Great speech therapy services! My son just met his goal and completed his weekly teletherapy sessions with Nicole DeBerry Smith M.S. CCC-SLP. Nicole was fantastic with him. His pronunciation of words is so much clearer and he is putting more thought into his speech. If you were hesitant to take action thinking your child will just out grow it please contact her now! Sol also accepts most medical insurance and that was wonderful for us to only have a co-pay weekly. Thank you Nicole and Courtney!
Response from the owner: We're so happy to hear that! Wishing you and your family all the best!

Cortney and her office staff have been wonderful. Scheduling an initial evaluation was easy, and the office was diligent working with our insurance plan. Cortney is amazing with our son, and instantly recognized him as having CAS. She is patient and very supportive. She is very knowledgable and has been able to teach us to help our son better communicate. We are truly lucky to have found her to help us improve our son's communication and speech.
Response from the owner: Thank you Caitlin! I've so enjoyed working with you and your family!

We've been doing speech therapy sessions twice per week for for one of our kids for about 3.5 months and am very happy that I found them. They take our insurance and it was easy to get started and get assessed and our therapist periodically assesses him as he progresses. We definitely could not have made this level of progress on my own. They make doing speech therapy fun for the child!
Response from the owner: Thank you Meg! We appreciate the kind words and love working with you guys!

These ladies are amazing, they really take the time to work with you and your little one to ensure they’re doing all they can, while also respecting the time you have to make it to their office. They have helped my son progress so much my son’s pediatrician was blown away when she saw him last! She said whatever I’m doing to keep doing it lol made me so happy as a mom. While every other place wasn’t concerned about making time to help my son these ladies did ☺️ and I couldn’t be more thankful. I will keep bringing him here for as long as he needs this help. With sol speech and therapy’s help, we won’t need them forever lol. But that’s exactly what I think all of us parents want to hear, means it’s all working 🥰 thank you ladies so much!! Don’t worry my opinion is very authentic and true, not for any other reasons haha. But when something works you have to spread the word, so if you’re seeking help reach out! Worth it in more ways than one!
Response from the owner: Thank you Taylor! We love working with you and your little one! Your words mean so much to us!

Sol Speech and Language has been great for our little one's language development. His vocabulary has expanded and he's more confident in trying to say new words and phrases! We especially love that our speech therapist Kadie can see our son at directly at our daycare. It's so simple and the results speak for themselves!
Response from the owner: We're so happy to hear this! Thank you for the thoughtful words!

Ms. Nicole is an incredible speech therapist! We've seen such an amazing improvement in our son's speech since he started working with her. She always keeps us updated on his progress and sends us videos of his sessions, which we love.

Sophie was not only exceedingly well versed in the class material for voice training but also made a point to be patient, kind, and constructive when working through improvements made in each proceeding session.Overall, I loved the experience and would highly recommend it to anyone that is working to feminize their voice and work through exercises to help with that journey.The availability and punctuality were always on point, and the communication both through email and zoom were excellent and provided as close to an in-person environment as I could have asked for.I'm glad Sol Speech has Sophie onboard, and am thankful for the opportunity to have gone through the program with her!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind review. We are so lucky to have Sophie on board to offer our clients voice feminization coaching! :)

One of the best therapy providers by far! Starting services was a smooth process and their therapy services are effective and thorough. I like that they also send me tips and additional resources for my son via email. Very resourceful! They are very accommodating and considerate of my son's Autism. The best part is my son's language development is progressing very well. I couldn't be happier. Thank you, Sol!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much!!

Highly recommend Sol Speech and Language Therapy. Ms. Valerie visits my son’s school and works with him one on one to help improve his speech. He has been progressing quickly and we could not be more proud of him. He is always excited to meet with her, and I appreciate her communication and strategies I can implement at home.
Response from the owner: Thank you for the kind words! We love Ms. Valerie too!

My son and I relocated to Austin in august 2022, and he had taken a break from his previous speech therapy while we settled in. Cortney was really helpful in helping us get settled with a therapist quickly. Alex is able to come to our house for his appts and I can already notice a improvement in my little boys speech. I’m able to communicate with them very well without issues. I’m so glad I found them and can’t wait to see more progress :)
Response from the owner: Thank you! I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed working with us so far!

I've seen more improvement in my son's speech over the past 3 months that he has been with Brandi than the past year with his prior speech therapist. I can't recommend Brandi enough!

My son has been seeing Brandi at Sol for a couple months and we’ve had a great experience! We immediately noticed a difference in his speech and she gave him (and us) the tools for working on things independently. And my son loves going, and looks forward to it every week!
Response from the owner: So happy to hear you've had a great experience :)

We moved to Austin in August and our son was diagnosed with Apraxia earlier in the year. We were very nervous about finding speech therapists in our new city that were experts in the field, but after extensive research, I came upon Sol, and I am so grateful and happy we did! Since August, our son’s speech has exploded - he can tell us his wants and needs, speak in sentences, and has an extensive vocabulary. Therapists, Cortney and Nicole, share weekly updates so we know what he’s been working on and understand his progress and goals. They are communicative and are passionate about what they do and the kids they work with. Also, they make their sessions super fun to ensure our son stays engaged. It’s the best feeling to know he is in the best of hands and that the therapy is making a huge impact on our sons life. I couldn’t recommend Sol Speech & Language Therapy more.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the kind words, Katie! We have loved working with your family!

We have been more then happy with the services we received though Sol. They are very timely, responsive and kind on the administrative side and as far as the therapist we were assigned to, Brandi is knowledgeable, compassionate and funny! She brings a great energy to the lesson each time and truly cares about the well being and advancement of the whole child. We couldn’t be more pleased.
Response from the owner: Thank you so so much Lindsay!!

We initially came to Cortney for an evaluation for suspected Childhood Apraxia of Speech. It is a rare motor speech disorder and after doing a lot of research on my own, I knew we needed to find someone who specializes in motor planning speech therapy. She immediately recognized that my son presents with CAS and has been providing therapy for him twice per week for the last two months and I already recognize progress with varying sounds, more syllables, and more words per sentence. I fully trust her expertise and greatly appreciate how responsive and helpful she’s been. Thank you so much, Cortney for helping my son find his voice!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Darlene. This means a lot. I've really enjoyed working with you guys!

My daughter has been taking speech therapy sessions with Sol Speech & language for about 2 months now. The confidence that my daughter has gained from being able to properly say her name to the kids at the park is priceless! We have had the pleasure of working with Brandi and she is flat out great! Brandi has made this adventure for my family fun. I love that she can see the needs of my child and addresses them is such a perfect way! I highly recommend Sol Speech & Language! I also highly recommend working with Brandi!
Response from the owner: Thank you for the kind words! We love Brandi too!!

Our son has been working with Nicole for a couple months now, and we could not be more pleased! We’ve worked with many STs in the past and Nicole has consistently provided us with prompt and valuable feedback, which hasn’t always been our experience. She handles all of our questions and concerns with professionalism, and even supplies supporting research and resources for reference. Our son’s speech has exploded in the past few weeks, and though it’s been a team effort, Nicole has been an integral part of that team.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Lacy!!

Sol speech therapy has been so helpful for our 2 year old to help him get up to speed after his ear tubes surgery. We went to another (highly rated, I might add) speech therapy center in austin before finding Sol, and every session we left feeling like it was a waste of time. With Sol, every session is so fun and helpful. Ms. Brandi is so fun and full of energy! She not only teaches our son, but she really teaches my husband and I different ways to encourage language. On top of speech, she has also helped us with picky eating! We cannot be more happy with the service she has provided to our family. Also, I love that she comes to our house. It’s not covered on insurance, but the sessions are less than $100 each. For not being covered, the quality of service provided, AND coming to the house, it feels like a bargain. We love Sol and Ms. Brandi!
Response from the owner: Thank you for the kind words Ellie! We’ve loved working with your family :)

I cannot express enough how grateful we are for Nicole and all she does for our 3 year old. He is starting to communicate and is so excited about talking. What sets Nicole apart is her thorough, consistent communication. My son receives services at his school and though I cannot be there for the session, I feel like she gives me such a good overview of the skills worked on, what to practice at home, videos, pictures, support graphics, etc. She also coordinates with his other therapists and connects with his school to align on goals/ideas. Overall, highly recommend Sol for services - couldn't be happier!
Response from the owner: We are so happy he is starting to communicate! Thank you for the kind words :)

We switched to Sol starting in May and it's now July and we started seeing exponential growth with our son's vocabulary. We started seeing his improvement in just three weeks going twice a week. This is his third speech pathologist and Brandi is the best. We are so happy we switched to Sol. It's also very convenient that they meet him in his school in his environment versus taking him to a clinic with mom and dad hovering over him. I think that makes a huge difference. We are very happy with Sol!
Response from the owner: Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review! So happy to hear you've seen so much growth :)

Great experience all around! My three-year-old son has been working with Brandi to address a fluency disorder. During the speech language evaluation, I was immediately impressed with Brandi's demeanor and interactions with my son, not to mention her depth of knowledge. She clearly has a way with kids and when she comes to our home for the sessions, she just makes everyone comfortable! She gives us practical information that we can understand and use. We feel fortunate to have found Sol and Brandi.Cortney at Sol got back to me the same day I inquired about their services and had us set up with the evaluation in a matter of days, which I didn't expect and really appreciated.
Response from the owner: Thank you for the kind words, Rachel!

Brandi Mills is an amazing therapist! She has worked with all 3 of my boys and they all love her. From speech to feeding therapy she has a way of connecting with the kids. Making an individual plan for each of my kids that helps them thrive on their terms. Learning the way that works the best for them. My oldest son who's autistic was the first one to work with Brandi and he was a picky kiddo at the time. Her kindness was so welcoming and he picked up on that. He was non verbal and that changed quickly with the help of Brandi. She helped us through my 6 year old having tongue tie surgery. Teaching him the correct stretches to use afterwards to avoid scar tissue. Working on his pronunciation of words due to his speech delay and tongue tie. She was even able to get my very picky 3 year old to try new foods during his feeding sessions. His favorite time of the week was getting to see her. She makes learning and working fun for the kids. We love her dearly in our house! Our kids are better in so many ways for knowing her!!
Response from the owner: Thank you for the thoughtful words! We love Brandi too!

Ms. Cortney is amazing! She took the time to really walk me through the evaluation and her assessment of my son. I appreciate how involved she allows me to be in his sessions. I feel like I am honestly learning just as much as my son! We are very pleased so far, and I am extremely glad we found Sol. If you are in need of speech services I highly recommend Ms. Cortney, she will help guide you through this process and be a true asset on your journey.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Hannah!!

Before I reached out Sol Therapy, I did quite a long time research on different organizations. Sol gave me the best experience. We initial contact via email on 04/06 . All setting up process are so clear and easy to be done online.Brandi did the speech evaluation at my place on 04/27. she is very professional and speak out her observations in a very straightforward way. we are a bilingual family (English and Mandarin), so she also did some research on non-English speakers therapy after the visit and gave me her conclusion the next day. Fortunately, my boy does not need speech therapy based on the test scores which really relief me.Cortney and Brandi are so communicable and responsible. Though we don't have the chance to use their service, but I believe Sol Speech & Language Therapy will be a good choice for families with any concerns or issues on speech delay or disorder.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much! So glad we could help!

Our daycare told me that Sol was already seeing a child at our daycare so I decided to try them even though they are out of network for us. We had previously been at another clinic but chose to take a break for various reasons. I was able to communicate with their office via email over the weekend and got set up for the following week. I was able to sit in on one in person session and now 2 virtual sessions. I saw significant progress in my 5 year old in just the first week! Nicole had been given his previous report but was able to accurately assess the other things he needed to work on. Their out of network rate is not more than what I was already paying and they visit him at daycare!
Response from the owner: Thank you Carla! We're so happy to hear you've been satisfied with services so far :)

Cortney is fantastic! She’s really knowledgable and uses scientific research to inform her individualized therapy programs. My 2.5 year old with apraxia has made a ton of progress in a short time with her. He also likes her a lot! Bonus for us is that she comes to us and takes our BCBS insurance!
Response from the owner: Thank you for the kind words, Nicole!

Our son has a speech delay and I wanted him to start a speech therapy right away. Every were else we needed to wait for months just to be seen. Cortney found a time for us right away and has been so pleasant to communicate with. She took her time to explain everything. Speech therapist Nicole has been seeing our son since December. She comes to our apartment twice a week. We are really happy with her sessions and our son enjoys them a lot. We look forward keep working with Nicole.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much, Daria!

We have been looking for a long time for a good speech therapist for our son as he has autism and is non-verbal. It has been difficult, but we finally found Cortney and Sol Speech and it has been such a blessing. She not only works hard with our son but also keeps us up to date on his progress as well as how we can reinforce his therapy. Our last speech therapist would not update us on progress and would cancel the sessions abruptly at least 2x a month. Cortney goes above and beyond, thinking of ways to reach out to our son. She treats him at his ABA clinic and has arranged times that we can participate virtually as well. Every day she has seen our son she keeps us in the loop and has improved his verbal progress and built new strategies to try beyond our prior therapist. She is reliable, organized, and extremely thorough with our son creating new ways to reach him that no other specialist has. The most important thing is that our son loves her. He is shy but has lots of energy and is very open hearted when he finds good people. He has opened his heart to Cortney since the first day and this says so much to us. Cortney has 10 years’ experience with speech therapy, but you would think it's her first day based on her enthusiasm and love of working with children like our son. Other moms and parents that I have spoken to are blown away with her, and they are very grateful and feel the same way we do. Our son is our whole world, so I always refer to Cortney and her company to meet their needs.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much, Doug. I love working with your family!

I highly recommend Sol Speech & Language!! Cortney is AMAZING! Our 4 year old has been attending sessions for about two months and we couldn’t be more pleased with how much progress he has shown! She is very patient and I can honestly say Sol Speech & Language was the best decision we could have ever made! She not only helps with his speech therapy but also has started apraxia as well! She knows the tips and tricks that have just been so beneficial for my son. Thank you Cortney!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much, Allyson!

We've been working with Sol for several months now and couldn't be happier with the progress our son is making. His communication skills and overall articulation has improved so much. Nicole makes sure to keep sessions interesting with various games but also challenges our son to take turns, keep a calm body, and follow directions in addition to working on his speech and language skills. We are so grateful for Nicole and Cortney. They are a must for our family!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Meghan! We love working with you guys!

My son was not talking until 3 years old. He could do only mmm sounds. We were not sure of the reason because he was born different. With Cortney magic happened! After couple of weeks of therapy she found a way to force him to say his first letters and then words! Everything was in a fun way, they were playing a lot and she also taught me how to talk correctly with my son! Now he is 9 yo. He speaks 3 languages, learning language number 4 and he is singing! If you’ve seen him before, you wouldn’t believe that.Strongly recommend! Btw, before we started therapies with Cortney, we were supposed to go to special needs school. We were looking for talking devices. After therapies we went to regular school, but special needs class only due to our physical differences.She is amazing!Cortney Lhota, if you read this, thank you again and again!
Response from the owner: Thank you!! I miss you and Beknur so so much! You were such a fun, lovely family to work with! Beknur has come so far! I'm so proud :)

Nicole has been amazing with my 3 year old son, he has progressed so much in the time we have spent with her and she not only helps him but also me as a parent with ideas on how to help him with his language the most. She is patient, kind and genuine, it’s very apparent that she loves children and wants them to succeed, we feel lucky to have her as our speech therapist and look forward to more progress in the future!

“I have seen such an improvement in my son since he began speech therapy with Cortney.”

I am so happy we found Sol Speech & Language Therapy! I have seen such an improvement in my son since he began speech therapy with Cortney. She works hard to meet goals and is knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend her!

Laura Z.

“My daughter became more confident during therapy and her speech became more clear quickly.”

Cortney is amazing! When my daughter started therapy, I was one of few who could understand what she was saying. I often had to translate when someone would ask me “what did she say?” Cortney quickly identified the letter sounds that were giving my daughter the most problems and created a plan to correct them quickly. My daughter became more confident during therapy and her speech became more clear quickly. I no longer had to translate for her as others could converse with her. Following her discharge, as she would chat away with anyone and everyone, my husband would say “Cortney created a monster!” (In the best possible way!) Highly recommend!!!

Andrea G.

“Cortney is patient, attentive, and makes class fun…”

My son has been attending speech therapy with Cortney via Zoom for the last couple of months and we have already noticed improvements in his speech. Cortney is patient, attentive, and makes class fun – this is important since having a 4-year-old sit still in front of a computer is no easy feat. We are more than impressed with what she has been able to teach him in such a short time. We love Ms. Cortney and highly recommend her!

Jessica A.

“Cortney really knows our daughter better than many therapists she’s worked closely with.”

Cortney Lhota is an exceptional speech/language therapist.  She has been providing speech/language services to my daughter who has a very rare genetic condition called Williams syndrome. Cortney took her time to review all research provided to ensure her technique and delivery of treatment met the needs of my daughter. My daughter enjoys working with Cortney and looks forward to every session. I truly love seeing how excited my daughter gets in anticipation for her therapy sessions. Cortney’s recommendations provided after each session are always spot on.  Cortney really knows our daughter better than many therapists she’s worked closely with, in all areas of her therapy.  This is having a huge impact in the level of progress she has made with Cortney.   It makes a world of a difference when a therapist truly “knows” your daughter, how to tap into her abilities and never limiting her potential or what she is truly capable of accomplishing. We are forever grateful for Cortney’s expertise, professionalism, and love for her role as a speech/language therapist.  We feel very lucky to get to work with her.

“And most importantly, she knows her stuff.”

I would 100% recommend Cortney for speech therapy services. She was incredibly patient and attentive with my son, who was very irritable and uncooperative that day due to a bad nap. She took her time gaining his trust, and went above and beyond to engage with him, and not to cut the session short. She has such a warm and compassionate demeanor and I can completely see why kids are so drawn to her. And most importantly, she knows her stuff. She included me as part of my son’s assessment and made sure that my input was considered just as much as the actual session with my son.

D.O.

“I saw my son’s use of speech and expressive language skyrocket.”

My elementary school aged son attended speech therapy with Cortney Lhota for a year. During that time I saw my son’s use of speech and expressive language skyrocket. He enjoyed going to see Ms. Cortney, and she totally understood and dealt with his stalling, zoning out, and distracting behaviors. Cortney was gentle, yet firm, and she knew when to move on to something else. If one approach did not take, she was creative and resourceful and tried a different approach. Cortney made my son feel special and improved his confidence greatly. In addition to her work with my son, Cortney was absolutely terrific in communicating how to carryover therapy strategies. She also gave me all the tools to work with him at home. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a speech language pathologist.
