Debra K

Blanche Buchwald has been my son’s occupational therapist for quite some time now. I can’t even begin to describe how grateful I am for everything she has done for my son. She has changed his life and our life forever. She is so caring, kind, patient and thorough. She really takes the time to get to know the child and what their needs are specifically. I have been through many occupational therapists, and it was a blessing to finally find someone who has helped my son thrive and grow so much! She has restored our faith and changed our lives forever. After seeing how well my son did, I started taking my daughter there as well for sensory and anxiety disorder. She has improved so much she is confident, calm and most importantly the skills she has learned have carried over in other places she was struggling with. 
My son who has autism and expressive speech delays has also been going to wonder kids therapy for speech, her speech therapist Cynthia is incredible. She is so patient and supportive. She took the time to build rapport with my son and create a plan that works best for him, he is able to communicate in way that I’ve never seen. She is so talented and truly a miracle worker. It has truly been amazing to see how much he can communicate with us now and the skills he has learned since working with Cynthia. Wonder kids therapy center really feels like home. It is a therapeutic calming, supportive and loving environment that offers a number of Services.  I wouldn’t trust my kids with anyone else. Thank you to Wonder Kids Therapy Center for helping our family. You are my kids heroes💙💖
