“Theraspeech has been a Godsend to my daughter and our family.  My daughter started speech therapy at 2 1/2 years old for speech delay and was being monitored for autism. Mariam has guided us through this process and treated my daughter like her own. She truly tailor makes your child’s care plan for optimal success. If a technique is no longer engaging your little one she assesses and reassesses to engage your child and meet and exceed their learning objective.

Isabella is now saying more words with comprehension and two word phrases 6 months in!! We are ecstatic and most grateful for all of Mariam’s efforts.”

“Mariam has been our son’s speech therapist for almost 10 years.  She is an amazing professional.  Our son has had real and measurable gains in his speeh and language.  We continue to be impressed with her new and different approaches to the challenges he faces and she always manages to keep him engaged and progressing.  We would recommend Mariam to anyone who needs a caring, committed and knowledgeable speech therapist.”


“Mariam is the best darn speech therapist there is.!

She’s extremely knowledgeable about her field; takes the time to get to know her clients; compassionate; a great listener and a great teacher. Most importantly she has A LOT OF PATIENCE which is extremely important when dealing with special needs kids.   Our family loves her and most importantly my daughter looks forward to Ms. Mariam’s visits. Thanks for all that you do!”


“Mariam Obas-Ducoste has been a real angel for our family. Mariam’s dedication, wisdom, and sincere interest in our daughter’s therapy have been the key to her continuing success at this most crucial period of her speech development.

Our daughter will be entering kindergarten this fall, and with Mariam’s caring therapy she has overcome most of her speech challenges. My wife and I are confident that with continued instruction our daughter will not only conquer her challenges, but gain greater self esteem and confidence as well. We feel blessed to have found Mariam and would wholeheartedly recommend her to other families.
