Ana has been an integral part of my daughters therapy team. She has true gift for connecting with children who are neurologically challenged and has brought a lot of fun and joy to our home. My daughter enjoys her time with her each week and I feel that she has been very beneficial for her. My daughter relaxes and responds through her facial expressions and her smile. I can say without a doubt that Ana has helped Kaylee a lot.
From the first session with Ana, she has been attentive and gentle with my daughter’s needs. My daughter has severe developmental delay that impacts quite a bit of her functional movements and she is non-verbal. So knowing what she likes and doesn’t like requires a therapist who takes the time to really tune into her body language, facial expressions and sounds. Ana makes slow, almost intuitive adjustments in her music sessions with my daughter to ensure she is benefiting from the therapy. She pushes her to interact and challenges her, but in a way that is encouraging, never belittling. She treats both of us with kindness and respect. Thank you Ana for those musical break through moments – they are a gift.
