I really like ChatAbilities! I have learned so much here. Julie is my therapist and is great. Duncan (the dog) really helps you learn, you can pet him while doing work! Those are some reasons why ChatAbilities is the bomb!! Everyone here is so nice. Thanks ChatAbilities!
"Throughout the many years I have come to ChatAbilities I have grown so much. I feel like my language and social life have both improved. I have worked with Julie individually and in her social group since I was 13 years old! They also help me with my personal life!"
My 12 year old daughter has been participating in a girls social group led by Julie Prato and Samantha Stricker for about a year. She enjoys it a lot, has made some nice friends, and is learning skills that translate to her relationships with school peers. She also does individual speech therapy with Samantha. They have an excellent relationship and I see so much value coming from the help she received at ChatAbilities
This place is amazing. It has helped me a lot with social skills and learning how to make friends. I love that in social skills group with Miss Julie and Miss Samantha all the girls get together to learn, laugh, and have a good time. I also work with Miss Samantha alone, which is very fun because she makes me laugh. She has helped my speech improve so much! I love ChatAbilities!
I started coming to see Julie when I was a freshman in high school, so I was about 15 years old. I was not so good with conversation or doing things with my friends, but after going to see Julie I got a lot better with these things. She taught me what is expected to do and what is not expected to do in social situations, which has given me confidence I did not have before.
I work with Samantha and she is very nice, everyone here is! We work on reading comprehension and other reading skills and she always helps so I understand everything!
