“We made the move because we wanted to grow into a larger practice and offer more services,” Calvalcante said. “By moving we were able to have more people on staff and more space.”
The speech-language pathologists opened for business at their original location, on Bay Ridge Parkway between Fourth and Fifth avenues, last March, and only offered speech therapy. But at Play and Say’s new location, the speech pathologists offer individual and group speech, occupational, and physical therapies for youngsters of all ages who have autism and sensory-processing disorder, according to Calvalcante. The space includes a sensory gym complete with brightly colored trampolines, ball pits, and climbing walls to aid tykes in their speech development, the co-owner added.
Standing O offers congratulations Connors and Cavalcante on their expansion and wishes them a successful future!
