I can't say enough good things about Denise Thorsland and Fundamental Communications. Denise is always wonderful at coming up with new, creative, and fun things to keep Ada on target for reaching her goals. Ada has autism and wasn't speaking at all when we started our journey. Now with the help of Denise, she is talking and working on articulation and sentences. I cannot thank her enough. I have also had to call the company a couple of times regarding issues with insurance. Everyone I have ever talked with is friendly and professional. I highly recommend this company!

When we met Maggie for the first time, our 2-year old daughter was non-verbal. After a short time with Lucy, Maggie realized that she had apraxia, so she worked with our daughter in our home twice a week with apraxia-based speech therapy. The improvement was astounding!! Lucy is currently thriving in school and talking up a storm! I could never thank Maggie and everyone at Fundamental Communications enough for changing our daughter's life!
