​"I had never heard of Apraxia when my daughter’s pre-school teacher mentioned it to me. I started my online research immediately but was overwhelmed with all the information and I was nervous about how to get my daughter the help that she desperately needed. After the evaluation at Apraxia Dallas confirmed my daughter’s diagnosis, Breanna put into place an easy-to-understand plan of action. For the first time since the mention of Apraxia, I felt relieved and hopeful. Once we started therapy, Breanna offered me endless tips and exercises that I still use when practicing at home with mya daughter. Her professionalism and knowledge of Apraxia is astounding and the relationship she’s built with my daughter is exceptional. My daughter is excelling in second grade, plays soccer and has lots of friends. She’s expected to “graduate” from speech therapy in the near future! My husband, Mark, and I truly appreciate Breanna’s expertise. We will forever be grateful for her and all that she’s done for my daughter."
"We started with Apraxia Dallas when my son was 23 months old. Although he was younger than their typical patient at the time, he had 17 of the 24 indicators of CAS. He had two sounds - a and e. We’d been with a typical SLP for about 5 months prior and my son made no progress. Once we started with Apraxia Dallas, he made progress instantly. It’s been over 2 1/2 years since we started therapy. He’s got mild to moderate CAS, and today he can go to preschool and communicate with his teachers independently. He says hi and starts conversations with strangers in the grocery store. I’ve even had people tell me that they’re surprised he has a language disorder. Breanna is like family now. My husband and I don’t know what we would’ve done without her. Taking on a non-verbal two year old as a client was a hard job, and our son spent many session laying on the floor screaming out of frustration. Being two and not being able to talk was so hard for him. But, Breanna hung in there and with a lot of love and commitment helped our son learn to talk. We’ve got at least two years of speech therapy ahead of us, but we have hope today that our son will be able to speak just like everyone else. We will be forever grateful for all she’s done for our son and our family."

"I can’t say enough about Mallory and the fantastic job she does with my son. He has Down syndrome and severe apraxia, so he is by no means an “easy case.” But Mallory knows her stuff and when working with him I can see that she is addressing several things at once -- often with multiple tools -- and knows just how far to push without overwhelming him. I sit in amazement at every session, watching Mallory, to pick up whatever I can to use with my son at home. Mallory is an extremely skilled speech therapist, but what I find even more inspiring is the boundless energy, joyfulness and positivity she brings to her work. There must be days where Mallory is tired or frustrated, but I have yet to see one evident in her work. Mallory is beyond wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a speech therapist."
"When I suspected my child had Apraxia, I sought out specialists in my area and found that there were very few that were actually trained in diagnosing and treating Apraxia. We were very fortunate to discover Breanna Waldrup, whom we have now been seeing for over 4 years. My child's Apraxia is pretty significant and we were even at one time told that he might not actually end up being an oral communicator, but I am so happy today to hear so many words! I love that Breanna makes therapy fun and interesting, and we can't wait to go back week after week. I also love that she not only invites, but encourages anyone involved in our daily lives to attend so that they can help and better understand Apraxia."

"Mallory has been such a blessing to our family.  She immediately connected with my son in such a natural way that he always looked forward to going to see her. It was incredible to watch the progress that he made from being an unintelligible 3 year old to a kindergartener who doesn’t stop talking! Mallory did a great job of always communicating the specific goals and educating me on how to work with him at home. She was so patient and gentle with him and took a personal interest in helping him improve his speech. His self confidence grew leaps and bounds because of her loving approach.  Our family is so thankful for Mallory and all that she did to help our son. We highly recommend her to everyone!"
"When my son was 2.5 years old we had him evaluated at Apraxia Dallas for suspicion of Apraxia of Speech.  At that time he only had "go to sounds", but no real words.  Within 3 months of therapy my son had a few words of speech.  At the age of 3 he was officially diagnosed with Mild Apraxia of Speech.  He has been with Breanna for 2 years now and speaks in full sentences that are about 80% intelligible to strangers.  He still works hard at some of the more difficult sounds, but Apraxia Dallas has been a phenomenal practice in helping my son find his voice!"

 " Breanna Waldrup was an answer to our prayers.  She had the specialized knowledge and experience to guide us through all the uncertainty and frustration that comes with CAS, and more importantly, she has a deep and genuine passion to help children overcome it.  Breanna consistently demonstrates the highest level of competency and professionalism.  We discovered Apraxia Dallas through our local speech therapist who eventually recognized that our oldest child was likely dealing with CAS, a condition that our therapist could not effectively treat.  Our son was just older than three years when Breanna first evaluated and diagnosed his condition as a “moderate” CAS.  She also mapped out an effective program for our son that also fit our personal situation.  Living more than 2 hours from Dallas, we made trips for one-hour therapy sessions with Breanna each week in addition to our own daily sessions at home.  Our son was officially dismissed from therapy just before his seventh birthday having achieved a peer-level assessment score of “average”.  After therapy, our son’s speech has continued to improve and develop at a normal rate and his speech transformation seems to us as nothing less than miraculous."

"Our daughter started seeing Mallory after a rather slow yearlong progression with a previous speech therapy practice. Frustrated by the slow progression and lack of diagnosis of our daughter's speech condition we made the decision to change speech therapists. We started seeing Mallory, and it was the best parenting decision we EVER made. A year later our daughter’s graduation from speech therapy was one of the best days of our lives and a true reflection of the dedication and hard work Mallory had with our child.

Mallory is consistent and works hard to show parents how to continue working with the child at home. She is fun and rewards good work, yet is diligent in making sure work is performed well. Mallory is a loving, kind and genuine person that truly cares.

Our family has been extremely blessed by Mallory’s gift as a speech therapist. I simply don’t know how we could recommend anyone more than her, much less anyone other than her for a child’s speech therapy needs. Now a year out from graduating speech therapy, our daughter still asks when she can go see Ms. Mallory for speech again…a pretty high compliment, if you ask me."
