Ally Zvibleman


Hi! I'm Ally. I grew up in New York, went to the University of Michigan undergraduate (Go Blue!), then completed my Master's at NYU in Communicative Sciences and Disorders-where I met Melissa. I spent several years working at a skilled nursing facility with adults before transitioning to work with children full time, specializing in building language, articulation, and social skills through play. After having my son Reid, and meeting other parents, I felt a strong need to share my knowledge of language skills with all parents and caregivers. Enter: @ReidandAnniePlay. Fast forward two years and add in my daughter Joey, and I am ready to share that knowledge in person, through speech specific designed classes that are lots of fun!




Melissa Hyman


Hi ya'll! I'm Melissa. I grew up in Atlanta, went to the University of Texas (hook 'em horns), the completed my masters at NYU in Communicative Sciences and Disorders. The majority of my career as a Speech Language Pathologist has been in pediatric hospitals, working with children across development- from the NICU all the way to high school-with a large focus in feeding and swallowing disorders. When my daughter Annabelle was born 3.5 years ago, I rediscovered my love for child development + play. Now, as a mother of two, with the addition of my 1 year old son Austin, I am so excited to share this love and skill set in person with all of you!
