"Lauren makes learning creative and fun for our two-year-old. She is always patient and kind and extremely encouraging. She has taught us great tips to incorporate in our daily routine. We are very happy we found her!"

Parent of a 2 y.o., Roanoke

"Since starting OT with Lauren, my son has went from 36lbs and not eating for 18 hours at a time to now 42lbs and trying foods I never thought I would see him eat. I have seen him gain pride in his accomplishments, improve his fine motor skills, and prepare for preschool." 

Parent of a 5 y.o., Roanoke

"Lauren is now a part of our family and we wouldn't know what to do without her. She has helped me learn how to parent him and gain confidence as a mom that I, too, can learn the skills to get him through this. Lauren is one of our angels!"
