Decision Makers...

“LinkUp has been an effective service financially because it’s more affordable than the other companies we’ve seen that offer virtual speech….LinkUp offers consistency through their therapists….when our students see something that is consistent, they are more willing to learn….With the number of staff evaluations that our administrators are required to do, having the ability to not have one extra thing added to their plate has helped. All of the HR and personnel issues are dealt with by (LinkUp) so it’s not a responsibility on the district which frees up the ability to support the students….The personal relationships, the professional relationships that have been developed between the LinkUp staff and our staff has been just a wonderful experience.”

Dr. Gabrielle Schwemmer
District Superintendent

“LinkUp made it a point to come and listen to us. They listened to what our needs were and they developed a plan to fulfill those needs and they’ve come through quite effectively for us. The site visits and making it a point to get to know our students and our families and our speech language pathologist and our special education coordinator has been the most significant difference between LinkUp Teletherapy and the company we’ve used in the past.”

Educators...

“She (LinkUp therapist) is amazing. Parents love her and we would love to have her back.”

Amy Laramore
Elementary Principal

“I have nothing but positive to say (regarding LinkUp therapist), professional, knowledgeable, and personable. Parents have been complimentary as well.”

Scott Beckley
High School Principal

“Evansville is very appreciative of the work Dana has put in. She communicates well with all teachers, parents, and admin. With the Covid-19 closure she has continued helping students where possible. I really appreciate her and her hard work!”

Chris Miesner
Elementary Principal

“Casey brings so much knowledge and expertise to our district and has been an integral team player within our special education department working collaboratively with our other speech and language pathologist. Casey has weekly communication with me and always asks questions if not sure on procedural things tailored specifically to our district. Casey has developed a working relationship and positive rapport with her students and their family. We have enjoyed having Casey as part of our team this school year.”

Amy Howell
Special Education Coordinator

“Special ed in general is so difficult for people to understand who are not in the world…The fact that (linkUp) is owned by people who do speech language and who get it and who understand what those kids need is absolutely the most beneficial.”

Regarding the IEP process: “Justine has a very good relationship with the kids and she knows them. I sit in every IEP and listen and she’ll say little quirky things about them…They (LinkUp therapists) get how to form relationships with parents as well in the IEP meeting.”

Amy Laramore
Elementary Principal

Parents...

“My kids really like to work with you and we enjoyed the time spending with you while learning something new and fun. I think you are an excellent speech therapist, also a warm and kind person to be with. We have seen many therapists since (my son) was 2 years old ( 17 now) and you sure are one of the best. We may or may not see you again, nevertheless we will remember you for a long time.”

High School Parent

“Thank you so much! I truly appreciate you going beyond your therapy when the school year ended! I’ve listened a little during your meetings with (my daughter) and think you’re an amazing therapist and care so much about your kids! Thank you again!!”

“(My son) succeeded in having his first teletherapy session with Mr. Smith today for about 40 minutes. I listened in, but didn’t participate. I was VERY impressed with Mr. Smith’s instruction!! It is EXACTLY what (my son) needs – expressive language, articulating the answers to simple comparisons. (My son) just doesn’t TRUST his own answers. Anyway, I was also impressed by the logistics of teletherapy! (My son’s) chromebook speaker and camera don’t work, so I had Mr. Smith set it up on (his) phone. Worked very well today…At a time when e-learning has not worked well for (my son), having the teletherapy be so successful was a real treat!👍 I can also work with (my son) on these skills, now that I know what Mr. Smith is working on. We hope the teletherapy can continue to be part of (my son’s) IEP in future years.”
