Our Administrative Staff

Take a moment to learn about all of the wonderful people who work behind the scenes here at Child’sPlay Therapy Center in Birmingham! Without their dedication and support we would surely fall short of our mission to help your child thrive.

ChildsPlay Therapy Center

Our Therapists

Get acquainted with the friendly faces of our Birmingham therapists! These gifted clinicians all share something in common, which is a passion for helping children. All our therapists are trained and experienced in various areas of pediatric therapy.

physical therapy

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy helps kids improve strength, motor function, balance, and coordination. Developmental delays may be inhibiting your child from performing age-appropriate activities. Our pediatric physical therapists help children reach gross-motor developmental milestones with activities centered around their individual needs.

speech therapy

Speech Therapy

Pediatric speech and language pathologists evaluate, promote, and treat communication challenges, both receptive and expressive. Our speech therapists are trained in treating children with delays in both language and articulation and promote their highest level of communication.

occupational therapy

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is designed to help children overcome barriers that affect their emotional, social, and physical needs. Our Birmingham pediatric occupational therapists are rigorously trained to help children become more independent in an uplifting and meaningful environment.



Our pediatric therapists specialize in working with children who are experiencing depression, anxiety, behavior disorder, or any other mental health issues. Through an individualized and therapeutic environment, we provide a safe space to help work with children.

Lactation and Infant Feeding

Our feeding therapists specialize in a holistic understanding of your baby’s sensory and motor skills, co-regulation, ideal positioning, and the structure and functions of the mouth that are vital to a successful infant feeding journey.

I cannot accurately express how grateful I am for everyone at Child’s Play! My child has received every therapy offered by them with a high rate of success! Taylor and Jessi were amazing at helping us address feeding and speech issues. Jessi has a... calm, nurturing approach to dealing the children and parents! The progress my child has made in the last 7 months of speech therapy is remarkable, and something we never expected! Emily has allowed my child to thrive thanks to the physical therapy she provided! Katy has helped my child work through sensory, fine motor, and behavioral challenges in occupational therapy! And Misty is always so sweet and welcoming when we call or come in. Seriously, this is an all-around great place to receive services!read more

I have two kids that attend there!My middle son has done speech with Mrs. Shelley and OT with Mrs. Teresa. Shelley is very knowledgeable about speech and has helped my son to be able to talk where we can understand him.Teresa has always made his... sessions fun and exciting! She prints activities based on the toy he brings that week.My younger son sees Elinor for speech. She makes his therapy fun with games and toys. She makes interactive booklets to help him with certain phrases.My kids really enjoy going there.
