I listened to your pod cast regarding providing 5 minute therapy to address articulation. I thought your feedback was very helpful and the links you provided were also useful tools to review the two programs you referred to. I definitely am considering using both programs next year.

Your pod cast just helped me confirm I am heded down the right track. I look forward to listening to additional pod casts you present.
