Mr. Tim is amazing. My daughter, who is 4.5 years old, started stuttering when she was 3 years old. She was a very early talker. At 3.5 years old we started speech therapy with another speech pathologist. At first, it was fine. We saw some improvement, nothing radical. We went weekly for 4 months. In the 4th month, everything spiraled downward and took a turn for the worse. We could tell that she was frustrated and had lost interest in the program we were doing. I called Mr. Tim and spoke with him at length about the issues we were having. Within a week or less, we had our first appointment. That was in January. We saw him weekly and by May, her stuttering was gone. In late July, she had a small hump with her speech which lasted about 2 weeks. Because of Mr. Tim and the tools that he gives you as a parent and as a child, we had the tools to overcome it. Also, she maintained her confidence through it and didn't see it as a big deal whereas before she used to cover her mouth because she said "it was difficult to talk." My daughter loves going to her appointments because he makes everything fun. I would recommend him to anyone!

My husband and I were looking for someone who was qualified, honest and "in the zone" about what they do! We were lucky enough to do our homework and locate someone right here in Atlanta recognized nationally for his contributions in helping teens with stuttering. His personal and professional approach to addressing my 15 year old son's mild stuttering issues was refreshing and totally effective. Teens are hard enough to reach and they can sense when someone is just "in it for the money", especially my son. He really benefited from Tim's unique approach and professional acumen in his field. The best money we've ever spent to address a critical facet of my son's growth, development and potential. Thank you Tim!
My 10 year old son has stuttered off and on since he was five. We've used other therapists offered through our school district or insurance plan in the past but never saw very much progress (considering the time we spent in appts.) and my son did not enjoy the visits. Tim Mackesey makes speech therapy very fun and educational for the child and the parent. He does this in a way that helps build the child's self-confidence and gives him hope that he can overcome stuttering. It's well worth the money for the return that it brings.
