“My two-year-old son just received his first treatment at Playtao Joyland. I’m really grateful for this opportunity as our family could not afford the expensive treatments offered at private centers and the wait for Government services is way too long. The speech therapist was very attentive to the needs of my child and taught me some practical tips on how to care for him. I truly recommend Playtao Joyland to families who are looking for an affordable and professional treatment for their child! “
