"The most important key for early intervention to work is having the right therapist. Carmen is an outstanding therapist and definitely one of the best! When my son started therapy, he was completely non-verbal with no eye-contact at all. Through Carmen’s hard work and dedication, my son learned to talk in a matter of few months. I knew he was in there somewhere waiting to come out, and with Carmen’s help, I can now have a conversation with him. My family and I will forever be grateful!"

"I have so many good things to say about Carmen. She has had lots of experience with various speech and language disorders in children and is very knowledgeable in her field. She makes therapy fun and engaging for the children she treats and is very creative at her therapy materials. I enjoy learning her therapy techniques and often would seek her for advice in treatment of my therapy kiddos. She is a very dedicated speech therapist and enjoys what she does."
- Ashley Lockart, Speech-Language Pathologist

"There really are not enough words to describe Carmen's passion for working with children and their families to improve communication! She has a unique way of combining learning with fun and adapting it to each child's interests and skill level, allowing children to succeed and build confidence. Carmen would be my first choice in pediatric SLPs!"
- Amanda Paul, Speech-Language Pathologist

"Carmen Rathert has had the greatest impact on Logan's life outside of our home. She was always thorough, set clear goals and saw to it that what she did in session and what we did at home was always in sync. The impact she had on Logan and our family is not only felt now, but will contribute to any and all of his future successes. She is forever a part of his story and we are grateful every day for her hard work and personal investment in his growth."
- Allison Ferro, parent

"I have worked with Carmen Rathert for several years in the Warrensburg R-VI School district. I am an Early Childhood Special Education teacher and Carmen was the ECSE Speech/Language therapist. When Carmen walked into my room, all the children wanted to go with her. Her therapy sessions were always fun for the children and they were excited to be with her. Carmen took an interest in every child, researching what technique or method would produce the best results for each individual child. She was a wonderful asset to our team, exhibiting excellent rapport with other teachers, parents and children served by our school. If your child is in need of speech/language services I would highly recommend Carmen Rathert as a professional who will treat your child and family with the utmost of care and respect."
- Cheri Marr, ECSE Teacher, Warrensburg Public School
"Carmen Rathert is the ultimate professional. She is aware of appropriate child development expectations and milestones as well as DESE and private practice criterion. She is able to meet each new child at their current level and then lovingly build from there to reach each milestone. Mrs. Rathert has the ability to evaluate each child and then implement the best practice for their individual needs. Equally as important, she is able to read each child and know how to motivate them to do their best in order to reach individual goals and attain each higher level skill set. She is able to do all of this in a fun, engaging atmosphere where the children know they are with someone who truly cares for them. Mrs. Rathert stays up to date with new practices and strategies through her contacts with professional organizations and resources. I would highly recommend Mrs. Carmen Rathert for her services as a Speech/Language Pathologist."
