Since she was just a baby, six year old Reagan has been seeing therapists like Erin Belleu a Speech Pathologist who has worked for THERAPY 2000 for over ten years. Young Reagan would spit out her food, struggling to chew and swallow her bites. Now, Reagan is working on her speech, and her therapist has found lots of fun ways to help Reagen master her words like playing Go Fish on an iPad. Reagan’s mother, Suzanne Hollman has nine children. Four of them are excelling thanks to THERAPY 2000. It’s a program that offers therapy to those in need. Specialists offer occupational, speech, or physical therapy. Some, like Reagan, needed help eating solid foods. Others have soared above reading levels in school thanks to speech therapy.

“It’s completely changed their lives, and for the better,” said Hollman. “They are able to cope, understand, have social skills, where before we never knew they were going to be able to get passed that hump.”

Hollman says it’s not just the strides her children have made that encourage her to recommend THERAPY 2000 to her friends.

“They do come to the home so that they work around our schedule,” said Hollman. “That is also an appealing aspect that THERAPY 2000 can offer.”

Hollman credits Reagen’s therapy session for bringing her up to speed, while making learning fun. Reagan now enjoys sharing all of her words with everyone she knows

“It’s not about making more money,” said Belinda Williams, Occupational Therapist for THERAPY 2000. “It’s not about you having notariety, or somebody just giving you an extra pat on the back. It’s knowing that you’re really going to make a difference.”

Making a difference in many lives, just like Reagan’s.
