We had a terrible experience with Associated Learning and Language Specialists. I encourage parents to be very careful about having their children receive services at ALLS. Initially we received decent services by an experienced therapist, but after some time our son was placed with a speech therapist with virtually no experience who was negative about our child and actually tried to get services through our insurance provider canceled. Anyone who is getting services at ALLS through an insurance provider should quickly find alternative services for their child as the same thing could happen to their child. We are appealing this decision now but were very disappointed with the unprofessional way we were treated and how our son was negatively targeted. The therapist being young and inexperienced was only focused on protecting herself and instead of helping our child was worried about how the insurance provider would judge her abilities. When we escalated to the Director, she was unaware of what happened and not involved in the decision and apologized but after she saw this Yelp review she changed course and backed up the decision. It was so disheartening to see professional therapists focus on themselves and not a special child like our son and a warning for all parents of special children considering ALLS.
