My son has been receiving speech services from Mrs. Koslowske (warmly known as Mrs. Kos) for the last 7 years. When he first started meeting with her, he could only say a handful of words that were very difficult to understand if you weren’t familiar with him. It didn’t take long for Mrs. Kos to not only understand him, but show him a different way of communicating so it was beneficial to everyone. He struggled with people understanding him and also developed a stutter, but Mrs. Kos has shown him ways to combat these issues. I’m sure there are millions of speech therapists to choose from, but the thing that separates Mrs. Kos from others is her drive to help the students she provides services for. I remember running into her at school one day and she stopped to tell me about the research she was doing for my son’s particular speech issues and how she was going to change his sessions to incorporate some of the new things she learned. I already loved her, but that made me cherish her. She genuinely cares about her students’ progression and I am thankful he has her.
My son was diagnosed with a Speech delay in pre-school. Since then Mrs. Koslowske has been his Speech teacher. He is now in third grade and I can really see his progress in his speech. Mrs. Kos has provided him with all the tools and strategies he needs to improve his speech. One of the things I really admire about Mrs. Kos is how patient she is and the different ideas she brings to the table to make her students succeed!!! I cannot wish for a better Speech therapist for my son!!Thank you so much Mrs. Koslowske for all that you do, it’s greatly appreciated by all of us parents!!!
My son from pre K began his speech therapy lessons with Mrs K, now he is in 2nd grade and for me it is a pride to see all the progress he has made, even more so when we are a family that only speaks Spanish. Mrs Kos has great experience and immense love for her work. I feel that she cares that each child progresses and improves. My son loves her very much and with her he has learned to express himself and improve every day. I am grateful that God has put her in our path, seeing my son’s progress fills me with happiness.
