The founder of Princeton Playspace, Alpin Rezvani M.A., CCC-SLP, grew up in the Princeton area. After 14 years of living in New York City, Alpin and her husband moved back to the area with their 1-year old Roman. As parents, they felt there was a need for a unique indoor playspace and birthday party venue that would meet the high standards of families near and far and make both children and parents happy. After much research, they came up with the concept of Princeton Playspace, where children are free to play, learn, imagine, socialize, and explore while their parents can relax, catch up on e-mails, enjoy a cup of coffee, and more!
Alpin Rezvani is also a speech pathologist and co-founder of Gift of Gab Resources. She graduated from New York University with a Baccalaureate and Masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology. Alpin holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (ASHA) and has New Jersey and New York licensure in Speech-Language Pathology. She was an adjunct instructor at New York University and a speech-language pathologist for the New York City Department of Education early on in her career. She now practices privately and has co-authored three chapters (Community-Based Speech-Language Pathology; Joint Action Routines; Feeding & Language Strategies for Mealtime) in the latest version of "Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism”. Alpin is trained in PROMPT, Talk Tools, Sequential Oral Sensory Feeding Approach (SOS), Picture Exchange Communication System, Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), assistive technology, and more. She co-writes monthly articles for Big City Moms and MommyBites and is the co-author of iBook and eBook series such as Baby Actions and Baby Feelings, which focuses on learning language through pictures and videos. Alpin also provides speech and language workshops for families and professionals throughout the Tri-State area.
Using her extensive speech and language development background, Princeton Playspace is filled with tons of language enrichment opportunities ranging from social skills playgroups, a "Word of the Week", print-rich environments, and more!
