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.

I truly cannot say enough good things about Child's Play. Both of my children have seen different therapists here, and both are FANTASTIC.My son had issues with nursing after about two months and was struggling to gain weight. I was referred to... Jessi for infant feeding therapy, and the impact she has made on our family is incredible. My son went from almost having to have a NG tube placed due to falling in the weight percentile chart each week and having a huge aversion to nursing to now gaining so well, rising on the weight percentile chart, and is all around a happier baby. She helped pinpoint exactly where he was having trouble with nursing and what was causing him to be averse and went over different positions for holding him, positioning me, using pillows, literally ALL the things. She had so many helpful tips and tricks to make it easier! My son ended up being a very lazy nurser, just like my daughter was, so we transitioned to bottles. My help from Jessi didn't stop there- we worked through what type bottles and nipple flow worked best for him to help him take more milk more efficiently and comfortably as well as reduce his blisters on his mouth. She found a suspected tongue tie and made suggestions there, and sure enough, we got that addressed, and it made a huge difference! Overall, Jessi was a miracle worker for my son and I, and I can't thank her enough! I would have stopped nursing so much sooner if it hadn't been for her, so I'm eternally grateful to her for helping me keep my nursing journey going as long as I chose!On to my daughter- we saw Savannah for physical therapy due to my daughter struggling with core strength, toe walking, and stability. Savannah made it SO fun for her every session while addressing her weaknesses. My daughter didn't even realize she was having to work on things because Savannah just made it seem like they were playing. She was able to build trust with my daughter SO quickly and is so personable and kind. She pinpointed my daughter's physical weaknesses quickly and addressed them efficiently. She was wonderful at explaining what she was working on with her to me so that I could carry it over at home as well. I'm so grateful to both of these wonderful therapists for all they have done for my kids! I'm one happy mama!read more

Our family has had a wonderful experience at Childs Play. We specifically used OT for our 12 year old. The weekly OT plan was well thought out and targeted our specific concerns. Highly recommend.

We had a great experience in physical therapy with Savannah. She gave us information and tools we needed to help our son strengthen and learn to use various muscles. We began to see results very quickly; within the first month he was crawling well... on his own and showed improvement with transitions. Within four months, he met all of his goals and was walking independently. It was a great experience watching him learn what his body was capable of doing and building the confidence to do it on his own. The staff was always very kind and helpful!read more

We love Child’s Play! Our speech therapist, Allyson Pasternack, is amazing. These past two years my son was in a season of life where he needed counseling about his stuttering as much as practice using certain strategies to get through a stutter. I... wanted him to be comfortable talking about his stutter and to understand that this is just something that is a part of who he is, to accept it and move on with being the person that God wants him to be. Mrs. Pasternack helped tremendously with this effort and I have seen my son’s confidence level rise over the last two years. He’s doing great and I feel like we armed him with the best tools for success by taking him to Child’s Play. Thank you!!read more

I LOVE CHILD’S PLAY!! Sorry to be one of those people that write in all caps but IT IS SO TRUE. My daughter has been going to Child’s Play for the past two years. I have seen tremendous growth in her from the start till now. All the therapists are... professional, kind, and caring. The staff at the front desk are warm and welcoming. They also don’t get annoyed when I ask all the questions. I HIGHLY recommend Child’s Play. We actually drive about 45 minutes weekly so my daughter can do therapy there. We love it that more

Child's Play Therapy Center is amazing. The two ladies at the front desk are very helpful and friendly. The building is very clean as well. My child's therapist, Chandon, is always so happy to see us and interested in what my child is doing away... from therapy. She makes therapy fun and entertaining. I am very pleased at the progress my child has made in therapy which has translated to him making progress at school. I would definitely recommend Child's Play Therapy to anyone looking for a great Occupational more

Our therapist, Chandon, has been great. She is caring, helpful, and really cares about seeing progress in our son. I'm thankful we found Child'sPlay, it truly has changed how our son handles his emotions.
They do such a great job. Our daughter has been going for speech for the past year and the difference it has made is life changing. Ms. Kathryn is amazing! Our daughter can’t wait to go back every week.

My son has been in speech and OT therapy at child’s play. He absolutely love both of his therapists. The whole staff is friendly and truly care for your child and what the goals you have for him. They have included me every step of the way to ensure... that we are all on the same page for his goals and accomplishments. They celebrate these accomplishments just as much as I do as a parent. If I have ever had any concerns they have addressed them with me. I could never speak highly enough of the staff or services we receive. I am always welcomed by the front desk. My son adores his therapist. The director of the clinic Laura has been amazing with all of her help as well!read more

We are beyond grateful to be part of the CPTC family. Everyone we've worked with are well trained and so patient. Our son started as mostly non-verbal, unable to feel temperatures and regulate his body. His speech has gown leaps and bounds and I can... not say enough about how much our OT has helped with his Sensory Processing and ADHD. There is great communication about goals and incorporating parent and developmental physician's goals in therapy. Their summer camps provide a safe atmosphere for interacting with peers while working on social goals. And the Integrated Listening System they offer has made a huge difference in attention, comprehension and ability to converse with classmates. Also, they continually participate in training and conferences throughout the year to keep up with the latest advances. We love the CPTC team!read more

I have two little ones that go to Child’s Play for speech therapy. My older one is on the spectrum and started there almost non verbal. The difference in her is astonishing! We love, love, love our therapists and we’re so lucky we were referred here... by a friend. They have absolutely changed our lives and helped our girls so much. They have fun and learn so much.The office staff are all kind and accommodating and make payments and insurance all so easy on you.We also did OT/feeding therapy for almost a year and would definitely recommend this as well. You can truly see that all of these people care about you and your more

We LOVE Child’s Play. Everyone is so kind and caring. The therapists genuinely care about the children they are working with and want them to succeed. We tried other options for speech and occupational therapies that were closer to our home but none... compared. We would drive as far as we had to to get back here, because you can’t beat Child’s Play!read more

We have been coming to Child's Play for about 2.5 years. Our son has autism & receives speech with Allyson and OT with Alyssa. We've also seen Brooke who is so great as well. His progress has been amazing & he's come so far from when we first... started and looks forward to therapy each week. Susie is the best at scheduling and Elizabeth is always welcoming and so friendly. They're basically family and we are so lucky to have them, wouldn't go anywhere else!read more

My son started Speech Therapy here a few months ago. After just a few visits our SLP, Jessie Garzarek, figured out the underlying issue for his speech delay. As a mom I felt like it was a breakthrough and there was light at the end of the tunnel.... Thus far we have LOVED kids play and we love our SLP, Jessie. We are so thankful and each week we notice progress and she gives us great ways to help him at home. I am so thrilled to see how much progress he makes this more

Our daughter has been receiving OT services through Child’s Play for 2 1/2 years for fine motor challenges due to tremors in her hands. The improvement in her fine motor skills are nothing short of amazing. Her last report card reflected the... improvement but more importantly her self confidence has improved and now she begs to do art and craft activities which she once was afraid to do. We love Child’s more

Laura is a fantastic occupational therapist with my 2 year old daughter. We have been seeing her since Claire was discharged from NICU. Laura has helped us with feeding issues, including learning how to drink from a bottle and a cup, as well as fine... motor skills. Laura has provided tangible activities that we can use in our everyday lives. It is hard to believe how much progress Claire has made in her short little life and Laura has been a critical part of that more
