We want to thank the Bridge Therapy team specially Mrs Maggie for all the help you gave to our daughter with speech delay. Everybody at bridge therapy has been outstanding and reachable. Humane. Empathetic with the feelings of a mother who is new to this journey. The sessions run for 50 minutes and the installations are pristine clean. They will take your child inside their office packed with lots of toys and books and you will wait in the lounge. Our daughter quickly got familiar to this scenario and Mrs Maggie always had her smiling and happy. Our daughter has progressed so much and we strongly believe it’s because of the help of Mrs Maggie. We recommend this company for your speech needs. One important thing to keep in mind: they don’t work with insurance but you can still submit a claim and see if they were to reimburse.

Bridge Therapy is what we’ve been looking for. Our son needed one-on-one tailored sessions. The owner interviewed us beforehand to determine how to help him. In the past, other places would schedule sessions without first determining how to help our son and he would receive inconsistent therapy with different therapists every session. Now he is receiving exactly what he needs with Brittany and Bridge Therapy - consistency, support, and improvement!

We had a great experience at Bridge Therapy, first with our evaluation with Brittany and with our sessions with Maggie. My 4 year old really enjoyed going to speech therapy as she had such a fun time. We could only stay for a short time because we are moving out of the area but saw improvement in her speech in only a few months.

My daughter has apraxia. Once she started working with Sam and Brittney at Bridge Therapy her life was changed forever. She went from mostly nonverbal communication, because most people could not understand her to using speech as her main form of communication. She could barely say a 2 word sentence to using words with a lot more than 2 words. She became understandable to people who had never met her. These therapists are truly amazing. I don’t know what would have happened without them. My son had some trouble with pronouncing the sounds th and L. He worked with Maggie and Brittney and he did great. Within a few months he was able to pronounce those sounds and no longer needed speech. I could not recommend this practice enough. They truly care about the kids and they are able to produce results that as a parent you can only dream of.

Really loved this place, I saw such an improvement in my child's communication. Our therapist was Maggie and she was amazing, so patient, professional and informative. I felt like the communication was great. When we started I liked how the focus was on making my child feel comfortable and not pushy to get things moving along. I really appreciate it. I would recommend this place. It really is beneficial and the results do show even with once a week meetings I saw my child have more confidence in speaking and speaking clearly. I agree with another comment about Tania being very responsive and so well organized. Even Samantha was great to speak with when we were starting the therapy. Our family is very thankful for this place. We had to stop for now because of financial reasons but will definitely be returning in the future because my child was greatly benefiting from the therapy. We love Maggie and hope to see her again in the future when we return.

My 5 year old daughter has worked with Maggie both virtually and in-person for the past year, and we cannot recommend Maggie and Bridge Therapy highly enough! Maggie is a consummate professional who's incredibly adept at engaging children every step of the way. Her warmth, patience, and flexibility are remarkable. Maggie has always been highly attentive to my daughter's needs and progress, and the effort and preparation that she put into each session was quite evident. Bridge Therapy's administrator, Tania, is also a standout and must be mentioned. She's meticulously organized and responsive -- truly one of the most impressive organizational gatekeepers I've ever met. The practice as a whole is clearly run with great care and competence -- I will always wholeheartedly recommend their services!

Words cannot begin to describe the gratitude that we have for Samantha and her staff at Bridge Therapy. The work that she has done with our son (3 1/2-year-old now) over the past year has been nothing short of a miracle. Samantha has been diligent, passionate and determined to help him in every way possible and her work has far exceeded our expectations. This has been a team effort and congratulations to my wife, Samantha and our son for all of their hard work. Today he graduated!!! We will continue to stay in touch and work with Samantha as needed. Again, THANK YOU for everything. S&K 12/20/22

Bridge Therapy is phenomenal. We have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Brittany for our child’s speech therapy, and found her to be absolutely delightful. She is not only knowledgeable and professional; she is kind, extremely patient, and somehow made virtual sessions fun! My child looked forward to speech, and felt proud of his accomplishments. In addition to the sessions, Brittany always took the time to answer my questions, and went above and beyond in providing additional resources to support us when appropriate. On many occasions, I gushed to other Bridge Therapy team members (who are also amazing) about how wonderful she is. I absolutely would recommend Brittany!

You couldn't find a kinder, more caring, and effective team than the one at Bridge Therapy. Our daughter was diagnosed with a speech delay at a young age, but thanks to Maggie's diligent work with her, now she never seems to stop talking. More than just catching her up, Bridge Therapy gave her the tools to keep learning and practicing new speech skills as she develops. And she had a blast doing it! We are beyond grateful for everything they've done for our family.

During covid Samantha held an online session for free and offered many great ideas that I was able to use. Even after that session, I had some further questions and she graciously answered all my questions and sent me more resources for me to use with my son. At that time I was not even a client. Fast forward to the last few months, my son became a client with Maggie. We have never done virtual speech therapy, so we weren't sure what to expect. Maggie is AMAZING!!!! I explained to her that we've seen many therapists and tried many techniques & were still struggling. She immediately came up with a great way to start. She does a great job relating to my son, taking time to find out what his interests are so her games are related to that as well as her screen background. That may seem like a small thing, but my son gets pretty excited about it and I appreciate the extra time she puts into making my son excited about speech. At one point, my son was getting frustrated and she took the time to talk to him and help him realize what he's doing and he felt much better after that. She's always positive and always has an idea if one thing isn't working, she has a back up plan to help him succeed. I really can't say enough great things about Maggie. I'm grateful we found her!

"My experience with Bridge Therapy was amazing. Maggie was the perfect fit for my son. She was great! She helped him achieve his goals, which in turn helped him with his confidence. His speech improved dramatically and with results being seen quickly. Maggie is very knowledgeable and provides excellent feedback. There are not enough words to thank her."
- Mother of teenage son with speech disorder

"I had a wonderful experience working with Bridge Therapy this year. Mrs. Jamie was fantastic! She made a true connection with my daughter allowing her to feel comfortable and focus on improving her speech errors. My daughter looked forward to her speech session every week! Communication was wonderful and I always got great feedback when I inquired about how to support progress at home. I truly appreciate Mrs. Jamie’s dedication and the immense progress my daughter has made this year! I’m excited to send her to kindergarten so confident!”
- Mother of four year-old daughter with speech delay

"I would highly recommend Bridge Therapy. My child has been working with Mrs. Maggie for the past year and she is amazing with younger children. The sessions are set up that the children are being taught through games so they are engaged while also learning. The feedback at the end of the session is detailed and Mrs. Maggie always answers all of my questions or sets a time to address my concerns. I have seen a tremendous improvement in pronunciation and clarity of speech. I see the improvement in my child’s speech and his confidence.”

- Mother of 5-year-old son with an articulation disorder

"Maggie is wonderful! My son has been having speech therapy with her for 6/7 months and she has helped him tremendously. He enjoys playing while learning with her and I would highly recommend."

- Mother of 4-year-old son with a phonological disorder

"I feel so fortunate that my friend highly recommended my daughter's current Speech Language Pathologist - Samantha Novick. She is so talented and dynamic as a therapist. Samantha is also extremely confident in her field, loving with my daughter and uses very creative approaches to speech therapy. Most importantly, my daughter has made huge improvements with her speech. Samantha genuinely cares about my daughter and demonstrates this quality each and every speech therapy session. She is amazing! As a teacher and mother, I highly recommend her!”
- Mother of four year-old daughter with moderate phonological disorder

"Mrs. Jamie is amazing with children. She is so kind, knowledgeable and patient. My son is on the spectrum and she helped him immensely. He was unable to communicate and learned how to express himself with AAC. Now he is able to talk! I'll never forget what she did to help him!”
- Mother of eight year-old with autism spectrum disorder

"Absolutely the BEST! My son was in need of therapy for several speech deficits. We spent one year with another therapist with no results. We left that therapist feeling frustrated and hopeless. I had a friend recommend Samantha Novick to me for my son's speech therapy needs. We began therapy with Ms. Sam and within 3 months saw results! Within a year, at age 4, my son began to read! He was clearly communicating, reading and became a more social and a happier child! Now at age 6, in the 1st grade, he is reading at a fourth grade level! Ms. Sam lovingly worked with him, catered to his specific needs and guided him through a plan that has corrected his speech and set him up for success in the future! I am so thankful for her and her team!”

- Mother of 6 year-old with speech disorder

“Our son was born with speech apraxia. He has received speech therapy services since age three. He is turning 17 this month. However, his progress wasn't as noticeable until Samantha started working with him about nine months ago. We did not realize that there is a significant difference between speech therapy and speech therapy for speech apraxia.

Samantha has been delivering personalized speech therapy that relies not only on the extensive initial evaluation, but a clear understanding of our son's interests, likes and dislikes. Her lessons plans include his frequently used words, as well as new words based on schoolwork and our son's interests.

Ms. Novick's caring and unequivocal understanding of speech apraxia yielded measurable improvement in our son's speech that we haven't seen from any other therapist.”

- Parents of sixteen year-old son with childhood apraxia of speech

“With previous experience in speech therapy, we knew after our first phone conversation that Samantha was different. There was an instant comfort knowing that she would work with us to advocate for our daughter.

We knew early on that our daughter was a very quiet baby. We initially passed it off as just being her personality. We knew she had a problem when she was not meeting milestones for speech and getting frustrated that she could not communicate her needs. She also didn’t actively participate in our family and generally chose to sit on the side and watch. We also had a lot of friends and family tell us that she would talk when she was ready.

After getting over the initial hesitation, we were able to quickly start therapy and have seen huge improvements. Samantha has truly changed not only my daughters life but our whole family. Our daughter’s personality now shines, she is able to “use her words” to communicate and jumps right into our family fun.”

- Mother of two-year old daughter with significant speech delay

“Samantha Novick is an exceptional speech pathologist and one of the finest human beings we have ever met. She possesses the skills of a healer along with the compassion and dedication of a saint. These qualities are apparent to all within moments of meeting Samantha and watching her engage her patients with encouragement, patience and superb speech therapy skills.

Our Sister Julie had a severe stroke resulting in pronounced aphasia. With Samantha's help, Julie is having breakthroughs on a regular basis. She adores Samantha and looks forward to their visits and to working hard together towards their goals. Samantha Novick is a very special person; her professional skills and commitment to her patients will continue to be a source of healing and inspiration to all who have the good fortune to work with her.”

- Siblings of 60 year-old sister with aphasia (post-stroke)

“My son was diagnosed with a severe phonological disorder when he was two. We began seeing Mrs. Sam for speech therapy soon after, and all I can say is that she worked miracles with his expressive language. I fully expected speech to be a part of his life for years to come, but just a year later, after seeing Mrs. Sam for 1.5 hours each week, he graduated and was talking just like any other normal three year old.

My other two children were treated by Mrs. Sam as well during that year -- one with an articulation issue and one with a mild speech delay.

Mrs. Sam is truly the BEST! She is so sweet and loving, and makes speech therapy fun. All three of my children looked forward to getting to go see her each week, as did I. She always kept me informed and active in their progress with home practice and feedback after each session.

Mrs. Sam was made to be an SLP and I highly recommend her! It is the greatest gift to be able to understand your child, and I'm thankful to Mrs. Sam for that gift. She is invaluable to my family, and we love and miss her lots!”

- Mother of three year-old son with severe phonological disorder, one year-old daughter with speech delay, and eight year-old son with articulation disorder

“I highly recommend Samantha Novick. She interacts so well with my son. She’s patient and genuinely cares about him. We have known her now for a long time and she has been a wonderful support for my son and our family. If you’re looking for someone who is going to support you and your child, even beyond his or her speech and language needs, then you should call Samantha.”

- Mother of nine year-old son with autism spectrum disorder

“Our family has known Samantha Novick for nearly five years. Over that time we have grown to consider her a vital resource and therapist for our children. Her methods have proved useful in a variety of situations with regards to speech, apraxia, and overall autism-related difficulties. More important than any of her very talented skills, is her pure love of what she does. Our kids absolutely adore her and love working with her. Indeed, Samantha pours her heart, soul, and mind into everything she does, which is why she is so successful in her work. Her name comes up time and time again in our community of doctors, advocates, and other therapists, as they too can’t recommend her enough. We couldn’t be more grateful for all she has done for our family and recommend her to all who seek her guidance and support.”
