"Thanks to Miss Mallory and Miss Ashley my son has did a 360 in less than a year I'm so proud of him thanks Sprocket" - Portia (mom to son, age 8)
"My son has benefited more than I can say from the amazing services Dan and Ashley, and all the team at Sprocket. Can't recommend them highly enough!!" - Anne (mom to son, age 11)
[We] have been sitting here for the better part of an hour talking through what I learned from you today and looking over the resources on Sprocket's website. At the risk of getting emotional as I type this, I just want you to know that for the first time in 3+ years, I feel like a way exists to actually, practically relieve some of the extreme frustration our kid experiences on a daily basis. We love him so freaking much, and he is just the best kid, but LORD HAVE MERCY at the number of times we've been tempted to put him at the curb with a "free to good or questionable home" sign strapped to his torso. More often than not, we fall into bed at night exhausted from the battle(s) of the day, feeling like we've failed him again and again but having no idea how to be better the next day. Reading through the regulation and reflex information made us feel like we can finally DO SOMETHING to legitimately help him, and whatever your recommendation is for continued therapy, we're all in.
I hope you get e-mails like this all the time for the work you do.
With all the mushiness I can muster, thank you again.
P.S. Since [my daughter's] second session with you, I have not had to use an ice pack on my boobs a single time. NOT A SINGLE TIME. #iheartOT
- Mom to son, age 4, and daughter, age 9 months
Thanks Nat! WE appreciate you so much! Thankful that you do what you do and because you do, we have a snuggly little joy in our lives! Thanks - Stephanie (mom to Anna, age 4 months)
"Nat and Barb are revolutionary in their approach to kids. Cooper has been stretched and accomplished so much in such a relatively short time that we are telling everyone about Sprocket!! Nat and Barb just get it and we are so happy with the progress Cooper has made." - Vicki (mom to Cooper, age 4)
"I appreciate your help! And although [my son] wouldn't say it, he does too. Historically, he's been extremely slow-to-warm and generally has a lot of bravado around folks he doesn't know well (or maybe doesn't feel emotionally safe with?) and I haven't seen much of that since his second session at Sprocket. To me, that speaks volumes about your ability to create a healthy, trusting rapport with him. He's not a kid who is comfortable with failure and the fact that in your environment, he can face needing some support with these issues is nothing short of a minor miracle. So, truly: Thank you!" - Camille (and son, age 9)
Eli loves to come to Sprocket and I dread the day I have to tell him he is finished there. The team has been so wonderful with him and the progress he has made is astounding. Dan is his primary therapist and my son LOVES him. Dan and Nat often work together with my son and another little boy and the combination of the therapists and the benefit of the social interaction with the other child has worked well for Eli. Their approach is unique and dynamic, and perfectly geared toward my child. Everyone at Sprocket has been supportive and helpful to us and I recommend them constantly to other families.
"We love coming to Sprocket. We started in November and are seeing huge improvements in our son's coordination, endurance, and self-esteem. Nat does an excellent job relating to our son and identifying his needs." - Amy (son, age 11)
"Amazing, they jumped right in with my son, made us feel welcome. They are the best. So excited for the visit." - Daniel (son, age 8)
Natalie is so incredibly gifted. Our daughter, Annabelle (15 months), was having quite content to scoot on her knees rather than start walking. After spending some time with Natalie, she was able to develop an immediate rapport with Annabelle and earned not only our trust, but her trust as well. Natalie took a situation that was causing my wife and I a bit of stress, and immediately brought a calming and confident presence. Natalie evaluated Annabelle’s development and showed us a few exercises to help strengthen her core. Within 2 days Annabelle was walking immeasurably better than before. Within 3 weeks she was standing up all by herself and walking all over the place; exploring her new found abilities and independence. Thank you! -Steven and Leisa (parents to Annabelle, age 16 months)
" Nat and Barb went beyond the call of duty to help our family. With patience and without judgement they entered into our challenges. We are forever grateful for their persistent, compassionate, wise, generous, and creative efforts to help our daughter and to help us as parents. On days that we felt discouraged, they held out hope and reassured us that progress was being made. We all gained so much from our time at Sprocket."
“Nat’s services have been so beyond what any occupational therapist has ever done or offered. She thinks outside of my children’s limitations and truly problem solves their behavior issues.”
Hi Nat . . . I really appreciate all of the great strategies you showed me yesterday. [My husband] and I both feel more confident about tummy time activities, and who knew Norah loves being on a yoga ball?! Her awake time today has been much more interactive and fun for all of us, and it makes me so happy to see Norah enjoying tummy time instead of being infuriated that we're making her use her own muscles. :) Thanks again! - Michelle, mom to Norah (11 weeks)
"They have the best therapist around. Jaylen has been in therapy since he was 3. We have had a lot of interactions with different therapist but non as great as Nat and Barb. We are so luck to have them as part of our team. Jaylen has accomplished so much and his future looks so BRIGHT!! He looks forward to going and I can’t wait to watch him grow and develop even more. If you are in need of a GREAT THERAPIST please check them out. Sprocket Therapy Solutions you ROCK!!" - Adrian (mom to Jaylen, age 11)
“Barbara connected with [my son] in a way that is unexplainable. He was always happy to see her (this is highly unusual) and learned so very much while working with her. She has a patience that I have never seen, and always communicated with me about everything they were working on so we could incorporate it at home as well.”
“Nat’s OT services have helped our children understand how to apply their unique skills to their everyday life & future. I now believe my children will live a very good life.”
“Barbara has been instrumental in getting [my son] to try new foods; new textures as well as helping him learn new ways to communicate. We would not be experiencing the progress without her.”
“You [Barb] are unique, especially gifted and not replaceable. I value your inspiration for help with my kids.”
“I KNOW through Ms. Nat’s services that our children will now have an independent & successful future. She has given me hope and renewed my passion to make my children fully ready for the outside world.”
“It has been so amazing for me to have Nat’s educated, gifted insight. It's made our days easier (no more fights when it comes to changing clothes!) and my days feel more purposeful now with some of the activities and games she has taught me to play with my son.”
“Ms. Nat was very motivating with my son. She pushed him to complete tasks even when he was just being stubborn. Ms. Nat has a wonderful rapport with her patients. My son is kind of shy and won’t go to just anybody. He opened up and was sitting on her lap and talking to her on the first visit.”
