My son started speech therapy around eighteen months after he started to lose words and verbal language. This was my first child and being told there was concern with his lack of verbal speech development was scary. After doing some research and with some confirming recommendations I immediately felt at ease going to work with Salomi.
She was fantastic, always welcoming us with a smile and excitement to “play” with my son. He enjoyed speech therapy and looked forward to his appointments. Salomi was able to make her sessions fun and productive, always looking for ways to cater to his likes while addressing his needs. Salomi was able to guide him in practicing sounds, words, phrases and finally sentences. She helped him gain the confidence he needed and gave me tools to help support his progress at home. Now he is three years old speaking confidently in clear full sentences. I can’t say enough how thankful I am for her help. I highly recommend Salomi Daftary. - Eichenbaum family
I took my son to see Salomi because he was not producing some sounds "c","s". Salomi was great at teaching him the correct positions of the tongue and mouth, her methods worked great and he got the sounds very quickly. She makes the therapy session feel like play time and makes the kids work hard with them feeling happy and entertained. She also gives tools to parents to work with the kids at home and help with the progress. My son loves her and looks forward to every session with her.- Petersen family
Salomi is THE best! Our 5 year old boy has lisp, and after 2 months of weekly/biweekly sessions with Salomi, his speech has improved drastically.
What we love about working with Salomi:
1) she's super friendly and fantastic with kids - our son always has a great time with Salomi. We've talked to quite a few other speech therapists, and few had that positive and upbeat attitude Salomi has.
2) she's very communicative - maybe it's the nature of her profession ;), but she sets clear expectations for the child and the parents, and let us know the progress weekly if not after each session.
3) she's super resourceful and goes above and beyond - Salomi provides us with worksheets, games, online resources that we could use on a daily basis. Speech therapy takes time and practice, and her support outside of her sessions makes it so much easier and more manageable for us parents.
4) she provides virtual interactive sessions: due to COVID-19, Salomi has been offering zoom sessions, which works super well, as she always uses interactive programs to make it fun and engaging for the child.
All in all, we are beyond grateful for Salomi, for her help to improve our son's speech so quickly. We cannot recommend her more! - Li Family
My daughter loved working with Salomi. Salomi's warm and friendly personality kept my daughter engaged and learning. Salomi put together the perfect therapy plan for my daughter, and taught her several strategies that in my own daughter's words, 'gave her a developmental leap' in her auditory processing, reading comprehension, and note-taking skills. We will be forever grateful to Salomi for the work she did with my daughter.- J.Z
Salomi has been a fantastic speech therapist for the last two years with both of my children on articulation, stuttering, and social communication. Salomi first impressed me with how quickly she tuned in on what goals each of them needed to work on and building rapport -- each session was so fun, warm, and engaging. And she is not only great in working with the kids but also in communicating with me and with my sons' teachers and OT, helping us to coordinate our work. We just had our last session with her last week, and it was bittersweet; I'm so grateful for all my son has learned and he is proud, but he has also cried a couple of times about having to say goodbye to Salomi. She is simply the best! - Fourt Family
