As one of the best speech therapy clinics in Chicago, we know that communication with your child is vital. We work on helping your child improve their speech and language development to create meaningful relationships.
Communication is part of our everyday lives and is essential for human interaction and connection. From communication to feeding, our speech therapists work with children to create a connection and problem-solve along the way. Through play and fun activities, our therapists address difficulties with all speech-related obstacles.
Our Speech Therapists Address Difficulties with:
- Receptive & Expressive Language
- Motor Planning & Sequencing (Apraxia)
- Executive Functioning
- Reading & Reading Comprehension
We are proud to offer reading groups that utilize the Orton-Gillingham Approach to reading. The Orton-Gillingham program is known for being a multi-sensory, structured, sequential, and cumulative approach to teach children to read while gaining understanding of the English language.
Our therapists also help with Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) forms such as sign language, picture support, and utilizing high-tech communication devices to help your child communicate effectively. Learn More About AAC
We pride ourselves on using play-based, naturalistic strategies to teach children and create positive therapeutic relationships. Learning should be fun! We let kids be kids while encouraging them to communicate and behave in a way that will promote independence and allow for more social opportunities with others.
Our BCBAs regularly communicate with each child’s therapy team members, including: Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Social Workers, Teachers, Parents and/or other caregivers. We see the importance in having consistency across goals and addressing the individual needs of each child as a whole.
