we went to Frisco feeding and Brittany was our therapist , I can not thank her enough for what she did for my child , she is perfect , very professional , very knowledgeable , she pointed straight to my child issues with significant lip , tongue as well as buccal ties , we had significant speech\feeding delays as my son was missed diagnosed by his pediatrician who did not even look once at my child mouth even though we were complaining about him having feeding difficulties since day 1. My whole point is if your child needs help Brittany is the one who can make a change. I'm so glad we met and worked with her. Keep up the great job Brittany 🙂

I can't not say enough good things about Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy, especially Ms. Keri Bartel. I would give her 10 stars if I could. We've been seeing two therapists there since 2019, and Keri is the one we stayed with for almost two years. All three of my kids had services with her at different points for different concerns. Now they have all "graduated" but we'll forever cherish what we've learned from her. Keri is professional, knowledgeable, considerate, and a good listener. She's alway very spot-on and we can see results quickly just in a few sessions. For example, at some point one of our kids wouldn't open his mouth at all for solids. We tried different foods but nothing worked. Keri did a simple evaluation and quickly found out he had a very severe gagging problem, which is likely to be the reason he didn't want to take solids. Then she taught us some exercises to practice at home. Within a few weeks the gagging was significantly reduced and he started taking solids! It almost felt like a miracle to us. Another thing that we appreciate a lot is that she not only provides service to our kids, but also educates us parents. Many techniques she taught us are timeless and priceless for parenting in general. We always feel safe and comfortable to talk to her about what's going on with our kids, knowing we'll get an answer--if the issues are not feeding/speech related, she would give us referrals and point us to the right direction. We feel very lucky to have her as our therapist.

I cannot recommend Frisco Feeding enough! Especially Ciera who helped my son from a few weeks old till almost 3 months with his latch. We went to multiple lactation appointments, lip and tongue tie appointments and many other things. Ciera was able to help with exercises to open his jaw and protrude his tongue. She was very kind and supportive and went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable. She is very knowledgable on breastfeeding and supported me with information to further my journey. Frisco Feeding helped me so much and I am very thankful!

Tamika is WONDERFUL. She is warm and welcoming, a top-notch professional, compassionate, calm, reassuring, genuine and kind. She has a wealth of knowledge but has a skillful way of breaking it down for easy to understand guidance and advice. She taught me crucial things I hadn’t gotten from the hospital IBCLCs like the right bottles/nipples for successful breastfeeding, suck patterns and training exercises and more. She also helped me get the right flange size for my breast pump. She truly knew and did it all!She always made sure I felt confident leaving our sessions, and often answered questions via text or email. I knew she truly cared about helping me and my baby in our feeding journey. I felt comfortable with her, like no question was silly- as though I was chatting with a trusted friend. My time with Tamika was an invaluable resource as a first time mom navigating the challenges of feeding my baby. I owe so much of my breastfeeding success to Tamika and my weekly time with her; I cannot recommend her enough!

We love Keri Schoenemann at Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy. My 11-year-old saw Keri for myofunctional therapy the past several months. Keri is so professional, nice and great with kids. My son liked going to see her and after the evaluation, couldn’t wait to continue seeing her. Not only is she very knowledgeable on myofunctional therapy, she is very process oriented and her treatment plan was very logical and easy for my son to practice at home. She is one of the few therapists I’ve ever seen that actually sets goals and measures them. This really impressed me. She knew from the evaluation what the problems were, how we would go about working on them, the specific things we needed to do to achieve these goals, and after the tongue release, the process we would follow to strengthen the tongue muscles and work on endurance. Her ability to explain how things worked and why we were doing them were easy for us to understand. I am so glad we decided to go through the therapy prior to and after the tongue release. My son now has the correct resting posture for his tongue, can breathe through his nose, and swallow his food without remnants staying in his mouth. I highly recommend Keri. She’s one of the best!

It was so wonderful working with Ariel! Our two month old had bad reflux and he was constantly struggling to feed. He would make gagging and choking noises and would consistently chomp at the bottle rather than suck. Ariel was so patient and thorough in our evaluation. She suggested a visit to an ENT to rule out any airway obstructions and then started working with us on exercises we could do with our baby to help him latch to the bottle and feed better. We have truly seen a night and day difference in how our baby feeds. We went to several doctors looking for solutions prior to seeing Ariel and it was such a relief to finally find someone who could help us along our journey. Ariel truly was the person who helped us out the most and got our baby to make the progress he needed. I can’t thank or recommend her enough!

Ariel was so wonderful with our daughter. She related well with her and our dtr showed quick progress. She was accommodating to our schedule, she always responded promptly to emails and when we were gone out of town she arranged therapy via zoom so that she did not regress. The billing department was also very helpful with questions and figuring out coverage. Highly rec.

We have been with Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy for just shy of a year. My four-year-old daughter was diagnosed with autism at the age of two. When we first began therapy here my daughter was almost completely non-verbal. Over the course of this year, she has worked with both Shelly and Keri. Our daughter still has a long way to go verbally but she now attempts to repeat any word you directly ask her to. Additionally, her spontaneous speech has increased greatly. She will now walk up to us and clearly make one-word requests. Shelly specifically holds my daughter accountable to follow through with what she is asking of her. She also makes her functional language relevant to my daughter's interests. Shelly is consistently thinking of the next steps and how to move my daughter up the ladder. Keri specifically is a wealth of knowledge. She is well versed in both speech and feeding therapy as well as general problem solving for my daughter's specific needs. Lately, Keri has been doing zoom sessions with just me to help me work around a variety of hurdles. For example, how to address oral sensory needs, how to prepare my daughter for airplane mask regulations, or how to "scaffold" her at home playtime into continued language building. She's been an invaluable resource for our day-to-day beyond therapy sessions.

Tamika was my sons feeding therapist. From day 1 till our last day she was there and very attentive to my son. She picked up concerns that my son was having and got us the right doctors to address and help him! We loved Tamika and would recommend her hands down!

Let me start off by saying my son has been in speech therapy since he was about 2 years old due to speech delays as he was diagnosed with autism when he was 3. So, we have seen many different therapists. We just moved to the area and decided to give FFST a try as they were recommended by his ABA center. My son began working with Maggie, and I must say she is amazing. She is so sweet, patient, and kind. Also, she really cared about our son, and the best ways to help him. We have seen progress in his speech, with him being able to request for more things than he has been able to do in the past. I highly recommend Maggie with FFST. She will listen to all your concerns, and do her best to help your child!

Keri is absolutely amazing! We took our daughter to see her starting at 9 months due to feeding issues. Keri was so helpful listening to all of our concerns and provided so many tools and tips to help us along the way. Not only did Keri help my daughter develop confidence and strength with eating, she also helped ease my fears and anxiety along the way, and for that I am so so thankful. My daughter loved coming and lit up everytime we came to see Keri. While we were so thrilled to see our daughter become a much better eater, it was so bittersweet saying goodbye. We cannot thank her enough!

Ciera was so nice and helped my daughter in such a short amount of time! My daughter had a lip and tongue tie and would not take bottles. Not only is she taking bottles consistently with no issues, but she has better oral motor skills now after working with Ciera for a few weeks!

We took our one-year-old to Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy for feeding help. Tamika is our therapist. She is very knowledgeable and caring. when we first started kid is so badly rejecting to eat, she also has a bad gag reflex, she used to throw everything out once she started gagging. Tamika directed us on how to address these problems one by one. she took time in understanding our kid and created a therapy plan. She gave us some tips and directions. some really worked. we did see good progress. I would definitely recommend this place.

My son started therapy with Ms. Sound and she is absolutely great. I highly recommend her as your child’s therapy provider. The reason for my 1 star is the experience I have had with the office and billing department. They have charged my credit card on file without getting my prior authorization. They had taken it upon them selves to bill me and not provide me with a receipt and explanation for amount that was charged. Let me add it was not a bogus charge BUT there was no information about billing and payments that were my responsibility explained and informed up front . I was under the impression that my insurance was paying for the session which is partly true. After the initial evaluation, I got a call saying “ your insurance was approved we can go ahead and schedule appointments” . There was absolutely no discussiion on how I would like to pay for the Out of pocket balance. In addition ABSOLUTELY NO INVOICE OR RECEIPTS we’re provided till today. After the charges that was brought to my attention today ( the charges were on my husbands card not mine,) I called and asked the office what the charges were for I was then informed that the charges were out of pocket balance, which they put on the credit card that did not have my name on it . This card information was provided on initial evaluation. I was not asked if “ the card on file” was the form of payment I wanted to use . They assumed it was without giving me a heads up or informing me before hand. Finally after I called and informed them that I have no received any email that has an invoice / receipts I was told “ I email those receipts after I charge them” . This is incorrect because I never got any receipts via email from them till today. I just want everyone who is considering using their services to read this review so you know what you are getting to to before hand and hopefully parents that are using this service , please check your statements, I know I have too Will be checking all the statements today with the invoice that has been emailed to me so far today . I learnt from the the person that does the billing that they charge us before even billing / invoices are even generated. Again, please know I’m not saying I was charged and I shouldn’t have I just feel that I should have been informed and given a heads up before starting services and provided with receipts and a explanation of what I am being charged for. It would have helped me Mange and budget myself weekly better. I have a right to know what I am paying for. They get 1 star for their professionalism or should I say the lack of it.Update: Spoke to the owner Janine Roddy and she explained her side. After speaking with her I believe the invoices and filling paperwork that was sent must have just got stuck in the cloud somewhere. She was very easy to talk to and I appreciated the fact that she owned up to the mistake . Moreover she seems to have an active role with her staff and clients. It does lead me to want to change my review because my initial review of 1 star was solely based on my understanding and experience of their business practices. Janine has helped me see that was just a misunderstanding and that my experience was based on a computer / email error.

My son worked with Keri for several months and made significant progress with eating under her care. She is kind, funny and absolutely brilliant in her field! She was always able to distill complicated concepts into easy-to-implement strategies. My son also absolutely adored her and didn't mind going to therapy at all because Miss Keri made it so fun! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Keri and Frisco Feeding!

Highly recommended Frisco Feeding & Speech, our daughter attended speech therapy sessions with Ms. Larson due to delays in language and articulation. Her progress surpassed our expectations and now she can’t stop talking. Ms. Larson was an excellent therapist and our daughter loves her. We are thankful for all she’s done to help our daughter.

Keri Bartel does amazing work with kids that are having eating issues. I have now had both of my kids work with her, and she has helped them tremendously. She works with them in a way that isn't traumatic or scary, and they look forward to seeing her every week! What she does really works, and I highly recommend her!

My son had a great experience receiving myofunctional therapy from Tamika which was recommended by my dentist for his Frenectomy Procedure. Tamika knows how to work well with children and was very patient with my son. I would recommend her to other parents looking for a Speech Pathologist who specializes in Myofunctuonal therapy, which is not easy to find!

As concerned parents of a child with delayed speech and having heard many opinions on what the root cause of the issue may be, we decided to take matters in our own hands as best as possible and seek professional assistance. After countless phone calls with speech professionals across the North Dallas area we finally came across Frisco Feeding and Speech Therapy. It was immediately clear that this was the organization that met our needs the best, and was going to be of the greatest help to us.We were extremely fortunate in getting to work with Keri, on whom we had read multiple positive reviews. Keri drafted a detailed personalized plan with tiered goals for our sessions, she thoroughly explained what and how we would accomplish the seemingly insurmountable mission ahead of us. Week after week of consistent and patient work with our little boy, we have seen so much progress it’s hard to believe that this is the same child that only had a 20 word vocabulary a year ago. Keri has helped to develop his communication to where we are working on sentence structure and multiple themes in a real conversation.This really has been a journey together with Keri and we can see how genuinely vested she is in our child’s progress and improvement. Now that he is in school, Keri provides us with an additional resource and sounding board as he acclimates to a social environment.We wholeheartedly recommend Frisco Feeding and Speech Therapy and Keri Schoenemann in particular, as an organization and professional who care for the improvement and growth of your child as much as you as parents. We could not have made the progress we have without their support and guidance.

Tamika saved breastfeeding for me. I sought out Tamika after seeing 3 lactation consultants and being encouraged to do exclusive pumping by my pediatrician. Prior to her, no one could tell me why my child was unable to successfully breastfeed or feed well from a bottle. Tamika diagnosed the root cause for both issues, developed and helped implement an effective treatment, and collaborated with other providers to make our feeding story a success in only SIX visits. I felt like she was a part of my family’s team and that even if breastfeeding wasn’t successful, she would be able to effectively help us transition to exclusive pumping. I’m so thankful for her help.

From Kevin and Jheri Lloyd. As they say, it takes a village and Ms. Keri at Frisco Feeding Therapy has been a part of our village for nearly 6 months. We truly value and appreciate how far she has helped our daughter progress with chewing, tongue placement, all due to a moderate tongue tie. Her practical application approach has been proven in the changes we witness today. Keri has good energy, she is encouraging, sharp, intuitive,a problem solver and patient. Our little one enjoys her time with her and they have formed a cute little bond. When I text Keri at 830 pm about a small eating victory and she responded with enthusiasm and praise for daughter I could have cried. That's a person that cares and isnt just doing a job. She is really special. Thank you Keri!!.

Emily has been phenomenal with our daughter. We had another therapist prior to Emily and we have been very happy with Emily. You can tell she truly cares about our daughter and isn’t just working for the paycheck. Our daughter loves her time with Emily and always speaks of her as a friend.Though our daughter is still a stubborn wonder, Emily has taught her many tricks to identify how she can handle certain situations. Emily didn’t follow the curriculum intended for our daughters age but instead transitioned to what our daughter really needed.Our daughter is still selective with her food but meal time has improved leaps and bounds. We attended food therapy for a little over a year. Overall we are very happy to have had Emily in our lives and any family working with her is lucky to have her.

Ciera Gianni was a God send for us. Like many people in desperation for their children in a time of need, I google’d speech therapists in North Texas. As many popped up, Frisco Feeding and Speech Therapy had amazing reviews. I made a phone call when my daughter was just a couple of months old and within no time, we had our first appointment with Ciera. My daughter had feeding issues which Ciera identified with a tongue and lip tie as well as silent acid reflux. She really helped us so much navigating through a very difficult season. She also had the best recommendation for a dentist she referred us to that performed the tongue and lip tie procedure right when all the chaos happened when covid first started that identified her needs as an emergency so she didn’t have to wait any longer as many places were completely shut down at that time. My daughter was eventually discharged after much progress, and about a year later, my daughter was delayed in speech- really in all of her milestones. We reached back out to Ciera, and again, she got my daughter where she needed to be and is all caught up! We are so truly thankful for her! I HIGHLY recommend you reach out to Ciera because you will see results!

Tamika, our therapist, was amazing! Not knowing much about feeding therapy, she always made sure we understood what was going on and how, what we were doing, would help. She also made sure we always understood what exercises we needed to do and let us practice in our appointments to ensure we were comfortable at home. Any question we had, Tamika answered them or found the answer and would reach out later. She also made sure to work with our schedule, as well as always make sure we were comfortable and every precaution to keep health a priority. When we started the process, we had a little boy who couldn’t eat or move his tongue around properly. We were still feeding every 2 hours(8 months in). Now, after 3 short months, our baby is eating like a champ! He can even drink out of a straw. Everyone in our house appreciates the sleep we now get and we will never be able to thank Tamika enough for all the work she put in to help our son! Can’t recommend enough!

We went to see Tamika about 3 months after my son was born, and we continued to see her until he was about 9 months old. My son is almost a year old now, and going to see her is still one of the best things we’ve done for him. She helped us fix issues that we were having with breastfeeding, and she started us on our journey with solids. As a first time mom, the guidance and support she provided was invaluable. She was always willing to listen and help us make changes that worked for us, and I always felt like she cared about my son and our progress. I don’t know that we would still be breastfeeding without her. I really can’t say enough good things. If you feel like something is off in your feeding journey, go see Tamika. You won’t regret it.

Tamika was wonderful to work with and a wealth of knowledge about my Jackson’s grade 4 tongue tie. We had a lot of struggles with him eating and she walked us through it all. We finally got to the root of his issues and were able to fix all his feeding issues. Appreciate her so much. If you are lucky enough to get Tamika, you and your child are in great hands : )

We can’t say enough wonderful things about Keri Bartel with Frisco Feeding & Speech. She has been working with our 9-year-old daughter for the last year and a half on various feeding and speech issues. Yesterday was our last session and it was such a bitter sweet day for us. Keri has become such a wonderful friend to our daughter and family. She is so gifted as a speech therapist. We were always amazed how each week Keri could pinpoint even the slightest correction our daughter needed to make in a certain area and how that would make such a difference with her feeding and speech. Our daughter now has more confidence when speaking in front of and to others. We will be forever grateful for our time with Keri and can’t recommend her enough if you’re looking for a speech therapist.

My son was very blessed to have Ms. Brittany as his speech pathologist. She is very amazing at what she does, and definitely excels at establishing relationships with the children. Her ability to relate, assist, and guide parents through being able to navigate through the complexities of speech delay is most definitely her calling. My wife and I enjoyed our experience seeing our son progress under the guidance of Ms. Brittany. He started at around the of 1 3/4 years old and was having difficulty speaking, establishing eye contact, and basic communication skills. He is now 2.5 years old and is able to speak much more words than when we first started, as well as establish appropriate purposeful eye contact during social interactions. We will forever be grateful for Ms. Brittany and are saddened to have to part ways due to conflicting schedules on our end. We highly recommend Ms. Brittany for any parent seeking assistance for their child in speech!

My son has been seeing Keri at FFS for awhile now and we cannot say enough great things about her! Emerson looks forward to his session every week and is always excited to spend time at the clinic. I love that they offer Telehealth visits as well when we can’t physically make it to the office. If you are looking for speech services, I highly recommend Keri at FFS!Edited to add: From the beginning of our speech therapy journey to the end, Keri has been wonderful with Emerson each step of the way! We are so sad to be relocating and leaving FFS. I still can’t recommend Keri highly enough for speech and feeding therapy!

I was referred to Frisco Feeding & Speech by my child’s pediatrician when I noticed his dysfluency. I was very nervous because my child was very shy and I didn’t think he’d comply with therapy, but we needed to do something. We went to see Ariel Vovakes and I was so relieved. Even though the first session my kiddo was shy, she didn’t push him out of his comfort zone. Because of that, the following sessions he was more at ease and started communicating comfortably with Ariel. This made him more successful with using the tools she gave us to help with his dysfluency. We as parents used these tools at home daily to reinforce what he had learned. Ariel was always very professional and easy to get in touch with if we needed anything! I have to give a shout-out to the people in the office there too, they were always so helpful with insurance info and super easy to communicate with. The facility was always very clean and organized. My child has since been discharged from there care as we saw much improvement with his speech. I’d highly recommend Frisco Feeding & Speech!

It has been such a great experience working with Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy. The front office is kind and responsive, making scheduling and billing easy and efficient. And my boys have both looked forward to seeing Ms. Keri and Ms. Ariel for their speech articulation sessions. These ladies have a gift for making therapy fun and positive, and I can see my children's progress each week. Keri and Ariel are also wonderful about communicating with parents and caretakers about updates and goals after each session. We've had a very positive experience with Frisco Feeding & Speech and I would highly recommend them for speech or feeding therapy.

We love Frisco Feeding & Speech! Our therapist was Ariel and she was the best! She set out clear & obtainable goals to help my son improve his feeding, and each week she helped us achieve those goals! She was very professional, kind, and genuinely cared for my son. From evaluation to discharge, the process was very smooth and everyone we spoke to was pleasant and helpful. We were thankful for my son to have met his goals, but we were sad to not see Ariel anymore! We highly recommend Ariel and Frisco Feeding & Speech!

My son received services from Frisco Feeding an Speech Therapy from the ages of two years old to almost 4 years old. My son has a relatively rare speech disorder called apraxia of speech and during this time we received EXCEPTIONAL service from the entire care team. Our son went from nearly non-verbal at two years old to having many words, phrases and being able to communicate and be understood – I attribute his progress and his current speech efforts to Jeanine and her team. From the beginning, Jeanine, the founder and clinic owner, was able to quickly and easily establish a great rapport with my son (which was not our experiences at other practices as we tried several before finding Jeanine & team). Jeanine supported us in aggressive daily therapy. Our son received services from four therapists in the practice (due to the frequency) and Jeanine coordinated the plan of care seamless between all providers in her practice. She even took the extra step to coordinate with occupational therapy and preschool. I was impressed by the level of clinical expertise, compassion and commitment from the entire team and from Jeanine personally. Her team made ST fun for our son! During these almost two years, Jeanine worked closely with our family and our son’s multidisciplinary care team (including teachers, OT, neurology, etc.) to ensure the team was coordinated in their approach. When our family moved away from DFW, were very sad to leave the strong group of speech therapists that provided care for our son. I would offer the highest level of recommendation and endorsement for Frisco Feeding and Speech Therapy and for Jeanine, Brittany, Shelly, and Elizabeth. I have only the upmost respect and trust with the whole team and highly recommend Jeanine and team for any speech or feeding delay, and in particular if your child has apraxia of speech. If we are ever in the area again, we would return to the practice without hesitation.

Highly Recommend for feeding therapy. Elizabeth Noji was great with my 6 years old who was afraid to even taste certain foods. She was able to connect, relate, and provide him and me with simple strategies that worked.

Hibah is amazing at Frisco Speech & feeding! My daughter loved her from the start and didn’t want to leave after her session was over. She gave us detailed updates of the session and what to expect and work at home. Highly recommend her.

Our daughter has been seeing Keri for feeding issues and anxiety for the past year, and we are very pleased with her progress. Keri is very compassionate, patient and always has a solution for any obstacles we face. She has really made an impact with our daughter to be more flexible, to think positively about food, and push herself out of her comfort zone. There have been times we have thought our daughter was never going to add foods to her diet, but Keri has changed that. We couldn’t recommend her enough!

I have had multiple therapists and Keri is by far the best. I have gotten the best results from working with her and she basically saved my life. I’ve gotten much healthier physically and mentally because of her. I love working with her.

My son worked with Tamika at the McKinney office for 7 months before we moved out of state. She was very knowledgeable and helped us to understand everything going on in a way that we could continue therapy at home when he wasn’t working with her in the office. My son got excited ever time I told him it was time to go see her. He progressed tremendously just within the short period we were able to work with Tamika. Our family will miss her greatly!

We contacted Frisco Speech because my daughter was becoming increasingly frustrated with not being understood by those around her. Only our immediate family members could understand what she was saying most of the time, and even we sometimes couldn’t understand what she was trying to tell us. After the initial assessment we were paired up with Ms. Keri, who laid out a clear plan for her speech development.Ms. Keri made our daughters appointments fun and engaging, most times my daughter was excited to go to her speech appointment. Even during COVID restrictions and virtual appointments, Ms. Keri made the sessions engaging and as fun as possible. She took the time to really get to know our daughter and what made her excited and ready to learn.We couldn’t be happier with the results that we experienced with Ms. Keri! Our daughter saw Ms. Keri for almost two years, and the grow that we saw during that time is remarkable. She recently started Kindergarten and is absolutely thriving! Both adults and kids alike can understand everything she is saying and her confidence is through the roof!Many of my friends asked me why we didn’t just use the free services that the local schools provide, but we didn’t feel like they could have provided the attention and care that we received with Ms. Keri. At the end of the day the cost was well worth it to us. We couldn’t recommend Ms. Keri more highly!

My daughter was suffering from anxiety related feeding issues and Frisco Feeding & Speech therapy was a life saver! I had run out of ways to help her and turned to FFS for help. Tamika, our therapist was wonderful! After a few sessions, my daughter was very comfortable with her and trusted her. Tamika created a safe space for her at therapy and my daughter would look forward to her sessions. They taught her strategies and ways to cope with trying new foods. It was life changing for us and we no longer suffer through anxious tear filled mealtimes. Thank you Tamika and FFS!!

It doesn’t get any better thank Ciera! As a first time mom, I felt very lost when we found out my son had significant oral ties. She not only walked us through the procedure but, helped us with aftercare and stretches. She also went one step further and really helped during starting solids. Fast forward to today my son is 1 and thriving thanks to Ciera! Couldn’t recommend her enough to parents looking for someone in their corner!

Had a most wonderful experience with FFST! Tamika came in to our life with our six month old and our very first session we made a huge shift in our feeding strategies that worked magically. Three months later, we’re right where we are supposed to be and I’m sad to not be seeing her anymore!!! So thankful to have found her.

Ms. Ariel is an outstanding speech therapist and she keeps my 4 year old daughter engaged and having fun while she’s learning new sounds. My daughter has made so much progress working with her this year!Update, 1/29/2023 We are so grateful for Ms. Ariel! My daughter went from being hesitant and reserved at school to now being outgoing and confident! She now speaks clearly and enthusiastically, and Ms Ariel has been the key part of this progress! She is so encouraging and caring, and my daughter loved every minute of going to speech therapy.

We had a very positive experience with Frisco Feeding and Speech Therapy. Tamika does a fantastic job.

My son started speech in January with Ms Brittany. From first day I liked the therapist and she is very good at explaining concepts . She is very good at engaging kids . My sons always enjoy his session with Ms Brittany . After pandemic started I was not comfortable with sessions Online but Ms Brittany was very good in making session fun filled and keeping the session fresh . He improved a lot in social skills and even now I learn how to help him to implement the social skills concept in real life . Social skills were the deficit for my son but now he is really enjoying playing with friends .he is always excited for his session and I am really happy seeing him doing things he was not . Thanks Ms Brittany.

I have worked with Ariel for 2 of my kiddos and can't possibly say how much we love her and FFS. My daughter has been see Ariel did about a year now and we've seen so much progress. I've even been able to bring her older brother and Ariel included him in everything they did. I've also seen Ariel after my youngest son was born and was taking over an hour to eat. We were able to do feeding therapy for him and after just a month or 2 he was eating in 15 minutes.Not only do we love our therapist but even the office staff has been phenomenal. They took on our insurance company when they refused to pay for visits. The FFS stay went above and beyond to fight for coverage. I am so grateful for the leg work they did on our behalf.

I highly recommend Frisco Feeding and Speech! Jeanine Roddy is an experienced professional who is fun, energetic, and makes speech an all around fantastic experience. She has a fastatic play area that all kids will love. She is easy to schedule appointments with, prompt in replying to messages, and really individualizes a therapy plan specific to your child. We have been with them since October and have received excellent communication with our therapists and seen major growth in our sons communication. I can’t say enough positive things - this is the best place in Frisco!

If you are looking for help with feeding, I would strongly recommend visiting Frisco Feeding and Speech Therapy and I want add a special mention for Tamika Magloire. We started feeding therapy for our son at around 11 months of age as recommended by our pediatrician. Tamika connected very well with my son and clearly understood his problem. She then helped us in every stage of feeding. Over the course, several new challenges came in and Tamika knew exactly how to resolve them, she gave a lot of suggestions and provided resources to use at home as well. Overall, we found a lot of progress with chewing and drinking and we couldn't thank Tamika enough for all the support she provided us.

We had a wonderful experience with Tamika. She’s very knowledgeable and helped my daughter resolve her speech issues efficiently. She found ways to engage my daughter to make therapy fun.Even with the pandemic going on she found great tips and tools to continue therapy. We are very grateful. She kept the lessons fun and productive! We saw my daughters speech improve very quickly after working with her. I would recommend Takmika again and again! We can’t thank you enough!! She’s simply the best!

Our family is very happy with Frisco Feeding and Speech! I chose this facility because I read great reviews about little kids loving their sessions with delightful teachers. That’s all I wanted for my sensitive little girl; a sweet and caring teacher. We have definitely found that in Tamika Harris at the Mckinney location. She is patient, sensitive and kind. It is evident that she really loves working with small children and that small children love working with her. She radiates so much positive energy that at home my now speaking daughter will tell me, “I love (Ta) Mika, she is so happy.” It’s such a warm feeling as a mother to know I can completely trust Tamika in private sessions with my little girl because I know she’s not only experienced and great at her job but she is also taking great care of my daughter’s well being and contributing to the love and attention she gets at home. She offers a safe haven for our daughter to learn, be challenged and to grow. Thank you, Tamika and to Jeanine for providing a healthy environment for our precious girl. - Kelly and Jonah Leiseth

Tamika's help got my babies to take a bottle which I was desperate for after waiting too long to introduce one. She's so knowledgeable, encouraging, and super helpful. I brought both boys to her; she analyzed why we might be having the issue, made suggestions for fixing, and followed up nicely. She helped me get them taking bottles within 1 visit. They also got me in faster than anywhere else I called. Super accommodating. Forever grateful! Deal! 😉

Our son has been working with Shelly Gordon for about a year and has made drastic improvements with his speech. He has been able to master all the sounds for his age group, and no longer needs therapy in one years time. Ms. Shelly is friendly, caring and flexible. She is a great speech pathologist and I highly recommend her.

We are so happy that we came here !!! We started one year ago for my son speech. I started to see amazing difference in him. I am so lucky we found Ms.Jeanine with full of energy. She is very knowledgeable and she reads the kid very well. She knows where they need help and where they struggle. Finding the real need for the kid is more important and it will help the kids getting to the right direction. I would definitely recommend her. Thanks a lot Ms.Jeanine !!!

We can't say enough great things about Ms. Leah at Frisco Feeding & Speech! Our son spent several years with her, progressing on strategies for fluency (stutter) and enunciation. We were grateful when his therapy transitioned to social-emotional and executive function intervention. Ms. Leah is one of the best and we are proud of our son for his success in her care.

Our son attended speech therapy with Keri S. for all of 2022 before moving into an ISD program. Keri is exceptional and our son felt comfortable, welcome, safe, encouraged, engaged and loved for every appointment, without fail. The worksheets Keri sent home became a part of our nightly routine and were a great supplement to Keri's instruction. The administrative team, including Mary the billing specialist, was very helpful in working with our insurance and keeping us up to date. I cannot recommend Keri and Frisco Feeding and Speech therapy enough. Thanks for a being a part of our son's growth and development, we'll miss you.

Mrs. Keri has become like a member of our family! She has treated each one of my children. She has certifications to help children manage their anxiety, as it relates to feeding or social situations. She has helped my ADHD kiddos to manage their time and tasks, interact appropriately with others, and use higher order thinking skills. She treats her patients with compassion and patience. Mrs. Keri is extremely professional and we have been so blessed to have her assist our family.

She is an experienced therapist who has a clear vision to improve my son's speech. She efficiently brought challenging tasks and my son managed them with her fun and encouraging approach.I am also grateful to all the staff there for being kind and patient to me, too. It was not easy to understand professional terms, especially for non native English speaker like me. I appreciate their respectful manners.We are very happy with the results and will miss you greatly.Thank you!Hiro and Chie Kawamura

After 15 years of misdiagnosis my child, I was referred to the Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy in Frisco. I was close to loosing my teen. Keri is phenomenal in her work. And when the therapy started just seeing what great response from my kid, I was so relieved and happy. Finally a place where they have the right professionals who know what they’re doing. I see improvement and this gives us hope. I recommend Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy for ARFID patients. It’s a journey worth taking.

We began taking our daughter to FFST and are so grateful for our experience with Ariel over the past 19 months. She was instrumental in helping our daughter improve her speech from almost non communicative to holding full conversations. She know tests within normal ranges and although bittersweet, has no reached her goals set. Ariel not only helped with speech, but with the coping mechanisms for the frustration that can stem from not being understood. I find that she has helped all of us through her therapy with our daughter. I would highly recommend Ariel and Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy.

My child was referred to Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy in 2020 for further intervention for ARFID treatment. We have been seeing Keri for almost three years now and the progress that has been made from the weekly sessions is amazing. My child has gained so much confidence with eating and has been taught tools to use (by Keri) to help overcome fears/anxieties about certain foods. Keri is very patient and nurturing, which has been important in this treatment process. Highly recommend Keri for feeding therapy.

We had a wonderful experience with Frisco Feeding and speech. My son has a hard time interacting with anyone outside of his family. Brittany made it a very easy and great experience to help him feel comfortable and at ease. We saw her for feeding and speech, twice a week. Unexpected events would arise from time to time and she was able to accommodate a new time or day. My son grew to love her and asked about her even on days we had no appointment. Due to our out of state move, we’ve had to come to an end. I have seen my son grow tremendously, both verbally and with expanding his food interests. I know if we were able to stay longer, he would of been able to completely finish his therapy goals. Going from barely eating one or two things to having a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, etc and from one or two words to full blown sentences, amazes me on how far we’ve come.

My son did speech therapy with Leah for a little over 3 years from age 2 until almost 6, and we could not have been happier! He made huge progress, and she was always so patient and sweet with him. When he would be in a typical toddler mood she would create new games on the spot or completely change her plan to get him re-engaged to make the most of his sessions. He is transitioning to in-school speech therapy now that he is in kindergarten, but if he needs additional services we wouldn't consider any other place!

What we experienced at Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy was truly amazing. This is our first child and we were a bit hesitant to seek out services since we were doing all the recommended things at home in abundance, but in the matter of a few weeks seeing Jen, it was like the light bulb went on for our daughter. Seeing how she’s progressed in just a few short months makes my mama heart burst with joy. She truly is our little chatterbox now. Words truly can’t express how thankful we are for Jen and the wonderful work she did with our family. We were anxious starting the process and unsure what to expect, but she held our hand throughout the entire process. The work they do is truly remarkable and we’ll always be grateful for them! Would recommend a 1,000 times over!

We are very happy with Frisco Feeding and Speech Therapy. Our teenage son worked with Keri Schoenemann for 2 years to get help overcoming food anxiety. Keri is a true blessing, and was professional, responsive, flexible, caring and very patient with our son, despite the occasional teenage sass. Also, due to scheduling conflicts we had most of the sessions over zoom, which worked out great and allowed our son to make progress even during the COVID pandemic. Keri was awesome in that she helped him to understand how his brain worked and gave him strategies for how to overcome his food anxiety from unfamiliar flavors and textures and form a better, and even a more adventurous relationship with food. Keri also challenged him with goals, homework and provided practical tips to overcome obstacles encountered between sessions. Honestly, you can tell Keri really cares for our son and the things she has taught him, have not only helped him with food anxiety, but will apply to help him overcome many more challenges throughout his life.Feeding issues can be very frustrating to both parent and child and if you need help, this is the place to go and Keri is the person to see (I’m sure her coworkers are great too, but we are biased for Keri!)

We are so thankful for Keri and FFST. I feel like we were truly blessed with being matched with Keri. My daughter was born with a short frenulom which instead of being addressed right away, was pushed off till she was 3. My husband and I were worried that too much damage had been done and nervous her speech was so affected by it. Keri has always been so patient with our daughter and had helped her so much. She has made great strides and went from a bit of delay in speech to not wanting to stop talking. Unfortunately she is sometimes too comfortable with Keri that she'd rather just chit chat about her day than do actual exercises. Thank you Keri for everything you've done. We'll certainly miss your bright smile every week.

I cannot speak more highly of Tamika Magloire as our Feeding Therapist! My newborn did great latching for breastfeeding in the hospital, but once discharged she had difficulty and wasn’t having wet diapers so I knew she wasn’t getting anything. Of course this occurred on a weekend so my resources were extremely limited and things didn’t work out. We started her on formula but she was pouring the milk out of the sides of her mouth and still losing weight. I had spoken with the pediatrician at every step about my concern for a tongue tie but he did not appreciate one. At our one month checkup, he recommended Speech Therapy/Feeding Therapy. At the recommendation of our chiropractor, we made an appointment with Tamika. Best. Decision. Ever. She immediately noticed my daughter had a posterior tongue tie that severely limited her tongue movement and a double banded lip tie that did not allow her to latch well on the bottle. She recommended a pediatric dental surgeon who got us in immediately for the laser release. Tamika kept in communication with the dental practice while I was doing the post surgical care and was my main supporter when the stretches of the open wounds and cheek exercises (to reteach her the proper way to eat) was wearing down on me. She listened to me. She collaborated with me as we hit road bumps. She validated my range of feelings. She encouraged me. She became a friend. The day we were discharged from needing Feeding Therapy was bittersweet because of all we have been through together to get my daughter to where she needed to be. She even sent me follow up recommendations on starting solids as well as checking on my daughter. Tamika is not just great at what does, but she is passionate. And that speaks volumes of her.

Coco hit the jackpot with Ms. Brittany. We had the pleasure of working with her for 14 months. Coco has mastered her wh questions- answering and asking them, is talking in full sentences, listens and follows two steps directions, and is so much happier now that her expressive and receptive skills have flourished (she just turned 4). She was barely putting 2 works together and couldn’t figure out a one step direction when we started.Ms. Brittany is a great communicator to me as well. She always did a great job of of summarizing the session and telling us what to work on. She has a very special talent working with young children. We are forever grateful for all improvements through play she taught Coco.

Keri was the absolute BEST to work with. My daughter was a a poor puree eater and in just a few months she's an eating pro. Keri listened to our concerns and tweaked treatments based on that. She was easy to communicate with and very good with the kiddo. Besides Keri, everyone at the office was easy to deal with - from scheduling to payments, everything was streamlined and uncomplicated. HIGHLY recommend Keri and Frisco Feeding.

Mrs. Tamika was absolutely wonderful to work with. From our first consultation, she immediately identified the issues our son was experiencing and she created a plan. My son loved his sessions with her. Mrs. Tamika is patient and kind and very involved in sessions. She assisted in providing us additional resources and referrals. As a result of seeing Mrs. Tamika, my sons tongue tie and feeding issues were addressed, and Mrs. Tamika even recognized other issues related to his tonsils and referred us to a specialist. I cannot praise her enough! My son is now eating better, and has no more functional limitations regarding chewing and eating food. Mrs. Tamika is SPECTACULAR!!! In addition, the office staff is also very kind and was always quick to respond to my calls or emails if I ever had any questions. My son is currently attending their summer camp and is also enjoying it very much.

My son loved his therapist (Abigail) and he/we learned so much about how to facilitate a better relationship with food. It changed how we look at and talk about his eating challenges. So many people told us "he's just picky", but Abigail taught us that it's sooooo much more than that for him. Great experience!

Keri is a wonderful, thorough, and patient therapist. As a telemedicine patient, she teaches me what I need to do to help my daughter (15 months with feeding therapy) and answers my many questions. We were finally able to meet her in person recently and she was wonderful with my daughter- so kind, affectionate, patient and tender. After multiple appointments with several specialists, this journey has often felt discouraging, impersonal, and overwhelming. Keri seems to genuinely care about our progress and is understanding with our concerns. I am so grateful we found her!

I had to edit my original review. The owner personally came out to greet my husband and I before my son’s session. Though sometimes communication can be misunderstood, she took ownership of her company. This meant a lot us and showed us she really cares. I’m glad to have found this place. We love our therapist and all the other therapists. Overall a great company and great people. My son has only been going here for a few months and has made tremendous progress.

Tamika was seriously fantastic and gave us hope again! My little one had a lip and tongue tie that was revised. Let me tell you that the frenectomy is not the only solution! It takes a good treatment team to get that baby to re-learn how to swallow. Tamika gave us such great hands on stretches and was so knowledgeable about breastfeeding, I felt at ease under her care. More importantly she communicated with the other team members about my LO progress. 10/10!

Keri is amazing! I didn’t know what I was looking for when I came across Frisco Feeding and Speech Therapy. All I knew was I had so much anxiety trying to feed my infant daughter after she had several gagging episodes causing her to throw up and I was just trying to find someone to help me feed her. Keri not only worked with my daughter and was able to teach her to eat safely, and identified some of the issues that caused this, but she also worked with me to help calm my anxiety. She was so patient with both of us! I was able to become much more comfortable and confident when feeding her and now she’s doing great! Thank you so much Keri!!

Tamika is the one you’re looking for when it comes to infant nursing and feeding help! We went to therapy from 6 weeks to 6 months with help from Tamika for our little man, and he is thriving! If you’re having any doubts about your breastfeeding journey, or even bottle feeding journey, I would not hesitate to reach out to Frisco Feeding & Speech therapy. Tamika is extremely knowledgeable in what she does and has such a calming professional manner. We will miss seeing her!

I couldn't be happier with my experience at Frisco Feeding and Speech Therapy. Leah Estep worked with my son individually on executive functioning skills as well as in a group setting for social skills. Due to her hard work and support, he has made excellent progress in both areas. Leah is kind, communicative and has a great way with children. She is very good about working a child's interests into her sessions to help them meet the challenges of therapy. I highly recommend her!

I just want to say a big thank you to Shelly Gordon. She is an amazing speech therapist that loves her profession. Choosing her as my son's speech therapist has been the best decision ever. We started speech therapy back in January 2021, and my son has shown so much improvement with his speech, play etc. I will definitely recommend Shelly to everyone, she is the best speech therapist my son has ever worked with.

I have nothing but great things to say about this facility. The office team was able to work with my insurance to make sure we were covered starting the therapy. Sarah is also great. She helped my daughter open up to her and eventually they became best friends. Going through therapy has been a overall positive experience.

My son started Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy two years ago to address a significant speech delay and is now caught up for his age (now 4). We were blessed to work with Ms. Ciera. Ms. Ciera significantly helped to develop my son’s speaking skills and she had a very positive impact on his self-confidence. If it weren’t for Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy my son would not be where he is at today. I HIGHLY recommend Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy!

We began taking our son to see Ciera at 10 months because he was showing no attempts to self feed. My son felt very comfortable with and responded well to Ciera. Now at 14 months, he is self feeding and has made great progress with his tongue movements. We can’t thank Ciera and Frisco Feeding & Speech enough!

Tamika was absolutely amazing to our baby girl and to me as a new mother! She assessed my daughter and knew right away who to refer us to at another facility and she also took the time to teach me mouth exercises to work on with my baby. We had a scary experience happen before meeting Tamika involving reflux and ever since we went to therapy, my daughter has been drinking and swallowing so much better. We are forever grateful!! Thank you thank you 🙂

We are very happy with our time spent at Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy. We were struggling with bottle feedings for our cleft palate baby and when our pediatrician and surgeon weren't giving us the help we needed with feedings, we went to Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy. Ciera understood and validated my fears and worked with us and our baby to make his feedings better and more efficient. She provided such great advice and techniques to implement during feedings, I truly don't know where we would be without them. We saw Ciera up until our son was 9 months old- partly because we are confident in his feedings now and we moved internationally. But I feel better knowing I can continue to do virtual visits with Ciera, if the need arises again!

I remember how my son was when he first started his speech therapy at Frisco speech therapy, and now looking at the progress he made just makes me speechless. am so grateful for the help he got from the clinical to be able to use more words and socially engaging . especially thank you to MS Cleo and MS, Maggie for being so patient and working with him throughout his journey in the clinical. His progress tells how good you did with him and thank you for that.

My son has been seeing Abby Waychoff for almost six months and I’m amazed at the progress he has made with her. When we started with Abby he had maybe 20 words and his articulation was so poor that I was the only one who could understand his few words— fast forward forward 4.5 months and he is now working on putting together 4 word phrases/sentences!! Within 1 month I was able to see tremendous progress, within about 2 months other family members noticed progress, and a month ago I had a stranger ask me if my sons speech was advanced for his age. Abby is excellent at communicating and providing specific things to work on outside of therapy. I have worked closely with speech therapists in my personal career and Abby is by far one of the best. I’m so proud of my son and I’m so thankful for Abby; she has changed his life.

We've visited several speech therapists after we moved to the Dallas area and Tamika is the best. She is intelligent, energetic, and caring. I like to sit in the room during the session and I can always learn something from her. She is experienced with kids of various speech issues. I highly recommend her to my friends who are looking for an engaging speech therapist for their kids.

Speech Therapy here was a very efficient and effective process that really helped to develop life-long, beneficial habits. Keri was very understanding, helpful, and made sure I knew what needed to be done and why it needed to be done in order to improve tongue thrust. She made sure to provide solutions that actually applied to real life situations and always ensured progress was being made. I highly recommend Keri and this office!

We LOVE Frisco Feeding and Speech! After having a lip and tongue tie released, Ciera was a huge help in establishing a great breastfeeding relationship. Incredible tips and tricks and always amazingly supportive as we worked through problems together. I’m so glad we pursued therapy after the releases! I don’t think we would have been so successful without them. Thank you Ciera!

My son has been apart of Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy since October of 2020. His speech progress has been amazing and that is 100"% in part to his therapist, Ariel. Starting speech in the midst of a pandemic seemed daunting but the office was always upfront with their prodigals and took every step to ensure we were kept safe and my son still received excellent care. They have always been understanding when we needed to switch to a telahealth visit or needed to try to switch schedules. I would/do recommend them to anyone who needs their service.

We had a wonderful experience with Frisco Feeding and speech in McKinney, my boy is working with Hibah Chaudhary for months now. She is warm and welcoming, a top-notch professional,and caring. She has a skillful way of breaking it down for easy-to-understand guidance and advice for both my boy and myself. She shared so many useful tips about to increase the talkful environment at home to help the boy quickly pick up on speech. If your children are also late talkers, Highly recommended coming here with Ms.Hibah! It helps out, the boy is now knowing so many new words and sounds. Thanks!

Frisco Feeding and Speech is a wonderful therapy office with caring therapists and a clean and pleasant environment. The therapist Tamika has been such a help to my son this past year. He went from saying words to now sentences and feeling more comfortable speaking. She is so caring and makes therapy so much fun for him that he looks forward to going each week. She always makes time to speak to me and discuss my sons progress either at the session or via text. She always goes above and beyond. I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for amazing therapists in a clean and fun environment.

Words can't describe how much Keri Bartel has positively affected our life. She has worked with our son, Jamison, for over 2 years now and the improvement he's made has been tremendous. She's very kind, caring, informative, flexible...I can go on an on. Because of Keri, our son is prepared to enter kindergarten and will have no trouble communicating with his teachers and peers. Jamison truly loves "Ms. Keri" and we are eternally grateful for the time she has spent with him.

In a single visit Brittany Larson identified the main issue impeding my son’s chewing ability—a visit that followed months of testing and therapy from other experts. In that single visit with Brittany, she improved my son’s eating and my family’s life. Every visit thereafter strengthened my son’s eating ability.Brittany is amazing. She is amazing in her expertise. She is amazing with children. She is the person I would recommend to anyone seeking help in both identifying and remediating a child’s eating impediment.-Daniel

My son has been receiving speech therapy from Tamika Harris for the last 5 months and I could not be more pleased. Tamika and the staff at Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy have been outstanding! Tamika has taken the time to help me, as a parent learn about my son's condition as well as how best to help and advocate for him. Tamika is fun, bubbly and extremely professional in the ways that she works with my son 3 days a week. She is always coming up with new ways to approach his therapy that will continue to challenge and help him improve with his ongoing development. Tamika has offered to speak with my son's teacher and SLP at school in order to make sure everyone is on the same page in regards to his condition and his treatment. She and the staff at Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy are very responsive to any questions I might have and are always kind and compassionate when it comes to our feeling as parents and our children.

We were referred to frisco feeding and speech therapy by our pediatrician for our then 2 month old daughter. Our daughter was a preemie and at 2 months was still unable to drink from a bottle easily and could not go above the preemie size nipple. Ciera was our therapist and after 2 months our daughter has now gone up a nipple size and is able to drink age appropriate sized bottles in a normal time frame. We had a great experience and would highly recommend for similar issues!

We started feeding therapy at 9 months at the recommendation of our pediatrician. We worked with Keri from start to finish and were discharged at 15 months. Keri helped at every stage in feeding, from teaching our baby how to chew and use/strengthen all muscles required, to how to introduce new textures and purées, to how to introduce solids, and how to introduce new foods to a now picky toddler. At each stage our daughter had new difficulties arise and Keri knew exactly how to help resolve the issue and provided practical at-home exercises that would help resolve our concerns over time. By the time we finished with feeding therapy our daughter could reliably and safely eat foods that were presented, as opposed to immediately throwing up like when we first started. I am grateful for the knowledge and lessons Keri provided. We are expecting a second baby later this year and are confident we now know how to continue to implement the lessons learned if needed, and would request Keri again if the situation arose.

Our daughter acquired a bottle aversion and we resorted to spoon-feeding her milk when she was 6 months. When she was 15 months, we started working with Ciera. We loved how Ciera was patient in the initial sessions and first worked on establishing a relationship/trust with our daughter, which then quickly led to amazing progress where she was drinking milk from straws and eating solids without gagging within a month. Ciera let our daughter adapt at her own pace, but at the same time motivating her growth and confidence in eating. She also offered great suggestions to help us with our feeding challenges. We were really happy with our experience with Ciera and would highly recommend her!

FFST is a wonderful, welcoming place for children needing speech and/or feeding therapy. The staff is great with children and take a personal interest in each patient, making the family and the child feel comfortable with the whole experience.Ariel was our therapist and we could not have been more happy with our child's experience. She is incredibly knowledgeable, but also able to explain the speech/feeding issues in everyday terms to parents. She consistently explained the goals she and my son were working toward, as well as sent techniques/exercises home for him to practice. She makes speech sessions fun! My son loved every session with her; he never complained about going to appointments.

We absolutely adore Keri Schoenemann [Miss Keri]. She has worked with our son for over a year, and seeing her is the highlight of his week. Miss Keri is always patient and positive while setting clear goals for my son's speech improvement. She is so caring and thoughtful and even takes time to learn his interests and family & friend's names. We have seen a major speech improvement at Frisco Feeding & Speech Therapy, and we cannot recommend Miss Keri enough!

My son worked with Keri for a long time and it was truly a great experience! Keri always answered all of our questions and gave us great tips on how to carry over at home. You can really tell she loves what she does. And my son LOVED going to see her every week. She always made the session fun and provided good feedback. I would definitely recommend Ms. Keri for feeding therapy! We will definitely miss seeing her every week!

Frisco feeding and speech was recommended to us by our son’s pediatrician when he wasn’t talking much around age 2. We started seeing Keri Bartel here. She instantly made our son comfortable through things he enjoyed doing. She has been very accommodating. Our son talks non stop now and it’s all because of Keri’s hard work. She will answer any questions and concerns. She ensured that my son’s documents were in order for him to qualify for other services. I highly recommend Keri. She is kind, professional and truly cares about your child’s well being and success. Our son now no longer requires speech therapy!

18:48 20 May 21
Elizabeth was an absolute joy to work with. She was invested in my son’s improvement and we saw SO MUCH in just a short time frame. When we had to sadly move states, Elizabeth took the initiative to call our new pediatrician and fully brief him on our son and his progress so that we could continue therapy per his recommendation seamlessly in a new location which made our job as parents that much less stressful. Cannot recommend Frisco feeding and speech therapy enough, (ESPECIALLY Elizabeth!)

Overall a very positive experience. Keri did well to explain the purpose of the exercises virtually and keep us on track. With my ever changing work schedule I had to ask for schedule changes frequently. Keri was adaptable and worked patiently with both me and my son over a 6 month period. Impressed with Keri's knowledge.

There truly are not enough words to explain how amazing Emily is! When my son started FF&S he barely spoke a few words and I swear she waved a magic wand and had him talking in no time at all. She made sure to give me things to work on with him at home and answered any questions I had. Emily is always so kind and you can tell she really cares about her patients. My son absolutely adores her and always looks forward to his sessions. We are so thankful that he can now communicate with us without any issues. I would HIGHLY recommend Frisco feeding & speech!

Tamika was the feeding therapist for my daughter, and she is absolutely amazing. When we first visited my daughter was not taking the bottle well, having spillage, major reflux. Tamika worked with her and the dentist to get her lip/tongue tie revision completed and after, it was like a whole new baby! She no longer has to be on reflux meds, and has an excellent latch on the bottle! Highly recommend!

Great place. The pediatrician recommended my son to get feeding therapy. I am so glad we followed her recommendation. My son is not afraid to try a variety of foods.

On the weekends, you may find me cheering on my son at the baseball fields or applauding for my daughter at the theater. Perhaps if I am lucky, we may be boarding an airplane on our way to a new adventure.

What is the best thing about your job?
Each child presents their own unique strengths and challenges. My favorite part of being a speech pathologist is figuring out how to unlock each child’s potential by utilizing their strengths to alleviate their weakness. Humans have an inherent drive to eat and communicate with one another; being able to foster’s a child ability to enjoy mealtime with family or express their thoughts and feelings is a true joy.
