"Bonnie Leaf is an amazing SLP. She is beyond passionate about what she does and it shows in the results of the children she works with. Bonnie is energetic/fun and accomplishes so much in her sessions. She has shared her knowledge with me, modeled for me, and given me the skills that I need to support children effectively. I can never thank her enough for teaching me and setting me up for success in my job as a Speech-Language Assistant."Jillayne D.
"When we met Bonnie, my son was a very shy, cautious little boy with very few words. With her guidance and support, he has become a confident communicator volunteering to answer questions in the classroom and readily sharing his stories with others. We are very grateful for her skills, guidance and encouragement."Gayle V., Parent
"Bonnie is the most exceptional SLP that we have had the privilege of working with. Her play based, interactive approach paired with strong intervention skills positively impacts children with communication challenges. Bonnie connected with our daughter and implemented motor learning principals into therapy in a fun, engaging and meaningful way. She gave our daughter her voice."Kim F., Parent
“I was surprised and very happy to see how Bonnie’s therapy techniques made a significant difference for my son. He is now saying words clearer than he has ever done before and we are able to add new words to his vocabulary using the techniques we were taught. We couldn’t be happier with the progress he is showing.”Trina S., Parent
“I cannot even begin to say enough good about Bonnie and what she’s meant to me and my family. Bonnie came into our lives at a time when I was so incredibly worried about my little boy having already been in speech therapy for many months and not seeing any progress. Not only was Bonnie able to identify why my son was struggling learning to talk but she was able to implement techniques specific to his area of difficulty. She knew just what my son needed, and for the very first time we started to see progress. Bonnie is an absolute expert in her field. I will forever be thankful for all the support and hope Bonnie has given us. I truly feel she has changed our lives."Robin L., Parent
Feedback from Workshop Participants
“Wow! Thank-you so much for the fantastic Apraxia workshop you provided to our Speech and Language team this past Friday! I had so many “ah ha” moments as you reviewed case studies and best practice guidelines for Apraxia treatment. The Motor Learning Principles and the importance of “error-less” practice were huge take aways for me. I also loved the idea of using gross motor movements to support blending sounds. You brought our speech team together and re-energized us all! Thank-you so much!"Marla B.

I love how she provided the just right amount of video clips to explain therapy hierarchy, movement breaks to explain how our brains work, allowed for questions throughout the workshop and gave us opportunities to personalize the information to current clients."
