Denise has been in our life as a speech-language pathologist for almost four years. She has always been a terrific resource of information, empathy and hope. As a parent of an autistic child, I was always seeking answers to questions relating to my daughter's behaviors and speech problems. Denise is always eager to help me find answers. She single-handedly developed the PALS (Pragmatic Acquisition of Language Skills) language and social skills program for children and it has been wonderful! We are so grateful to have her in our lives! The program has helped our daughter tremendously and all the parents in the Pals program are in awe of the gracious, natural way Denise teaches our children. I feel she was born to do this! We have learned so much from watching her interact with our kids and from what and how she teaches them. I truly feel without her guidance, teachings and programs we would have a different child! Our daughter has come a long way since our first meeting with Denise. Her dedication to children is amazing, her understanding and devotion to helping kids makes her a hero!
Denise, thank you so much for your wonderful Service Excellence and all you do for the patients and families at All Children's Hospital. Congratulations for receiving the March 2009 Employee of the Month honors!
