My daughter has been coming to The Speech Clinic for just under two years. When she was around 3 ½ she was diagnosed with a severe speech impediment. She went to a different speech pathologist for a year and a half with little to no improvement. Noticing that as time went on and she was becoming more and more self-conscious, I knew a change had to be made. That’s when I came across The Speech Clinic. Since the first time I called and spoke with Jackie on the phone, I was put at ease. The entire staff is extremely friendly and are more than willing to help you in any question that you may have. I will forever be thankful for The Speech Clinic. I saw improvement in my daughter’s speech within the first month. Ms. Lauren always takes the time after each session to thoroughly explain exactly what was worked on that day and helpful tips that I can do at home to help further along the process. My daughter loves Wednesdays now because those are her “speech days.” I honestly don’t know where we would be right now if it weren’t for The Speech Clinic. There are simply no words that express the deep gratitude I have for Ms. Lauren and the staff at The Speech Clinic for giving my daughter back her self-esteem. This place will always hold a special place in my heart.

My experience with The Speech Clinic has been nothing less that extraordinary. The minute I walk in the door, I am greeted by professional office staff and my essentially non-verbal son sprints into the office of Rachel, his speech pathologist. Rachel has built rapport with my son from a foundation of trust, fun and innovative techniques. She is always willing to try different avenues of learning to make every therapy session successful. My six year old son entered in to therapy three years ago with babbles and possibly a random or inconsistent word. Rachel has helped him use purposeful words in meaningful ways. Speech will most likely continue to be a struggle and there is no other clinic I would choose to be on this journey. Kausar, the owner of The Speech Clinic, is consistently overseeing our son’s case and is supportive and committed to results in all of her patients. The genuine care that is given at this clinic is sincere and accomplished.
My daughter has been seeing Ms. Lauren for about a year now. She is a very professional and caring speech pathologist. I have seen incredible progress in my daughter’s speech. During this past summer, we were away for two months. Ms. Lauren was so thoughtful, she put together materials for us to work on while we were away. When we returned, we were able to move on without having to go back. We were so blessed to have her as our speech pathologist.

When we first started coming to The Speech Clinic, no one
could understand my son when he spoke. He has made great strides in his
communication skills over the last four years since coming to The Speech
Clinic. I will always be grateful to Anita and Kausar for the encouragement,
care, and concern they have shown my son. Because of them, my son is
enjoying success in the classroom and in life.
I take Katelyn to The Speech Clinic because I trust them.
They have achieved obvious results with our daughter. Like most parents, our
children are precious to us and we are very sensitive to any problems or
issues they have. The Speech Clinic has treated us with sensitivity and
respect. Kausar is wonderful with my daughter, and from what I can see,
children in general. Katelyn loves to go there and she doesn't know she is
delayed in any way. I take Katelyn to The Speech Clinic because they have
achieved the results I need in a way that makes her feel like she is
playing! Thank you!

My son John was born with cleft lip cleft palate. He has
had many surgeries to repair this. He needs speech therapy to help. He
started coming to The Speech Clinic about six months ago. John has made
great progress. He loves coming for speech therapy. He uses what he learns
at home. John and I have learned a lot from Ms. Kausar. She is very patient
and kind to my son. We have used different services in the past and The
Speech Clinic is by far the best we have used and will continue using.
My daughter has been coming to The Speech Clinic for four
years. We travel 30 miles each time. Why? One reason: RESULTS!!!
We have been with The Speech Clinic for quite some time.
The people there are not only knowledgeable and professional, but also they
are caring and make you feel like family. My son is very comfortable and
that enables him to concentrate on his speech and pragmatics. Kausar and Dee
feel like family to us and have often gone the extra mile to accommodate us
when needed. I cannot see going elsewhere when my son has improved so well
Kausar has helped my wife when two other speech
pathologists could not. Kausar has made a great difference and we are very
I have always felt welcomed here. I felt at home the
first time I walked in the office. They make me tea. My stroke made me where
I was not able to talk or write. Look at me now, I am writing and I am
talking too. Thanks to Kausar and Dee.
Ms. Caroline Anih
My son has been a patient of Kausar Zafar's for five
years, since kindergarten. Kausar has been an extremely positive influence
in his development. She is not only concerned with his oral-motor strengths,
but also his social speech skills. We can always count on Kausar to work in
conjunction with our son's school IEP goals, as well as to help develop
them. She is an extremely professional, hardworking therapist.
A Katy patient's mom
Ms. Kausar has been working with our oldest child, who
was born with cleft lip and palate, since March 2001. Due to the nature of
our daughter's birth defect she needs extremely specialized oral-motor and
speech therapy. Our daughter's plastic surgeon at Texas Children's Hospital
continues to be very pleased with her speech progress.
Ms. Kausar also works with our younger daughter who was showing speech and
language development delays as a preschooler. Ms. Kausar's early
intervention has helped our daughter make steady progress since she entered
We feel so blessed to have found someone of Ms. Kausar's caliber and ability
in the Katy area. We are most impressed with her professionalism and
dedication to the children. She constantly challenges the children in a very
gentle way and gets excellent results. She keeps in touch with the plastic
surgeon and checks for changes in speech which might need more surgery. She
is very flexible and copes with different situations easily. Her dedication
to her patients is outstanding.
My wife Joanne has been receiving speech therapy from The
Speech Clinic for several months due to a fall and brain surgery. When we
started, she was having problems swallowing and would not try any solid,
spicy, or sweet foods. Her diet was very limited. She was very sensitive to
bright light, noise, and temperature variations. She also had poor
short-term memory. She has improved steadily thanks to the skilled efforts
of Kausar. She eats almost anything, the sensitivity has returned to normal.
Short-term memory has greatly improved and she is very social. I am very
pleased with the results we are obtaining thanks to the efforts of Kausar.

The Speech Clinic has helped our son tremendously. Not
only have we noticed a difference in his fluency, his grades and attitude
about school have improved as well.
George and Rikki Franklin
My son, Brian, was born prematurely and now has several
developmental delays, including speech. Since coming to The Speech Clinic,
Brian is starting to verbalize himself and even speak some words. Under the
guidance of Kausar, he has improved his overall behavior and his speaking
abilities. He is able to understand the different concepts of speech through
different activities that Kausar has introduced to him. She has earned his
trust and he now looks forward to his speech sessions.
The Speech Clinic has been a true asset to my family.
About three years ago. my six year old son, Brandon, was having difficulty
speaking and expressing himself. From day one, his speech therapist, Anita,
has diligently worked with him and she was able to immediately diagnose
Brandon's weaknesses. Now he is able to clearly verbalize himself and we now
understand everything that Brandon says. Anita is very good at managing his
behavior. At times Brandon can be very hyper and have a difficult time
focusing. Anita has a way of re-directing Brandon's attention in a way that
makes him want to do his work and once his session is completed, he leaves
out very happy. My family and I continue to see progress in Brandon's
speech. He does very well in school and I owe it a lot of it to Anita and
The Speech Clinic.
My son Jake has been coming to The Speech Clinic for a
little over two years. He as seen Miss Anita the entire time. When Jake
started, he had many refusal and defiant behaviors. He screamed much of the
time and had no conversation skills. Jake really had very little language at
all at that time besides echolalia.
Over the years, Miss Anita has shown great patience, kindness, respect, and
consistency to Jake. He has always responded very well to her, which shows
me the bond that the two of the have formed. Two years later, my son, Jake
has tons of language. He can express himself quite well with very minimal
screaming. Jake can engage in a conversation with adults as well as his
peers. This has also helped his socially because he has many more
appropriate skills in which to interact with kids his own age. Jake can now
speak with emotion, get and tell jokes, and show his real personality.
I would like to personally thank The Speech Clinic and Miss Anita
specifically. She has helped my little boy in immeasurable ways!
Thank you for the enhancement of my ability to express myself.
