Who We Are
Early Bird is a family-owned, family-focused company whose mission is to provide the highest quality functional intervention to infants and children in their natural environment.
Early Bird began in 2005 as Early Bird Speech & Language Services, with Sherry Seitlin Kornfeld providing early intervention speech and language therapy to infants and toddlers and their families.
In 2007, Early Bird expanded to offer speech-language and occupational therapy through independent therapists and became Early Bird Developmental Services, and in 2009, began working with Horse N Around TherapeuticRidingCenter to offer hippotherapy for speech-language therapy and for occupational therapy.
Early Bird continued to grow by leaps and bounds, and in 2012 acquired Capable Kids Home Therapy Co. Today our staff and independent therapists are proud to offer a variety of services to meet the needs of children ages birth to 21. We provide therapies at a number of schools and daycare centers in Charlotte and surrounding areas.
It is our goal to provide our patients with the best and affordable therapy services possible. Early Bird accepts Medicaid and HealthChoice and is in-network with a number of commercial insurance companies. We will check your benefits to be sure we are a good match for your insurance. We will file your insurance claim and will work with you on payment arrangements should your insurance not pay for services. Our staff will obtain any necessary pre-certification and/or authorizations needed prior to the initiation of therapy services.
