"As a preschool educator, I have had the opportunity to work with Jenifer Gaum in the classroom. She is an astute observer of a child's speech and language needs and is able to incorporate therapy into typical classroom play. The other classroom children view her as another adult helping in the classroom. I appreciated her feedback on how I can best help a specific child, and most suggestions actually benefit all children. Jennifer has been helpful diagnosing when a child needs either therapy or developmental time and in guiding me as I work with the young children in my classroom." -SG
