I struggled with the decision of speech therapy, had done my local SLP rounds. Dr. Pratiksha with her vibrant smile brought light. Very friendly and understanding of my concerns, she didn’t sugarcoat that my son did lack in certain areas. We had the online sessions and my son couldn’t get away with tears and tantrums. The day to day activities were tailor made. Perfect to the need of the hour. Everyday I would eagerly wait for the ping in my inbox.
Dr. Pratiksha always gave me a detailed and clear report about my son’s abilities and development. The sessions did not stick just to speech but a lot of encouragement to me as a parent. Her Mantra” ROUTINE n just ROUTINE helps”. Having the child and us caregivers maintain a routine is just so important for any positive improvement. From no words at age 2.5 years , my son started sentences at 2.9yrs.
Dr. Pratiksha helps you with the overall development of the child. Participating and watching her work with my child, showed me a better way to relate to my child with gentleness and firmness.Dr. Pratiksha‘s guidance has been invaluable to me.
The DIY speech activities are a hit with my daughter. I get to revise all the areas necessary for speech development and they are super fun too.
Since the activities written by Pratiksha Ma’am are tailor made I can see they are helping my son a lot. He looks forward to doing them everyday and has started speaking and understanding better after doing them for a few months.
All the speech activities have made a huge impact on my child’s speech and communication. He sits longer, understands more, has better eye contact and attention span.
We had visited many speech therapists before Pratiksha ma’am, but were never satisfied with anyone else. She has changed my daughter’s life !
My child loves to go to Pratiksha maam’s speech sessions. She is a fun loving therapist and my child has shown immense progress through her intervention
Pratiksha ma’am has her own way with children. My son couldn’t talk even a single word when we started therapy with her and now he can speak in sentences. Very happy with all the help we received.
I would highly recommend Pratiksha maam for anyone who needs speech therapy. She is knowledgeable and makes her sessions very interesting and helpful.
