“I loved this video. One of the best I have ever seen. The pace was perfect – the quality of the DVD was beautiful. Everything was broken down nicely and easy to follow! I enjoyed listening to Pam’s explanations and anecdotes from her experience. And I loved the booklet, which was much bigger and easier to read than most conference I have gone to lately with power point handouts that I need a microscope to read (!!). ”
— Amanda, SLP
“I loved the ideas presented in the course! Besides for being varied and creative, they help give therapists “permission” to trust what they intuitively know about relating to children (e.g. from parenting experience) as opposed to the “scientific” behavioral methods that are advocated in many academic texts that do not reflect a natural way of relating to children. Good format. I felt it was easy to follow; I have always found Pam to be a fantastic speaker and I love benefiting from her experience. Thank you!”
— Chelsea, SLP
“So practical! And the information can be put to use immediately!”
— Amy R., SLP
“Very informative! I did not know of these four stages before taking this workshop and now I have a whole new understanding of my students. I realize now that not all of them are at the final stage of imitation and they should therefore not be pushed into imitating new words. Thank you!”

“This book has been a huge help to me, a mother of a young drooler! All the surgeries and therapies helped him in some ways but not his drooling. It persisted as badly as ever. Finally in desperation I bought this book and was so thankful I did!! This provided me the understanding of my son’s problem and so many practical ideas on how to help him. None of the other professionals I worked with understood how to work with drooling like Pam does. We were able to help my son and decrease the drooling… now he is 4 and almost drool-free. I recommend this book to all parents who struggle with this issue.”

— Mary Heilman, SLP
“I have found this book so helpful for my understanding of speech development. Marshalla really explains phonological development and how our understanding of the natural progression can help us with so many clients when we overlay the process (stretched out or compressed) over our clients’ progress. Love this book.”

She provides a wealth of knowledge for parents and professionals.”

“An amazing tool. Simple, easy to understand, and easy to apply.”
— Adriana Moguel
“I can’t get over the progress my difficult /r/ clients have been making using SATPAC. They have made considerable gains in producing an accurate /r/ in most contexts, and they are highly motivated because they are excited about their gains. They actually look forward to coming to speech. Two of these clients have been in speech for 3 years, and are just now making the progress they need to “graduate” from speech.”
— Lisa Dugoni, SLP
“The SATPAC Program is systematic and user friendly. It gives articulation students maximum practice in a step-by-step format. They know at each step what level of achievement is expected of them and if they have met their goals. Concentrated practice enables students to progress at a faster rate. Practice lists are generated at the click of a mouse-a great time saver. This is a valuable tool.”
— B. H. Moats
“I am having the best time generating word lists and presenting them to my students. I’m using this approach in remediating the /r/ and have found great success in less than a week. It truly is an amazing program!”
— Sarah Bell, SLP
