Being a single mom is hard, especially with a toddler who is a little behind, but Jill has made mine and Tobias' life so much easier and so much simpler. I just had to share my testimony.

– Briana, Tobias' Mom


I want to start off by saying Jill, our Siskin developmental  therapist, has been WONDERFUL. My son has had a late start with speech/behavior/potty training because we found out for a long time he couldn’t hear very well due to ear infections. We finally got tubes about 6 months ago and every week Jill has been there to give me pointers, work with Tobias, show me new techniques, and encourage me and reminds me all the time of how great of a mom I am to him. She truly cares and I just want to share my testimony and my gratitude toward Jill and all of Siskin. His speech is now wonderful I can understand almost everything he says. With Jill’s help and advice his behavior has improved drastically and finally, potty training. 

Jill told me to make his bathroom more inviting so I put up pictures he had drawn at daycare and that made him want to be in there more. And the biggest part, she introduced me to padded underwear which I didn’t even know existed. She explained that pull ups are okay they just don’t feel the wetness so kids aren’t caring if they make it to the potty. I bought the underwear and he is now almost FULLY potty trained even telling me when he has to go, all in a few months. He’s even wearing padded underwear to school and now and alerting his teachers about potty time as well. 

I just wanted to say I thought I would never see him being able to potty so soon by himself and him so verbal in telling me since communication has always been the main problem and if it wasn’t for Jill he would still be struggling with it! She’s been wonderful and the classes I’ve came to at Siskin have helped me a lot too. Being a single mom is hard, especially with a toddler who is a little behind, but Jill has made mine and Tobias life so much easier and so much simpler. I just had to share my testimony.
