A child-centered approach to help your child grow to be their best self!



Layna Lovelady, MS, OTR/L

Occupational Therapist

Layna is the owner and occupational therapist at Able Me! She loves serving children with disabilities, differences and special needs in the Birmingham area.

Therapy should be challenging and rewarding, but most importantly, it should be fun! Children are able to learn and grow when they are in a fun, joyful and uplifting environment.

Children at Able Me feel safe.  They feel seen. They feel challenged, and it's there that they can be their best selves.
