Marcia Hoodwin is the best speech pathologist our son has ever had. He excelled with her more than any other speech pathologist. I was happy to see such progress in him through her therapy sessions. She is experienced, professional, enthusiastic and has a way with children that proves incredible results. Our son was evaluated with a moderate to severe speech delay. Since we live in Washington, D.C., our son could only benefit from her sessions (for about 10 weeks) while we were in Florida. I have experience with many speech and language pathologists, privately and in hospitals (in DC, MD, VA), in search of the best, highly rated, and "world renowned" professionals for our son. It's difficult to find someone as good as Marcia Hoodwin. We thank her very much!

In addition to the excellent teaching techniques, she is a pleasant, intelligent, organized and efficient person, and is someone you can totally depend on to be timely, as well as interested in her clients."Judy Pflug
Another Very Satisfied Parent:
"Marcia worked with our son for 2 years from age 3 to age 5. The convenience of having her visit with our son during the day while he was at his preschool was a priority. As they continued to meet we were amazed at the progress we heard with our sons speech and demeanor. Marcia is always professional, patient and kind and our son looked forward to his sessions with her."
"She quickly identified that he does really well with positive reinforcement and would bring him games to play that he adored. Even though she always saw our son at school there was great communication with us about what she was working on with our son. Also she gave us great suggestions on what we could do to follow through with her work at home. Marcia always made her meetings with our son fun and he truly blossomed by working with her consistently. I would recommend Marcia to anyone with a child that needs speech therapy and am so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with her." Sincerely, Rona Blau Wald
