“Mind of a Sponge”

Dianesia's speech therapy storyDiane Morgan clearly does not look her age but she is a grandmother with seven grandchildren. She regularly takes granddaughter  Dianesia, age 7, for speech pathology treatment at Jacksonville Speech and Hearing Center.  Dianesia’s older sister, Tavaria, also came to Jacksonville Speech and Hearing Center when she was younger.

“Dianesia started attending Christ the King school this year and her teacher recommended the speech pathology treatments to help her,” Diane said.  “She has been attending treatments since the start of school and we’ve all noticed an improvement.”

Young Dianesia likes to visit Jacksonville Speech and Hearing Center and thinks of it as fun. She also likes reading, is a quick learner and good with math.

Speech and hearing“It’s important to get the help when they are young,” explains Diane.  “This will help her through school and life. It’s doing it the right way.”

“I hear her sit and play with her dolls and I can hear what she is learning,” Diane added. “It’s a big change.”

“As my daughter says, they have a mind of a sponge when they are young.,” Diane said. “You have to grab them and teach them early in life.”
