for lifelong success
Meet the founder, Arefa
At Key to Growth, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality, personalized speech and language therapy in the comfort of your home or convenience of your child’s school.
Relationship building because it is evidenced that collaboration with a child's family and other service providers is optimal in treating the whole child and maximizing success.
A play-based approach because play is how children access and make sense of the world. Therefore, to teach and support language development, we must connect with them at their level, through play.
What families are saying
My daughter was not saying any sounds by 18 months. Arefa came highly recommended by a family member. My daughter immediately loved Arefa, trusted her and had fun with her. That play was essential to the success of speech therapy. From there, Arefa was able to motivate my daughter to develop oral motor skills, make and practice new sounds. Slowly but surely they began to string multiple words together and converse. My daughter was able to communicate for the first time through words and it changed her life. It was the beginning of her separating from me and developing socially. I will forever be grateful to Arefa for setting my daughter off in the right direction and could not recommend her more to any family whose child needs support.
