Silver Linings Neurodevelopment Clinic

Silver Linings Neurodevelopment

We are a team-based clinic, located in Huntsville Alabama, devoted to the evaluation & treatment of various mental and behavioral health differences among children and adults.

Having a team-based approach is the key feature within our clinic. Outside of a hospital or university setting, we are one of the few clinics in North Alabama where our clients’ care is shaped by a number of disciplines, including speech therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, and counseling. We have regular team-meetings to discuss treatment planning and goal setting, which allows your one clinician to consider many aspects to your care. It also allows for quick referrals to another discipline, such as counseling to speech, within the comforts of a familiar setting. Clients are always assigned one clinician within each needed area of expertise, but that clinician may consult with other disciplines, as needed.

Kimberly M.

We have had nothing but wonderful experiences with them. They have done testing for three of our children and I feel like we got the answers we were looking for. They met each child where they were to get the testing needed. I love that they test with a team approach. Everyone was kind and welcoming and when it came time to get the results they took the time to make sure we understood everything and answered all of our questions.

Lela B.

As a homeschool family, Silver Linings provided exactly to kind of support that we needed to get answers and solutions to a few of the issues we were facing. The staff were all helpful and polite. Billing was made clear and they helped us navigate insurance issues. I would recommend them to others.

My daughter has had a wonderful experience at Silver Linings. She is working with Brooke Sorrells, Speech and Language Pathologist, to improve her verbal social skills. 2 months ago I would have never thought that a speech pathologist could help her with her social skills, but she is improving so much thanks to Brooke's work with her!

Megan B.

Silver Linings is the perfect name for this office! These amazing women go above and beyond for you. The whole office from the receptionist to the doctors take the time to know you and your child. They REALLY listen and want to use their knowledge to help. Here you are not just another patient. (Also, They take a variety of insurances. So don't let that stop you from calling.) They provide the gold standard testing like Sparks and Glenwood without being put on a year long waiting list.
