What Parents Are Saying

My daughter has been doing Occupational Therapy since July. Our weekly sessions have truly been life changing not just for my daughter, but for our whole family.I did not go to the initial evaluation, but I will never forget the first words that... my husband said to me after the evaluation. He said, "Kathleen, they have names for all of the things you've been noticing." It was certainly a God moment that he went to the evaluation, because the evaluation alone opened his eyes to so many things.The first few weeks of therapy I was constantly saying, "Is this why......" I felt like our life was a box of puzzle pieces thrown all over the floor. However, during each week of therapy, the pieces began to come together, and everything started to make sense.Ms. Chandon is our therapist, and she is AMAZING! Going to therapy is the highlight of my daughter's week! Chandon has made tremendous progress with my daughter, and she has kept me in the loop every step of the way! I observe every session and takes notes, so that we can continue the exercises at home. Therapy isn't meant to be forever, but we don't want to break that news to my daughter yet. She will be heartbroken when we even start discussing that she is "graduating" from therapy!Everyone at Childsplay has been wonderful. I don't have a single negative thing to say. I am forever grateful for the help that my daughter has more

Childsplay Therapy Center has been wonderful! We are new to the area and everyone from the administrative assistants to the therapists have been amazing. My son worked with Kathryn Williams for his speech therapy and it was one of the first solid... connections he made with someone since we moved. He just fell in love with her. She is outgoing, enthusiastic, patient and genuinely cares. My son is excited to go to therapy every week. I could not have found a better place!read more

My daughter went to speech therapy at Child’s Play for almost three years. The experience we had was absolutely phenomenal. The front desk staff were very helpful and accommodating when I needed assistance. We couldn’t have asked for a better... therapist (Laura Cole). She was incredibly patient and kind with my daughter. Laura knew exactly how to help her with her needs and always went above and beyond. Especially during these difficult times of Covid and managing everything, she was always cheerful and excited to see our daughter. We will forever be grateful to her and would highly recommend Child’s Play for anyone needing extra care!read more

My son began speech and OT therapy services with Ms. Taylor and Ms. Ellisa in early 2020. The therapy center was well organized, and the staff clearly communicated appointment times, billing information, and COVID protocols. Ms. Taylor and Ms.... Ellisa went above and beyond to deliver therapy services during a pandemic. They were always available to explain each session and answer any questions. They responded quickly to any concerns we had, and were always working to come up with creative ways for our son to learn. They also encouraged and informed us as we walked through our first public school IEP process. I would highly recommend these more

My son has been attending Child’s Play Therapy for about 6 months. He receives Occupational Therapy (Lauren) and Speech Therapy (Taylor). He was struggling in school to keep up with peers in many areas and he would often show frustration in... communication. The progress we have seen him make has been incredible and so encouraging! It’s worth our time every week to make these appointments a priority, because we know Monday - Friday at school, continues to get better and better as he masters more skills. From the time we walk in, you know the staff (front office) to the treatment team is here because they care about making a difference in each childs life. They truly desire to see each child make progress, little or big, to them it’s important to celebrate with the child. So thankful we are a small piece of the Child’s Play family. It’s a great feeling to know your not alone in helping your child, a team of people are there to listen and support you who truly more

My son has been going here since we moved to the area a year ago. He had several speech errors to the point where only immediate family could understand him. He has made incredible progress and is able to communicate more with his peers. The... therapists are great with the kids; my son looks forward to coming to his sessions. They are also knowledgeable and great communicators with the parents so everyone is on the same page. The front desk staff is friendly and very more

My daughter has been going to Child’s Play for almost a year now and I can’t say enough great things about this therapy center. The front desk people are always very nice, considerate and understanding. Laura is our Speech therapist and she has been... amazing working with my daughter. I know she truly cares and wants to see her get better. She is very knowledgeable about her field. She has also been wonderful with helping me know how to help my daughter at home with speech activities too. In passing, I have met several of their OTs and other Speech therapists- they all seem very kind and friendly. I am an Occupational Therapy Assistant and I am VERY picky about therapists when it comes to them working with my daughter. Child’s Play has exceeded all of my expectations and more. I highly recommend!Jan 2020- I wanted to provide an update. Both of my kids have seen Bailey, OT and have been recently discharged due to meeting goals! Bailey is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and personable. She explained everything clearly and answered all my questions. She gave me resources and tools on things to do at home to help my kids. She was wonderful interacting with my kids. She truly cares, is very understanding and effective in her field. She also is proactive and strives to find solutions to any issues my kids faced. I am very thankful I chose Child’s Play for my kids’ therapy needs and will go back if we ever need to in the future. I highly recommend this place!read more
Better late than never! My daughter saw Laura Cole back in Feb/Mar for feeding therapy. She was a NICU baby and came home with a feeding tube because she failed multiple swallow tests, and just couldn't get the hang of taking a bottle. From the very... first time we saw Laura she made me feel so comfortable and was so wonderful with my baby. She went above and beyond for not only my daughter, but for me too. I'm forever grateful for Laura and Childsplay for helping me help my daughter eat! The whole staff here made a difficult time so much easier and treated us with love and respect. I highly recommend Childsplay Therapy.... these folks love what they do and it shows!read more

This is The Best Place to take your child to for Speech Therapy in North Alabama! We drove 40min. And it was worth every min. and every mile we drove. To receive the most wonderful care and therapy my son got from Mrs. Cole. It was truly a blessing... for my family that we found Child's Play Therapy Center! He was receiving speech therapy at his public school but it was in a group setting and he was not improving at all! So I started looking for something else. I wish we would have done child's play therapy first! It changed my son's life! He can speak so much better now! People can understand him now!! We love this place! I am forever greatful for Childs play therapy center!read more

We had a great experience here! My son saw Laura for speech. She was fantastic. She knew how to challenge him and help his speech develop all while he felt like he was just playing. She showed us, as parents, how to help him continue to progress... at home. We were amazed at his progress in 6 months. I can’t not recommend this place enough. more

Our family has worked with multiple speech and occupational therapists at Child's Play Therapy Center over the past year and a half. Our experiences have always been positive. The facility is always clean and welcoming. The front desk staff are well... organized and very personable. Each of the therapists we've worked with have been professional, skilled, open-minded, and most importantly deeply invested in the goals we work together to set for our children. We recommend them to anyone looking for speech or occupational therapy more

My wife and I highly recommend Child's Play Therapy Center. Two years ago when our son was four years old we discovered that he had some dexterity problems and couldn't hold a pencil or a crayon. Huntsville Christian Academy recommended Child's Play... Therapy Center and we started using them immediately. The therapist even goes to the school and performs the therapy during a real life classroom situation. Our son's therapist is amazing. If your child has a problem writing, holding a pencil or problems fidgeting with their fingers, then Child's Play Therapy Center is your more

We have been going to Childsplay Therapy Center coming up on a year now. The office staff is always friendly and helpful, everyone there is! We homeschool, so my other 3 children and I wait during her appointments, the staff is so patient with us... and kind.When we first started we didn't have much information on what exactly was going on with my daughter and what her needs were. The initial evaluation was very thorough and offered a lot of insight and direction. Her therapist was able to really help us understand our daughters needs.My daughter is seen for OT. Her therapist is amazing! She has really helped my daughter grow and develop, closing the gap in her delays. She has been very supportive of our daughter and our family as a whole. Her therapist is always willing to listen and offer advice and ideas to help further my daughters progress.When her therapist was going to be gone for a while, she was so great at making the change go smoothly and making sure my daughter was comfortable and ready to work with the new therapist.Our experience with the second therapist has been just as wonderful. They are so impressive not only with their knowledge and skills but with their compassion. They care and it shows!My daughter looks forward to her therapy and has learned the days of the week so she can count down to her next appointment :-). Childsplay Therapy Center has helped our daughter and us in innumerable ways and we are very grateful for their continued support and care in our more

I cannot say enough nice things about my son's therapist. We worked with Ms. Jenni right after my son turned 3. His speech development was below 18 months. After working with her for a year, he was up to 3.5 years. We stopped therapy (my choice) for... a year because his preschool was going to work with him. I called Ms. Jenni this past summer and he was re-tested at just over a 3 year old. He had zero growth in an entire year. Since this summer, he has grown another 6 months with his articulation.The manager is always very kind and helpful. My son LOVES his therapist more than his teachers, and we've always had a wonderful relationship. I cannot thank the staff at Child's Play enough for helping my son re-learn how to clearly/effectively communicate. We still have a ways to go but he is learning, loving, and having fun while developing his speech more

Before my son started taking speech therapy you could barely understand what he was saying, but since taking speech he was learned the correct way to use his tongue and mouth to make all the letter sounds correctly. He learns something new every... week and he loves showing his therapist. She makes working into playing which he loves, and he doesn't realize he is learning. I didn't know it was an issue that he couldn't talk well I thought it was just being a 5 year old, but after they evaluated him I knew we had to get speech therapy for him. It is really awesome how they teach him, and how well he takes to it. He really sounds like a grown up now and you can understand every word. Thanks Mrs. Jenni : ) We Love youread more
