"MindScent® is especially good for children who are non-verbal” - Angel DeRuvo, MA CCC SLP PLLC, Staten Island, NY

We can target things such as using a communication device or generating higher level writing activities which has been an exciting way to meet goals!" - Heather Palazzo, Speech Pathologist, MS CCC SLP, New Orleans, LA
