"In a few sessions, Wendy was able to help our second grader overcome a long-standing speech problem that was a continuing source of frustration and embarrassment for him. He had had little success in bi-weekly school and private speech therapy. However, Wendy was quickly able to help him hear and replicate the correct articulation of the /r/ sound. After the first session, my son was motivated to practice on his own and he now has the confidence to speak without fear that others will not understand him. - Parent
Wendy's approach is perfect for children, like my son, who have become discouraged because their speech therapy has not resolved their articulation issues. She is patient and kind, and very focused on results. In this way, she helped my son develop the resources he needed to help himself.
I highly recommend her as a speech therapist." - Carol
Wendy is truly a gift- her passion for the children she works with as well as the animals she introduces into the therapy setting is heartwarming and heaven-sent. She makes therapy enjoyable for the kids, and rewarding for the parents. Such a unique and special environment could only be provided in a community such as this one. Thank you! - Bekah
"Pegasus Farm is so much more fun than your usual therapy clinic. They work therapy into play time with animals. My son doesn't even realize he is doing therapy." - Sarah
From the first call to inquire about speech services, I knew this is where I wanted my grandson to have therapy. The farm is a peaceful, nurturing environment. Wendy and Miguel have established such warm rapport and trust with this 2 1/2 year old child - the whole experience is pure positive energy. I especially appreciate Wendy's expertise in both traditional and alternative approaches to speech therapy as well as her ability to engage and motivate very young children. Week by week we observe developmental progress in this little one's communication and self confidence. I am truly thankful. S. Montero
I am a father of one to a two-year-old named Levi who deals with apraxia. When other therapy methods just weren’t working, we discovered a treatment strategy called hippotherapy that uses the movement of the horse during speech therapy sessions. Not knowing what to expect, we were amazed to pull up to a beautiful country home in the heart of the South Valley. Definitely different then past therapy appointments we’ve had that usually took place in a hospital setting. Almost always it would trigger Levi to immediately close himself off to learning. After meeting Wendy Buckels of Pegasus Therapy, we immediately saw how calm and connected she was with Levi. After only a short period of time with her, he was imitating sounds and interacting with her. Watching them work together surrounded by goats, chickens and horses, really allowed Levi to open himself to wanting to learn new things. After only two months, Levi has learned an abundance of new sign language signs and has started imitating words. He gets excited to see Wendy every week and really looks forward to every session with her. And as a parent to be able to see your child start to overcome his challenges in life. There is no greater reward than that. We are extremely lucky to have Wendy a part of our team and would recommend her to anyone. - Ben Gonzales
