Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Bram Speech and Language!
Four questions with Allyson Mahoney, founder of Bram Speech and Language.
Why did you start your business?
I started my business to help parents find a convenient impactful individualized program to help their children with their speech-language needs.
What is your best-selling product/service?
We offer both teletherapy and home-based visits. In the past two years, teletherapy has been becoming increasingly popular!
How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?
When appropriate, I buy games from local stores such as Elm Street Books and the New Canaan Toy Store.
Have you reimagined your small business?
Knowing how busy local families are, we have done our best to be a boutique company and cater to the specific needs of every family we work with. This means flexible scheduling and bringing therapists to where the kids are instead of having kids travel to an office. Working in a natural, home environment also helps kids generalize skills best!
