Truly love helping the kids progress & succeed

He loved going to therapy for the post part except on days where he wasn’t in a good mood but was always happy when he came out. He really enjoyed it. He went into speech not being able to communicate with us outside of pointing, he now speaks in sentences for the most part and can ask for help/communicate what he wants & comprehends better when spoken to. I was very pleased. I was always given an update when the session was over and informed about what went on during each session & all questions were always answered. If a change in schedule needed to be made, it was always quick, pleasant and with understanding instead of irritation like most places. I remember the first string of 5 words that he spoke (GreyGrey hit me head again) and when we were able to share this at his next session his therapist (Ms.Simone) joined in the excitement! It was easy to see that the therapists enjoy their time and truly love helping the kids progress & succeed.

Words of praise and affirmation go a long way!

Extremely pleasant and fun! Courtney, PT was an absolute treasure to work with, and I always felt encouraged and informed about my child’s progress. Words of praise and affirmation go a long way. As a first time mom, I often question whether or not the decisions I make are the best decisions or the most correct. I always left our sessions feeling very affirmed and supported by Courtney, PT as she consistently praised the hard work we were doing at home because it showed in our progress toward treatment goals. All of the homework and practice truly does make perfect, and I’m happy to see our six month old meeting and, at times, surpassing her milestones. I can’t sing the praises of Building Futures enough!

After this one evaluation, I have already seen improvements

10/10 recommend Lactation consultant and OT Anna Dearman at Building Futures! My breastfed 2-month-old has been struggling with lots of gas and discomfort for the last month. This has resulted in constant fussiness throughout the day which has left me feeling terrible for my hurting baby and defeated at times. After trying probiotics and going through several bottles of gas drops, we decided to get an evaluation to see if he was latching appropriately at the breast. Anna performed an oral motor assessment and observed him while breastfeeding. She was then able to help me find a feeding position that encouraged a better latch to prevent air from being swallowed and ultimately prevent gas. After this one evaluation, I have already seen improvements in my baby’s feedings such as being able to complete an entire feed without becoming fussy and squirming at the breast! Anna also referred us to a dentist to help address some structural issues but I’ve already noticed an improvement and haven’t even seen the dentist yet! Cannot recommend Anna enough!!

My son has made tremendous progress

My son needed occupational therapy and speech therapy, and they have been great from the very beginning! They are very understanding, compassionate, and full of FUN! My son absolutely LOVES going here, and sees it as something other than therapy.

Because of Covid-19 restrictions, I have not been inside but their outside equipment is something even I wouldn’t mind spending time on! An in-ground trampoline, custom-built play area, basketball area with an obstacle course drawn on the course, as well as multiple riding toys that I’ve seen outside for multiple abilities. Like I said, FUN!

My son has made tremendous progress, as well! He enjoys his time there and I’m going to hate to have to say goodbyes.

We absolutely love it here!

My daughter has been receiving speech and OT therapy from Building Futures for over a year. We absolutely love it here! My daughter practically jumps out of the car when we pull up and she cries when it’s time to leave. That makes a momma’s heart so happy to know my girl is receiving the best therapy from the best therapists! We love Mrs. Hayley and Mrs. Melanie!

I couldn’t be happier

Not only is this an amazing place to work but the care and love given to each child is amazing. Alaina came early and required a short NICU stay. Around 4 months, we noticed she was developing some torticollis and needed a little extra help. Morgan sees Alaina for physical therapy and has gone above and beyond with her sessions and giving me ideas for treatment at home. Morgan has been our cheerleader, celebrating every milestone and new skill achievement. I couldn’t be happier with all the progress we have made.

Such a blessing for our family

Building Futures has been such a blessing for our family. My son is one year old with Down Syndrome, and the team at Building Futures has shown so much confidence and professionalism in their knowledge of Down Syndrome and the need for early intervention. As a mother, I am at peace when I hand my son over to the pediatric therapists because I know he is in the best care while growing and reaching new goals!

The support and service we received from Building Futures has made a difference!

A top facility for NELA, hands down. My daughter has been receiving PT, OT, and Speech therapy from BF since she was discharged from a 6 month stay in the NICU. She was a 1lb micropreemie at birth. Today she is 4 years old, and meeting practically every milestone. I have no doubt the support and service we received from Building Futures has made a difference!

The staff are all amazingly sweet!

I love this place! My daughter uses physical, occupational, and speech therapies all from here. The staff are all amazingly sweet and my daughter enjoys her time with her therapists each week. She’s doing leaps and bounds better now than she was when she started and it’s all because of her care that she’s received in her sessions. I would definitely recommend Building Futures to anyone needing therapy services!

They make therapy so fun with the amount of energy they display!

I am truly thankful and blessed for all the Therapists at Building Futures. My son has been receiving therapy there for about 5 years now and the staff and therapists are extremely friendly, loving, understanding, and informative. They set goals for my child and come up with a plan that works for him and he’s been making nothing but progress and moving forward since he’s been at Building Futures! I love the progression my son has made. They make therapy so fun with the amount of energy they display! The environment is so energetic and playful! They are the absolute best! I love them!

I’m so thankful for them

My son has been in speech therapy since October of 2019 with Building Futures. Erica Andrews been so wonderful with him. He has made so much progress since beginning therapy. He loves his therapist so much and is so excited to go in, which shows me just how great she is with him! He has recently started occupational therapy and has only received one session but so far Anna seems great! Before Covid, the children in the waiting room would be so excited and run to hug their therapists when they would call them back. There is so much love and care within that building! I’m so thankful for them and the work that they do! I definitely recommend Building Futures.
