Beverly loves to establish a relationship with each and every child she works with. With a calm and confident demeanor, Beverly is determined to bring out the best in a child. Using positivity as her foundation, she breaks off a child's old belief system that they "can't" do something and implants in them a desire to come forth in the area of communication. Beverly's therapy style is functional and meaningful, so that her work correlates with the child's needs and can be applied to their everyday life.
