is talking up a storm. He loves Jennie and always enjoys going to his sessions. She is not just his therapist, but she is also our friend. Jennie has been a huge support as we navigate the world of special education. We don't know what we would do without her as an advocate for our son.

  • The progress Jennie has made with my 4-year old son regarding a few of his sounds has been unbelievable. What makes us love Jennie even more is the fact that my son enjoys going to his sessions. She makes it so fun for him he doesn't even realize he's in speech therapy. She works with our schedule and makes visits convenient for us, which is above and beyond what she needs to do. We appreciate her dedication to helping our son speak with confidence and intelligibly for his age. It is so rewarding to see the proud look on his face when he shows me what he was able to do after meeting with Jennie. We will definitely recommend her to anyone with a child need speech therapy.

  • A day doesn’t go by that I don’t thank God for bringing Jennie into our lives. I can’t help but wonder where we would be had she not come on that Saturday. These children have little windows of opportunity! Because of her intuitiveness, she found many more of these “windows”! Jennie, I thank you!! I can’t express enough how much you have done for my son!! THANK YOU!!!

  • We were so worried about our son’s lack of speech development at age 2, only speaking 2 or 3 words. Children’s Therapy Services saw him once a week to work with him and give us, as a family, further assistance in continuing his therapy daily. CTS was and still is such a blessing! Our family was so amazed at how Pierce was progressing after a short period of time. Their constant dedication and love for him was over and beyond what we had ever expected. CTS is such a wonderful trusting resource. We feel that he will continue to progress with flying colors! We hold CTS dear and near to our hearts!

  • I feel Children’s Therapy Services has put together a great program for children with special needs that will help them grow as individuals. The things my son has learned just in a few weeks he uses in his everyday life. As a mother of a child with Autism, people and organizations such as CTS can change your life. Thank you for what you do!

  • When we thought we needed some extra help with our son, I knew that CTS would be able to point us in the right direction. Marsha Tarr was appointed to work with us. Right away, Marsha set us at ease. She was engaging and encouraging every time we saw her. Our son loved spending time with her and looked forward to what special surprises might be in her bag for him to try. Marsha helped us to identify those areas that were of concern and those that were considered normal development. We feel that we are better able as parents to make decisions as a result of her efforts. Compared to prior therapeutic and parent education experiences, we feel that our family was treated with respect and with a desire for success.

  • Marsha Tarr has been our family’s parent educator for over four years. We have been so blessed by Marsha’s educational insight and developmental suggestions. Our children (five of them ages eight and under) love when Marsha comes to our home. They always ask when Marsha will be able to come back and play because the educational activities she does with them are so fun. We really appreciate Marsha helping us stay on target wit or children’s development and giving many helpful suggestions on how to keep them moving toward educational success.
