"If my possessions would be taken from me with one exception I would choose to keep the power of communication, for by it, I would soon regain all the rest."
As a speech-language pathologist, I absolutely love this quote! It truly illustrates the critical nature of our ability to communicate. Many of us do not comprehend the value of our communicative abilities until they are compromised, or even lost completely.
At Speech By The Beach Consulting LLC in Naples, Florida, we strive to provide clients access to their highest level of communicative abilities. Whether this is related to speech, voice, word-finding or even public speaking, it is our mission to enhance and restore your communication.
