See What Our Therapists & Employees Say
“Truly a great company that has it all: kind work culture, excellent clinicians, and leadership that supports and cares about its people. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to start my clinical fellowship. Even during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, the opportunities for growth and support were top-notch. Sumlar is now the gold standard by which I measure!”
— Former Speech-Language Pathologist
“Sumlar is one of the most rewarding jobs that I have ever had. Every day, I get to see kids grow and learn. I’ve been blessed to watch so many kids blossom into happy, healthy young adults with bright futures using the new life skills that they learn here. The hippotherapy program is especially rewarding because it makes such huge strides for the kids involved. Overall, I leave work every day with a sense of pride, knowing that I helped to make a difference.”
“I started out as a new grad at Sumlar and really enjoyed my time working there. If I ever had a question, there was always someone eager to help. It was a great work environment and I was surrounded by therapists that really cared for the children. I really liked the fact that there are three disciplines there (OT, PT, and Speech) to collaborate. I also think it’s important to mention that this clinic has aquatic and hippotherapy which was one of my favorite parts about this clinic. I enjoyed my time at Sumlar and learned so much there!”
— Former Sumlar Occupational Therapist
“Sumlar is very supportive of everything from providing training, having a friendly working environment with co-workers, and having a boss who is available for honest, helpful feedback if you have questions. Great place for new grads to learn and grow their clinical experience!”
— Former Sumlar Speech-Language Pathologist
“I worked for Sumlar PRN and covering some maternity leave while my husband attended the Captain’s Career Course at Fort Rucker. I was quickly welcomed by the rest of the staff and made to feel like one of the team, even though I was only working a few days a week. I have yet to find another clinic as comprehensive as this one…clinic-based or school-based, hippotherapy, aquatic therapy, they do it all! I loved my time there and still miss working there to this day!”
