  1. I cannot say enough about Paper Plane Therapies. They not only treat my son like their own, they provide outstanding speech therapy services. And they work with you to get your insurance carrier to approve the therapy when it was previously denied. I see improvements weekly with Liam’s speech and interaction with others. I owe Paper Plane Therapies the world.
