    review rating 5  We have a child who has received services at BDI Playhouse (speech, OT and PT) for about a year and a half now. I would highly recommend BDI playhouse to other families. First of all, we have absolutely LOVED each of the therapists we have worked with. They clearly care about our child’s progress and are always willing to answer my questions and provide ideas or suggestions as needed. I also appreciate that they will communicate amongst themselves to discuss my son’s goals and to make sure we’re looking at the big picture. He has made tremendous progress during his time at BDI. They are also excellent at helping me navigate other options to explore. One of BDI’s biggest strengths is that their office staff is as wonderful as their therapists. We recently went through a frustrating insurance issue where we needed to obtain approval for additional PT sessions. Insurance was (surprise surprise) slow to address the matter but the wonderful team at BDI did a ton of work on their end to get the approval for additional sessions. They even held my son’s spot for weeks and weeks to ensure that he could be seen again as soon as the matter was resolved. I really appreciate how they helped me navigate this problem. I also want to touch on the fact that BDI offers some unique services. They do bike riding lessons, offer some aquatic therapy, feeding therapy, and they have several classes you can sign your child up for to help further their progress. They also offer a monthly gait clinic and will help you obtain orthotics as needed. Finally, their new facility is awesome, super clean and has a nice large waiting room. We have several options for therapy that our closer to us, but we are happy to be working with BDI!

    review rating 5  Highly recommend the infant classes at BDI! The therapists are so knowledgeable and welcoming and as a new mom, I really appreciated having professionals guide me through exercises and problem solving. The cost is definitely manageable and it is a great way to meet other parents.

    review rating 5  Our son was a patient at BDI for 3.5 years and we had an outstanding experience there. His therapists were so patient with him and helped us understand his diagnosis and how we could support him at home. They were very knowledgeable and always willing to try new things and answer our questions. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and our son made huge gains because of the knowledge, patience, persistence, and dedication of his therapists at BDI. Since his discharge, I've had several follow up questions and even though he is no longer a patient, they are still willing to offer advice and support. I can't recommend BDI highly enough!
