“At age seven, my son Dylan still only ate puréed foods. Any lumps in his food would cause him to gag and vomit. Now Dylan eats "real" food. Janice was a miracle for us. She restored happiness to mealtimes at our house.

“My daughter Delaney began seeing Janice for feeding and speech issues around the age of 18 months. Janice would continuously come up with new ideas to interest Delaney and to make her feel comfortable with interacting with food. She not only worked well with Delaney but also was a great resource for me with providing materials and feeding strategies to implement at home.

“Janice is an amazing speech therapist and after 28 years as a PT on various therapy teams, I have witnessed first hand the incredible difference she can make for not only infants and children but also moms and dads as she works through feeding difficulties to change lives.
