    We have been extremely happy with the work both Meghan and her team have done with our children. From the very beginning they were collaborative, pro active and focused on helping our sons. While our sons needs are not atypical, they almost immediately recognized what strategies would help them comprehend and communicate more effectively. They have made tremendous progress in the relatively short period of time we have used them and we are extremely happy with all aspects of their program.

    School Treatment and Support

    Our therapists provide treatment in many of Chicago’s private schools.  They arrive fully prepared for each session with a plan and tools to elicit the goals established at the evaluation.  They work collaboratively with  the classroom teacher to determine how to best facilitate the goals through a push-in or pull-out approach.

    Our therapists are also available to conduct classroom observations and provide either an oral or written report. Additionally we are happy to consult or be an active participant in the Individual Education Plan process. 

    Looking for a new school for your child? Our therapists are pleased to offer School Placement Consultations.


    In-Home Treatment Option

    Many of our clients value the convenience of having one of our speech and language therapist provide treatment services in their home.  We offer therapy services seven days a week and will work with you to find a time that works best. We can also develop a home treatment plan for you to continue working with your child in between our visits.
