I can't say enough good things about Child's Play in Hoover! Our daughter started seeing Ms.... Shelley for speech almost 1.5 years ago. We have since started seeing Ms. Kimberly as well. Both Shelley and Kimberly have been absolute angels and have helped our daughter SO much! We are so very thankful for all of the hard work they have put into helping our family. I'd also like to praise the office staff as they have always been the sweetest and kindest every time I have had to reach out to them, which has been a lot!read more

I love this Therapy Center. We bounced around couple of places, before we were referred to them.... Everyone has been wonderful. I've never had a bad experience. Alisha, Swayze, and Parker have always been so nice when we check in or have questions. Katie helped us get onboard at the beginning, and it was so easy to get set up.We see Kathryn for Speech, and she has been so wonderful. She ranks as one of my son's most favorite people. He tells everyone at school about her, and is excited to go to therapy. She does such a fantastic job of coaxing him into the work through play, that he genuinely enjoys himself.I've had the opportunity to see a couple of the other Speech therapists, as well, once or twice. It's always been a positive experience. Everyone that we've met has been so great. Each therapist has their own persepective, personality, and approach, but my son has been receptive with everyone he's worked with.read more

The Chelsea location of Child’s Play is wonderful! The counselors and therapists are very kind,... personable, and helpful - making a difference for kids and parents. But the best part of this location is Elizabeth in the front office - from your first phone call to every question or need that arises through your time here. She listens well and immediately puts you at ease when you are trying to find the right fit for services for your child. She goes above and beyond to get to know and build relationships with everyone - clients, parents, and even siblings. It’s a joy to see her care for the families that come through here. It’s one thing to find great therapists, but having that plus someone as great as Elizabeth on the front end makes this location exceptional.read more

The staff is incredible. And we’ve worked with a number of them!Before my child had a consistent... spot, we rotated through different therapists, and we loved them all! When we settled into a routine with Mary Kate Galloway, we started to see marked improvements. She was so helpful to us in understanding our child’s needs and navigating his educational struggles.When she went on maternity leave, we worried that transition might be hard in our child. Instead, he gelled with Denise Dixon immediately, and his work with her has been amazing as well! We just got a report from school that blew me away. How has my child made so much progress??These folks are the real deal. Not judgy. Super practical. Absolute wizards with kids.Once I saw my child starting to have a meltdown as we were about to leave. Y’all. I had to take notes. It was amazing to watch Denise execute the strategies we’d been talking about. So many lightbulb moments (ohhhh so THAT’S how you avoid a power struggle while still setting a boundary!).Love these folks. So skilled. So dang good.read more

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

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

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 received.read more

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 therapists.read more
